Returnal is one of the best PlayStation 5 games you can buy right now. But there is one critical critique: the system is recorded or not. Currently, the only way to keep your progress during your run is to put your console in rest mode. But this causes all sorts of hiccups about the PS5’s auto-update system and prevents you from multitasking. (We can’t help but wonder if Sony originally planned the Quick Resume-style feature for the PS5 that Housemarque was intended to use, but it was never made into the final OS.)
In any case, Finnish developer Housemarque is still searching for a solution. The Axios newsletter told Bigwig Marketing Mikael Haveri that the company was “looking to improve the game̵7;s limited recording system.” [but hasn’t] Decide on the best course of action. ”Do not expect this to be resolved in the near future.
In addition to the recording system, the team is busy with “new content and updates and fixes and stuff like that”, so one might expect some DLC to be available later this year. What would you like to see added to Returnal? Are you going to play new levels or are you looking for different modes and challenges? Maybe you will be grateful for both?
