Today, Housemarque Games deployed the Returnal update 1.3.7, which is a small hotfix to get rid of multiple bugs, especially those related to Ophion and Deceased Scout.

The most recent exclusive triple-A launch for PS5 was Returnal. The latest shooter from Housemarque games delivers an unforgiving, hardcore roguelike experience.

The game had a well-received launch both by reviewers and users, however, a part of the community still demands an easy mode, which might be on the developer’s plans for the future of the game.

For now, the only things that updates contain are bug fixes and overall improvements. Let’s have a look at the patch notes of the game’s latest update:
