Returnal first PC update: This patch makes the successful port even better

from Jonathan Harsh
With the February 17th patch, Returnal on PC got its first update – and at 1.3GB that packs quite a punch. The official patch notes are relatively short, but include some useful improvements.

Climax Studios and Housemarque have released the first update for Returnal. The patch released on February 17 requires 1.3 GB and brings various optimizations with it. Among other things, problems with Windows, widescreen monitors and PSN have been eliminated. The download should start automatically when Steam is opened. In addition, there will soon be a performance patch, as the developers reveal at the same time. This should take care of the stuttering that occurs more frequently with activated ray tracing.

And here are the official patch notes, in addition to which there are probably some smaller optimizations hidden in the update:

  • Fixed a rare issue where the music would stop during biome entry
  • Fix for certain ultrawide monitor setups not being recognized in full screen mode
  • Fix for incorrect Windows resolution detection on first boot
  • Fix for grass draw distance in Epic Particle settings
  • Fix for PSN login timeouts
  • Fix for rounding errors in benchmark results
