Multiple reports have surfaced stating more frequent Returnal game crashes, and "door" issues after the latest (May 3) patch.
I finished the game yesterday. Is not that difficult when you keep going and get used to it. Now I have to get the sun faces on order to get the final extended ending but I will wait until this situation is fixed. One of the best games I have played. Truly remarkable.
The second act IMO is loads easier than the first, despite it having less teleporters (in my run) manage to clear the second act with a breeze and “beat” the game. Re ran act one and it’s a breeze also now
Agreed. I had 5 tries on the first act, but cleared act 2 on the first try. Act 3 had me demolished though. Edit: Disregard my comment. I thought acts meant biomes. I haven't really gotten far it seems, haha.
I’m about 14 hrs in right now, and I haven’t experienced one crash yet.
Same here, wonder if it was just a select few.
I haven't either but I have experienced doors not opening.
The game crashed every time in the opening cut scene right before the gameplay starts, where she gets off the ground and the camera gets behind her right shoulder. Every freaking time. I have not experienced any gameplay because of this. I returned the game on May 2nd. I will wait until it's all sorted out.
Yeah I can confirmt that I didn't have a single crach until the latest patch. Now doors won't open, teleporters won't work etc. Also the item drops seem to have... bugged or frozen, I'm just not getting drops from items. I didnt have any of these problems prior to the patch, and have made it to the second boss a few times.
Yikes. Sorry to hear that. Doors hopefully not an issue though.
Are you using the pre-order suits? There's belief that the dlc suits are what's causing the door glitch. I ran into the lockdown glitch before, changed to the default suit and so far it hasn't happened. You might wanna try that until there's an official fix.
Thanks man. Yeah, I was actually usung the DLC suits. In fact each time I died I swapped to a different suit. I stopped using the DLC suits and no I haven't have a single crash or bug since.
No crashes here yet - except the cutscene I keep skipping through since I suck so much. Loving this game, surely whatever issues are from this patch will get fixed up quickly.
I guess I'll pick it back up after a patch is released to fix the crashes. I'm not risking my system even though I love the game
This is why we shouldn't have doors
I haven't had any issues at all.
30th April > 3rd May Can studios just say due to the pandemic we don't have enough Q/A testers? My fault also, shouldn't have auto-update on games -_-
Game hasn't crashed for me yet, but I have seen little graphical bugs here and there.
I take it back, my PS5 just hard crashed while I was finally having a good run. Straight up just turned off! I am so pissed off, I don't even want to play this stupid game anymore! GRRRRRR
Im kinda pissed that I didn’t get two trophies that took a long time to get because it’s bugged. I hope it gets fixed soon.
Got the patch this morning,thought I was going to put in 30 minutes to and hour but I kept getting stronger and before l knew it. I was at the last boss with a space man,a parasite that revive,a checkpoint and a level 30 gun with 5 unlocks mods on it. I kick some 👽 butt today.
This will sell much more yet. I'd imagine a patch is incoming turning it into more traditional saves etc possibly harder difficulty extra game modes and regions to explore. They have an excellent new ip now they have to make most of it
I have the game patched and no crashes for me so far or door teleporter issues
I had a crash right after finding out my rest mode save and hours of grinding were lost this morning. Thought the game was going to be unplayable for min, but it only happened once in several hours of gaming today. IDK what the door issue is, but I did get stuck in one of those bonus rooms once. Wouldn't let me pick up the item from the fabricator or use the translocator to get out.
None sense. I cracked 20 hrs in. No single crash occurred. The only thing I encountered is the door glitch and this was because of the preorder suit. I switched to the original suit and it is flawless.
I just hit the door issue. It's a gut punch when you've made decent progress in a run. Great game, but with how long the runs are and the lack of checkpoints mid run, I'm tempted to put the game down for a bit until this is patched.
Apparently it has to do with the pre-order suits. If you switch to the default suit the door glitch shouldn't happen.
I got to the first boss on my first run after 2 hours, but the game crashed mid boss fight. Frustrating as F, but I have not experienced a crash since. I love the game and it's easily a 9/10 to me so far, but I'm more afraid of the game crashing than dying from any of the enemies.
I'm STILL having locked door issues and it's pissing me off. I paid $70 for this game and for it not to work perfectly it's unacceptable. Idc how good the game is if it doesn't work properly what good is that? As far as saves go I'd just like a simple save outside the boss room is be fine with that.
