Those who are already exploring the alien world of Atropos will certainly have noticed the arrival of a new patch of Returnal, an update that brings Housemarque’s roguelike adventure to version 1.003.001 on PlayStation 5.
The update in question, from the approximate weight of 1 GB, is not accompanied by any clarification from the Finnish developers. In the absence of the official patch notes, the community organized itself to hunt for details by exchanging information on social media and on the main industry forums.
Well, from this enormous “virtual round table” no substantial novelty seems to emerge: the patch 1.003.001 it does not bring unpublished content or changes of any kind between gameplay features, graphic options or anything else. It would therefore be a “simple” hotfix aimed at improving the performance and stability of the title.
The update of May 3, therefore, does not integrate the talked about changes to the limitations on Returnal saves, a request made several times to the developers and to which the same Housemarque team responded, albeit partially, specifying that they want to “listen to the community. “and suggesting, in doing so, that they want to take action to allow players to make half-game saves. We’ll see.
In the meantime, for those wishing to learn more about the latest PS5 exclusive signed by the authors of Resogun and Alienation, we remind you that our review on the cosmic horror of Returnal is available on the pages of Everyeye.it.
