Returnal Known Issues by Housemarque Listed (Update)

Returnal Update 01.003.003

While PS5 gamers got an early treat with Housemarque’s Returnal, not everything has been perfect for the game so far. But thankfully, Housemarque is aware of the Returnal known issues, and what gamers have been asking (demanding?) for since the game launched.

Check out the list as posted by Housemarque on the game’s official Discord channel.

Update (5/3/21): We copied and pasted the wrong list of known issues previously, and have since amended. Apologies for the mistake.

Returnal Known Issues:

Game does not have a save option The game team is aware of the issue. There’s no need to bring it into our attention any more.

Not able to interact with the fabricators and not able to pass through doors If you are using a pre-order suit. Enter the pause menu and select “Restart your run”. Select the plain Selene suit in your spaceship. (Your run will be aborted, but any permanent progress and weapon upgrade progress is kept.)

Audio issues Audio may be too loud or cut off completely.

Barnacles not appearing visually Invisible barnacles may stalk the map and suck you up, even though you can’t see them.

After remapping controls, some interactions may not work Custom control mapping may prevent you from reading items in the house, cleansing chests or other interactions. To fix the issue (for now), use default controller settings.

The game team is aware of the issue. There’s no need to bring it into our attention any more.

The studio seems to be getting enough of these, that they even had to tweet about it, acknowledging that yes, they have heard the suggestions loud and clear.

Returnal seems to be the first big game for Sony this year, with a lot of reviews agreeing that it’s a solid game.

Our review of Returnal is hitting the site shortly (late review code and all that), so make sure to watch out for it.
