Returnal's Latest Dev Diary Discusses Enemies and Bosses, Shows New Gameplay

The latest (and probably last) episode of the HouseCast is here. This dev diary series has shone a light on Returnal, the upcoming sci-fi shooter from Finnish studio Housemarque. Each episode contains some insight from the team, as well as some snippets of fresh gameplay footage. The most recent is all about the enemies and bosses you'll face on Atropos, the planet on which Selene finds herself caught in an endless cycle.

pls let gameplay just be super good and a solid 60fps, dont care for graphics really

Every video shown has tons of effects happening and frame drops. I don’t think it’s going to be a locked 60fps. Hopefully but doubtful.

Regardless the games looks intense and fun. The enemies are pretty terrifying.

I will bet it’s a locked 60. DF will do a video about it and it will come out that it is practically a perfect 60fps. Might be a weird hiccup once in a blue moon, but it will be locked 60. And with the videos showing frame rate drops I haven’t seen what you are talking about.

RE8 now that is a game where you can tell In the trailers that it’s having frame issues. But when you actually play the demo for that game it’s not there.

Every game Sony have released thus far on the ps5 has been solid. Even none Sony games have been coming out and running 60fps on the ps5 while the Xbox struggles. Bookmark this comment. It will be 60fps. Easy.

“I will bet it’s a locked 60.“

Hopefully. Housmarque haven’t made a bad game yet so I expect Returnal to be the same. I like what I’ve seen so far.

I suspect those clips being from still-being-polished code. The retail product might fair better and solidly lock that frame-rate?

S2Killinit20d ago

Its going to be good. I got a feeling.

Palitera20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

To me it looks no more than decent, which would make it one of the worst Housemarque title.

Talk about judging a book by it's cover. How about we just wait and see. I've played alot of House Marque games, and this is by far the most ambitious, and the most innovative title that they have done. So there's that.

I played a lot of them too. This does not seem the most ambitious to me (Resogun, Nex Machina and Alienation) nor the most innovative, judging on how similar it seems to Risk of Rain. Yes, it is not a side-scroller or top down shooter, and it changes a lot... for them.

Apart from that, they are one of my two favorite studios, but this game just seems off to me.

This is definitely the best gameplay that they've shown so far.
