Returnal 2.0 update is here, bringing the ability to suspend your cycle and a photo mode to Atropos!

The story is too old to be commented.

Photo mode and the ability to suspend a run??

Thank you Housemarque 🙏🏼

Obelisk9241d ago

Yesss, time to replay this masterpiece!

darthv7241d ago

sounds like a much needed update from what others have said. This is one I have not yet picked up but it looks like the time is right to give it a go.

OptimusDK41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

I hope you are Bering sarcastic … suspend should have been there from the start and Photo mode whatever

dbcoops40d ago

You're right it should have been but credit where credit is do, at least they added it based on feedback.

garos8240d ago

game is goty regardless of this update imo. there were some early bird bugs yes that have been addressed but that doesnt take away anything from what a beautiful and fun game this is to play.

Suspend? What a pussy ass update smh

SyntheticForm40d ago

Pussy-ass as in it coddles the player too much and removes what you see as a key aspect of Returnal as a hardcore roguelike? Or is there another reason you're upset?

I think it was sorely needed and will significantly boost sales. Sometimes (often) life gets in the way of video games, and having the option to suspend will increase the game's allure tenfold.

Hell, just hearing about this I'm going to pay the full $69.99 for this game without hesitation.

Well, time to actually play Returnal now.

oldenjon41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

No excuses now. Play it already! GOTY fasho.

iplay1up240d ago (Edited 40d ago )

This going up against Forza 5, and Halo? Lol! It would be a different story, if those were up against GOW, Or Horizon Forbidden West.

oldenjon40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

@iplay1up2 LOL! Are either of those games even eligible? Also, isn't the last time Halo won an award back when Bungie was the developer? Like 2007 or something lol? I don't actually think Returnal will win, it's just my personal GOTY. You're hilarious!

Hofstaderman40d ago

You know Xbox players have it bad when they cross their fingers hoping Sony does not release any of their big hitters in the hope that a Xbox game can stand a chance for GOTY @iplay1up2

frostypants41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Yep. Better late than never on the ability to save and quit. Not sure why some people considered functionality that all of the Souls games have (non-exploitable progression save) as such a big ask. But glad it's here and now I'll play it.

JEECE41d ago

Because there are people who will jump at any perceived opportunity to frame themselves as more hardcore than other players, even if it doesn't really make any sense.

thorstein40d ago

No reason not to play it before.

monkey60241d ago

Suspended makes a huge difference for me. The game goes from unplayable because I've a toddler to now I can stop it and not lose everything. I'll be picking it up now

TheDoomedGuy41d ago

I managed with 2 toddlers and a newborn. Their quiet times or naps and anytime after 8pm was the time I could play.

I would place the ps5 on sleep and that would keep the game suspended so to speak.

VivaLaManual41d ago

Cool. That schedule may not work for OP, so good that he has other options now.

VenomCarnage8941d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Super cool aside from the fact that a PlayStation update or a game update while in rest most would completely take the piss out of your strategy, hence the necessity for this current patch in the first place

monkey60241d ago

Dude I don't know how you could manage anything with 2 todlers and a newborn ha fair play! I'm run ragged with just the 1!

bloop41d ago

All babies are different, unfortunately. I have a one and a half year old that hasn't slept since the day she was born and my PS5 has seen barely any use. Every time I get a chance to sit down for a session she kicks off on a mad one..... e-v-e-r-y time....... guaran-fucking-teed!!! 🙁

CobraKai41d ago

Yeah. For me, the price to pay to play is sleep. Ida have to sacrifice 2 hours of sleep to get some game time in.

TheDoomedGuy40d ago (Edited 40d ago )

You could also turn off those automatic updates and installs.

As another user said every baby is different but they tend to take after the parents personalities. I come from a family of ridiculously calm people and so does my wife so our kids start sleeping through the night after about 2 weeks and they only wake up once in the night before then. They also take 1 - 2 naps throughout the day that range between 3-5 hours in total. And they're all sleep trained so nights are easy.

It gets easier after the 2nd child. As in its always overwhelming and you either begin to let go or you go nuts.

Kurt Russell40d ago

I have a toddler and a newborn. When they go to sleep... I am shattered and ready to sleep myself.

Now it's worth buying and getting into for me. I only have a maximum of an hr of gaming a day, because I have so many other daily responsibilities to take care of

Eonjay41d ago

This is now effectivly a different game lol. Still my GOTY . And photo mode!

Nakiro41d ago

It's better than it was when it launched but I wouldn't call it different. This is exactly why I wait for a while before jumping into new games, just gets better and cheaper over the time for the most part.

LucasRuinedChildhood41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

Completely agree. I play almost nothing at launch anymore and usually wait at least a month, but I'm always weary of spoilers though.

I didn't play Miles Morales when it launched and by the time I played it, they'd added RT performance, and then they optimized the code and made the internal resolution for ray tracing the same as the overall resolution (4 time higher, I think) after R&C came out. I feel like I got a much better experience than those who played it at launch.

Nakiro41d ago

That has definitely been a thing recently.

The whole thing for me started because of DLC actually. It just got frustrating having to re-learn the controls and mechanics when a game added something 6 months after I finished it.

GaboonViper40d ago

I have heard nothing but absolute praise for this game and can't wait to play it myself when i can finally snag a PS5.

garos8240d ago

its pretty damn good. My GOTY so far

Sunny_D40d ago

In a way atleast it’s not really a save point. You can save that specific place in the run but it won’t be saved once you resume. You also can’t suspend when you fight a boss or during combat which I think is the best way to do it.
