Game studio Housemarque has recently released a new update for popular roguelike video game Returnal and it fixes a certain issue that has been plaguing players for a long time.
One of the biggest issues that has been bugging players since the launch of the game was that it would show them the corpses of other players who died in the area. Before, it would be easy to find them and it would give them an advantage or even a problem depending on the purpose. Either they scavenge for items or avenge them, which the latter could let them face difficult mini-boss spawns that could kill them. Later on, these corpses would not appear.
With patch 1.3.7, the corpses are now appearing. Before, some members of the gaming community did not even know that this was a thing.
Here’s the full patch notes:
Fixed an issue with Deceased Scouts not appearing as often as intended.
After having one of their Deceased Scout corpses scavenged, players will no longer receive a negative-effect parasite on startup.
Fixed an issue where the Ophion boss might disappear after a player uses the Reconstructor during the fight.
Fixed a rare audio bug causing loud noises during combat.
Fixed a small number of issues where players might become stuck in various rooms.
Fixed several issues where the player might encounter a black screen during the credits or whilst playing.
