By accessing the Chronosis portal near the crash landing (and in other parts of the game), you’ll have the option to either host or join a public or private cycle. Once your connection is established, a Selene from another timeline will join your session and your shared journey will begin.
In co-op, the game works in a similar fashion to single-player Returnal. However, if players get too far apart, they will be tethered back together. If one of the players is downed, the other one has the option to revive them.
Progression is tied to the host. Client players who join to help will also get to keep some progress they make – such as collecting logs and xenoglyphs – and the more games they assist with the more their Scout Rank will grow.
After crash-landing on a shape-shifting alien planet, Selene finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again she’s defeated, forced to restart her journey every time she dies.
In this roguelike shooter, both the planet and your equipment change with every cycle, forcing you to adapt your play style and take on evolving challenges.
Engage enemies in bullet hell-fuelled clashes.
Scavenge alien tech for upgrades to your abilities.
Forge a personal connection with the planet and piece together Selene’s story.
