You can still save your file by saving Returnal.
Following yesterday's fiasco with Returnal patch 1.3.3 that hurt saving players, developer Housemarque has officially detailed the next steps.
For starters, a new patch has been released – version 1.3.4 – that includes changes to 1.3.3, while fixing the saving corruption bug. Everyone should download this patch. Housemarque details three scenarios for players who already have saved files damaged by 1.3.3.
If you played the game after installing patch 1.3.3, check your save file size. If it is larger than 0KB, you can resume playing after installing patch 1.3.4. However, if the file size is read as 0KB, it means that all your progress has been deleted and the patch does not fix that.
If you lost your save file, you should try downloading the PlayStation Plus backed up cloud save, after installing the new patch. If your console has already uploaded the corrupt save to the cloud, you’re sad.
It's definitely a mess, but hopefully you can still restore your previously undamaged save.
Regarding what the patch actually changed beyond that, Housemarque revealed that a number of problems caused by Trophies in some situations to remain locked, have been fixed. Unfortunately, you won ' t be rewarded with those Trophies, so you don ' t have to do what it takes to unlock them.
The patch also removes cheat codes enabled by connecting to a keyboard, and does so so you can only recover once your crashed ship (from the first biome).
