Following various leaks, the PC port of Housemarque's roguelike shooter is rumored to be releasing sometime this Summer.
Senior narrative designer Eevi Korhonen also talked about the difficulties the development team encountered while trying to inculcate story elements and manage pacing in a roguelike.
New details and screenshots on the PC ports of the two PlayStation exclusives have also allegedly leaked, lending further credence to the rumour.
A listing for "Oregon" contains references to Helios, Tower of Sisyphus and Returning along with several tags describing the shooter.
Balance changes haven't been revealed but there are bug fixes for co-op like crashes and black screens when traveling between biomes.
Game director Harry Krueger opens up about the importance of accessibility in game design and the lack of difficulty options in Returnal.
Two players can team up and tackle the story together, while solo players can challenge the new endless survival mode and net a high score.
Housemarque shares an extended look at the upcoming endless tower game mode called the Tower of Sisyphus, coming later this month.
Play through the entire story with a friend or challenge the various "phases" of the tower, each offering 20 floors of enemies and other dangers.
"We’re quite proud of what we accomplished with Returnal, and we’re quite excited to pursue that same trajectory as a company," says Returnal director Harry Krueger.
After the positive response to the last update that allowed a temporary save state, more options could follow for the roguelike shooter.
A cryptic tweet from the game's official account could be suggesting that the roguelike shooter will be getting new content soon.
Hoursemarque's roguelike shooter Returnal was awarded the Game of the Year award during the recent Develop: Star awards.
Housemarque finally addresses one of the biggest complaints with its rogue-lite shooter, allowing the creation of a mid-run suspend point.
It seems like a big upcoming update for Returnal recently went into beta, suggesting the game could see some significant changes soon.
Meanwhile, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, available on PS5 and PS4, currently stands at over 6.5 million units sold worldwide.
Housemarque's latest update for the rogue-lite shooter also fixes issues with Daily Challenges, save game corruption and some visual issues.
Housemarque CEO Ilari Kuittinen says the "usual suspects" from Sweden, China, and the United States were also looking to acquire the studio.
Contrary to Xbox Game Studios' seeming reliance on sheer numbers, PlayStation Studios seem to treading very carefully in terms of acquisitions.
Co-founder and managing director Ilari Kuittinen says the studio will be expanding and that Returnal should provide a "hint as to what's next."
