Developer Housemarque has announced the rollout of a brand new patch for its acclaimed PlayStation 5 exclusive, Returnal, today. Dubbed Patch 1.4.1, the update is a small one according to the Returnal patch notes, ushering in a few minor tweaks and changes.
The changes include a duo of fixes to Returnal’s daily challenges relating to loot spawns and completion issues. Alongside, there are small fixes for a rare save-game corruption issue and a visual issue when scanning newly unearthed items.
Returnal Patch 1.4.1 rolls out today, July 5, at 12 pm EEST/10 am BST/2 am PST/5 am PS5, so it should be available to download for all players as your read this. As Housemarque advises, if the game is in rest mode, it will shut down to install update 1.4.1, so tough luck for those mid-run.

In other news, head of PlayStation Studios, Herman Hulst, announced last week the acquisition of developer Housemarque, welcoming the Returnal developer as the 13th studio to join the PlayStation Studios family. Housemarque co-founder and managing director Ilari Kuittinen said of the acquisition:
We are so excited to finally join the PlayStation Studios family! This gives our studio a clear future and a stable opportunity to continue delivering on gameplay centric approaches, while still experimenting with new methods of narrative delivery and pushing the boundaries of this modern artform. Locally here in Helsinki, this also means that we will officially expand the PlayStation family to a growing industry hub and secure the legacy of the oldest game studio in Finland.”
Once again, Returnal update 1.4.1 is now live for PlayStation 5.
