Sony's next major PlayStation 5 exclusive is right around the corner. We've known about Returnal since its unveiling last summer, and we're now just a few weeks away from the latest effort from Housemarque. We've seen a fair amount of the sci-fi shooter, but if you're desperate for more, watch the latest HouseCast dev diary, embedded above.

The focus in the video is on the narrative, and how it's been intertwined with gameplay. There aren't any new story details to discover, but narrative director Gregory Louden touches on how the player will learn about the alien planet Atropos alongside Selene, as well as find out more about her past. It's certainly an interesting watch, and there are some new gameplay snippets that show off a little more of the frantic combat.

For more insight on the game's story and how it works alongside the game's rogue-lite structure, be sure to read our hands-off preview and interview with Housemarque.

Returnal finally arrives on PS5 on 30th April. We're pretty excited, but how about you? Are you ready to unravel the mysteries of Atropos? Escape the loop in the comments section below.
