After sending out a patch and recalling that patch the same day, Housemarque seems to have a hold of the bugs plaguing gamers. Returnal patch 1.3.4 is out and gamers no longer have to worry about their 3-hour play session being for nothing. The following notes are via Housemarque.com:
Patch 1.3.4 is now live. This patch reverts to a previous stable build (1.3.1), also addressing a known Trophies issue, and fixing a keyboard exploit.
Please stay tuned for info on Patch 1.3.5 in the near future.
With Patch 1.3.4, all save games are safe to be played now.
For those who suffered issues with their save game after installing Patch 1.3.3, please see the scenarios below for the latest info after our investigations:
- Some game saves will have become corrupted with Patch 1.3.3, but maintained their file size. Players with those save games are able to safely continue their progress after installing Patch 1.3.4, without the need for using a backed up save game.
- Unfortunately other save games will have been effectively “deleted” by Patch 1.3.3, with their file size reducing to 0KB. These save games are not directly salvageable by Patch 1.3.4, without a backup save game available.
- In those cases, please try using a backed up save from PS+ if available, after installing Patch 1.3.4. With an intact save game from PS+, players can safely restore and continue playing with Patch 1.3.4 installed.
- Depending on the console settings, the cloud save may have been overwritten by the “deleted” save game noted above. If this is the case, progress will remain unsalvageable, even with Patch 1.3.4.
