Revealed last week, Returnal‘s upcoming DLC “Ascension” has received a new gameplay trailer that takes a look at the new Tower of Sisyphus. Well, it’s more of an 18-minute gameplay walkthrough for Ascension, featuring Returnal‘s game director Harry Krueger and narrative director Gregory Louden.
The Ascension update is set to arrive on March 22nd, and will introduce 2-player co-op to Returnal, along with the “endless mode” found in the Tower of Sisyphus. Each Phase in the Tower will culminate with an encounter with Algos, which will also get increasingly harder as you advance through the mode. The ultimate goal of the mode is the high score chase, although there will be a new boss, new items and some new story content.
Currently, Returnal is available exclusively for the PlayStation 5. And if you’re looking for more Returnal content, give a read to Wesley’s take on Returnal‘s roguelike gameplay.
