Housemarque and Climax Studios release a new update, improving performance and fixing in-game issues.

Housemarque and Climax Studios have rolled out the April 19th Update for their popular sci-fi action game, Returnal. This update brings several significant changes and improvements, including support for AMD FSR 2.0 and the option to rebuild your PSO cache data manually. After installing the update, players can expect better performance and a smoother gaming experience.

AMD FSR 2.0 Support: The update introduces support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0, a cutting-edge upscaling technology that aims to enhance in-game visuals while maintaining a high frame rate. With this feature, Returnal players can enjoy better graphics without sacrificing performance.

Option to Rebuild PSO Cache: The update adds an option to manually rebuild the Pipeline State Object (PSO) cache in the game’s settings under Graphics. This feature helps optimize performance by allowing players to clear and rebuild the cache data, potentially reducing stuttering and other graphical issues.
