Returnal Patch 1.4.0 Tweaks Trophies, Improves UI and Fixes Bugs

Returnal Sony

Returnal, the rogue-like PlayStation 5-exclusive title, just received an update today. Patch 1.4.0 makes adjustments to the Trophies system, improves UI elements, fixes bugs related to audio, and adds some balancing changes.

From now on, you can replay some Act 1 and Act 2 trophies. You will also be able to unlock Trophies retroactively, which you can’t replay. Four Scout Logs will now appear more often in more locations. When firing a weapon, HUD labels for items will be hidden. The audio sync bug issue in the secret ending is fixed, and players can now change audio input from the game’s menu.

The game still doesn’t support a manual save game system. So, if you have to go somewhere mid-run, then you will have to put your PS5 in Rest Mode. Also, updating the game will close the game. So, you might wanna finish your run before updating. Some of the changes made by the update are mentioned below.


  • Platinum: Fixed an issue where 1 Cipher was sometimes unobtainable for Biome Survey Trophies
  • Platinum: Fixed an issue where some Activity Cards displayed an incorrect count
  • UI: Fixed an issue where two actions could be mapped to a single button after switching controller presets
  • Audio: General mix improvements across the experience
  • Audio: Improved surround sound setup support across the experience
  • Audio: Added more DualSense haptics across cinematic moments for deeper immersion
  • Audio: Added DualSense haptics when using the Icarian Grapnel
  • Audio: Improved the dynamic range recommendations system
  • Audio: Allow users to override the dynamic range recommendations

Game Balances

  • Balance: Various bug fixes to certain artifacts, parasites, consumables, and when certain malfunctions can occur in the early parts of the game
  • Balance: Players no longer receive parasites as rewards when players avenge their corpses
  • Balance: Enemies, Weapons, and Bosses - difficulty adjustments in all Biomes for a more balanced gameplay experience
