Suspend Cycle + Photo Mode
Housemarque have announced two new features in the update 2.0 for Returnal - Suspend Cycle and Photo Mode.
The Suspend Cycle is not a typical ‘Save Game’ function, but instead creates a single use suspend point that is deleted once resuming gameplay. If you choose to suspend cycle again, a new point will be captured from that point onwards. However restrictions are placed during boss battles, first-person sequences, cinematics or intense combat scenarios, meaning suspend points won’t function to keep the game’s difficulty high.
The Photo Mode is self-explanatory as you can pause the game and take photos with all the available settings. Its only during first person sequences, whereby photos cannot be taken.
