Returnal 2.0 Update Adds Suspend Cycle And Photo Mode

Returnal was released earlier in the year. It received a positive review, particularly here. Game Informer It received a score of 9.5 out 10One critique that some made of the Roguelite was that there needed to be a save system. 

Before the 2.0 update, if you needed to stop a run in Returnal, there was no way to save – all your progress would be lost when you turn off your PlayStation 5. Returnal runs can easily last hours and it wasn’t great when something came up that caused you to leave your PS5 as it essentially meant your hours of time would now amount to nothing. Housemarque seems to have heard the people who wanted a save system. Update 2.0 is available in-game and features a Suspend Cycle. 

“One of the main features of this update is the Suspend Cycle functionality, which will allow you to pause your cycle to be continued later on, letting you exit the game and turn off your console without losing your progress in that session,” the PlayStation Blog postThe following information is about the update. “The structure of the game remains unchanged, so this functionality is not a traditional mid-game ‘Save Game’ option: by suspending the cycle, Returnal will simply create a single use suspend point, and once you resume playing, the suspend point is deleted and cannot be used again.” 

If you start a new run after a suspension point has been reached, your previous suspend point will be deleted and all of your current progress will be retained. It is possible to make another suspend point during the run. 

Housemarque says suspend points will be available during most parts of a given run except during boss battles, cinematics, first-person sequences, or during “intense combat scenarios,” as it “felt there are certain moments in Returnal that are best experienced unfragmented to preserve the intended challenge and flow.” 


Returnal’s Update 2.0 also brings with it a new Photo Mode for the game. 

“At any point during the game (except some limited circumstances like our first-person sequences), you can simply pause the game and enter Photo Mode, which will put you in control of the camera,” Housemarque writes in the PlayStation Blog post. You can then use the analog sticks and adaptive triggers to move the camera around and pick the perfect angle for your photo.” 

Other settings include aperture, saturation and contrast as well as focal distance, lens distance, shutter speed, tint, contrast, set of different light sources. Returnal’s Update 2.0 is now live in-game.
