Our sincerest apologies.
Housemarque’s Patch 1.3.3 will drop later today for Returnal and for the first time (after two previous patches) we have actual patch notes!
Fixed an issue where certain Trophies might not unlock under specific gameplay conditions. Note: missing Trophies will need to be replayed to unlock.
Multiple stability fixes addressing rare crashes/hangs.
Fixed issue with pre-order suits occasionally blocking item collection and door opening.
Fixed incorrect healing behavior when resting in Helios.
Configuration changes to increase the number of scout corpses available in all biomes.
Fixed issues with certain custom controller mappings.
Numerous minor fixes and improvements.
Well that’s… brief (that’s what she said). I was expecting something more detailed but hey, it’s better than nothing right?
The most interesting note to me though is the one about increasing the number of scout corpses in biomes. I’ve put several hours into this and am just now on the fourth biome and I’ve yet to see one scout corpse. So here’s hoping I see one.
Also, trophy hunters that had glitches may not be happy about having to replay to unlock glitched trophies.
I love this game but it is punishing. However, I am learning more and more about adapting my game style as I play (please don’t look at my angry game rage Twitter rant from Friday night). I’ve also haven’t run into any game issues yet other than the game crashing only once. What do you think about the game and are you pleased with the patch notes?
