Launching this Friday, the first great original exclusive to the PS5 will fascinate, captivate and make the world angry. One problematic aspect of Housemarque’s game that was addressed in our TEST did not fall on deaf ears.

As a pure and (above all) tough villain, Returnal has an answer. A boon for players looking for a challenge, an ordeal for those who don’t want to invest. And what a shame if you hadn’t taken the time to learn about the genre he has become one of the best ambassadors for.
Punishingly, he refuses to let the players stasis their progress. You quit, you come back to the beginning of the cycle, it’s like that, it’s life and a shame when you have a wild restart or have to commit yourself. The only solution to staying in the state of a started game: putting the console on standby, which is not a reflex for everyone. Not very ecological and there is a risk of a power failure.
Just take a break
According to our Joniwan, which the author of this article joins more than once, other Returnal players have complained about this lack of flexibility, this lack of pause (and not storage) that was recorded over the course. One of them opened a discussion about reddit to express his frustration after dropping a run at 3:00 a.m. – he doesn’t leave his consoles on standby. His complaint? A solution of this type automatically saves every crossed door, which would destroy death itself so as not to denature the challenge. He’s not the only one.
As proof that the Finnish developers are paying attention, they quickly forwarded his post with a nice little note about the brave people who dared to step on the soil of Atropos.
We hear the fellowship and we love you all. Now there is nothing to announce, but keep playing and enjoy the challenge as best you can!#Returnal# PS5

We hear the fellowship and we love you all. We haven’t announced anything yet, but keep playing and enjoying the challenge as you do!
Even if we don’t have false hopes, the fact that Housemarque is “aware” suggests that certain aspects of the game might be Amnags. Most of the popular Snape likes that some may have discovered with questioning eyebrows, sweaty palms, and an energy too tightly focused on their tongue on Returnal have an undeniable waypoint system. Experience made up of unjust deaths and perseverance. Take Hades: Without that and without preventing everything from being cut during a Zagreus run, would he have been so well received and so rewarded?
Anyway Returns are possible for PS5and you will drool super
