One of the main complaints of players on , apart from the high level of difficulty, is that so far there has been no right way to get in the middle of running. Of course, you can leave your PS5 turned on or put it to sleep, but if there is a power outage or automatic system software update overnight, you will lose all your progress. Since running can take hours, it wasn’t great to have any save-state option.
Housemarque finally tried to solve the problem Returnal’s 2.0 patch. With the Suspend Cycle option, you can pause your run, create a breakpoint and close the game without worrying too much about losing progress.
However, there are some caveats. You will only be able to continue running from any point of suspension once. So don’t expect to return to that point if (or more likely when) Selene dies. It’s a smart way to introduce a save system and allow players to rest without disturbing the “start-when-you-die” game structure.
You will not be able to create a breakpoint in certain scenarios either. If you’re in the middle of a boss battle, an intense combat sequence, a movie, or a first-person section, you’re going to have to experience it, one way or another. “We felt there were certain moments Return which is best experienced unfragmented to preserve the intended challenge and flow, ”wrote game director Harry Krueger in.
As deadly as the biomes of Atropos are, they are often beautiful. Another feature that helps you capture landmarks Return players were looking to have it in play now – Photo Mode. Except in certain situations (such as first-person parts), you can pause the PS5 exclusive and enter Photo Mode.
A selection of tools is available to you, including settings such as focal length, aperture, color gradient, saturation and contrast, as well as a way to change the brightness of the scene. There are also filters, effects, frames, coloring options, and other ways to enhance your image before capturing it.
Meanwhile, Sony is scheduled to host next Wednesday. The exhibition will run for about 20 minutes and will primarily focus on third-party games, but don’t be surprised if Sony inserts one or two first-party games.
