Returnal is a roguelike psychological third-person shooter developed by Housemarque and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. Set in a futuristic universe, the game follows Selene, a cosmic explorer and pilot, who lands on the planet Atropos in search of a mysterious signal. The situation rapidly deteriorates as Selene finds herself cut off and trapped in a time loop on the dark, dismal world where not even death provides relief. Resurrected after each fatal encounter, Selene is forced to find a way off the hostile, ever-changing world as she is beset by both extraterrestrial entities and sinister visions of inexplicable origin.
Returnal (Original Soundtrack) features a haunting score composed by renowned composer Bobby Krlic (Midsommar) for the PlayStation 5 game. Best known for his work as the Haxan Cloak, Krlic brings his experience as an award-winning composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist to Returnal, imbuing the score with a gritty and experimental quality that matches the tone of the third-person shooter game. Now available on vinyl, the score to Returnal is pressed on a transparent yellow vinyl housed in a dress jacket. A credit insert is also included.
