It seems that Housemarque will publish a larger update for Returnal shortly. Thus, the usually reliable PlayStation Patch Tracker Playstation Game Size can be found that recently a 6 GB update was loaded for the development version of the game on the Sony s servers.
For the standard player, the update for Return is not yet accessible. Also is unknown when it will come to a publication. However, the size of the patch indicates that new features may be added, including maybe the long historic memory option.
Storage system was criticized
Last May, Housemarque emphasized that there is still no decision on how to best resolve the criticized lack of storage options, as the problem is complicated by the different expectations of the players.
So Returnal does not give the players the opportunity to store their progress during the game, as risk reward dynamics - in which the players will be returned to the beginning of the game after their deaths with virtually none of their objects - as a central component of the genre.
However, the Finnish studio emphasized shortly after the publication of Returnal that the criticism of the players is quite to heart. Many of them complained about it that the game sessions can take too long and there is no way to interrupt and store the game, except to put the PS5 console in the hibernation.
The Marketing Director Mikael Havari explained in this context that Housemarque thinks about how the problem of storing can be solved. We understand that there are some systems that are currently an obstacle, says his words before adding that it was the intention of the developer to put the players in a focused hardcore mentality.
