Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Returnal » Returnal – February 17th Patch is Now Available

Welcome to Atropos!

We are honoured to have so many new players experiencing our dark, deep and beautiful action thriller, Returnal!

Bringing Returnal to PC and capturing that PlayStation 5 experience took a lot of work and focus from the team at Climax Studios, with support from Housemarque and XDEV. We have been blown away and are so thankful for the amazing reviews, feedback and reports you have shared with us so far.

We have continued to work on Returnal since launch, monitoring your feedback and will continue to work on patch updates to support the game ahead.

Break the cycle on PC and find our February 17th patch notes below!
