if you want more return the goods We have good news for you in your life: sony and House brand Announced today at the State of Play showcase, the game is getting a huge 3.0 update in the form of Ascension
The huge new update will introduce a slew of features, including co-op (though we’re still a little unclear on how this will work) and survival mode, as well as new story beats tied to Selene’s cursed existence.
Check out the update trailer below.
“Returnal Ascension adds a co-op mode that lets you share your entire journey through Atropos’ ever-changing labyrinth with other players,” Sony said in a press rele ase.
“This update also adds the Tower of Sisyphus – accessible as long as you unlock the Ikaria Grab. This is an ascending challenge with increasingly dangerous stages, each containing twenty floors. Once inside, eliminate all enemies on each floor and secure access to the next floor. Be prepared for what you may encounter…”
The Ascension update will return on PS5 and PC on March 22, 2022.
Returnal launched last April and was a huge success, as the developers behind Resogun, Nex Machina and Alienation launched a powerful new direction for its game output. In Returnal, you play as Selene, a space pilot whose ship crashes on an alien planet.
Every time she dies, she’s forced to relive those moments, just to witness different changes to the same planet, new room layouts, new enemy variants and new buffs/debuffs. It’s a rogue lite, done differently (and beautifully, we may add).
The game has good reviews, and if you want to know more, you can check out our review of the game here.
