PS5 exclusive Returnal, from the geniuses at Housemarque, was one of the top games of last year. Now it’s just gotten even better.

An update – Returnal: Ascension – has launched that brings co-op play to what we thought was a resolutely single player experience. Not only does it offer companionship in-game, this update is also free and available right now.

The ‘HouseCast’ video below offers us a deep dive into the game update, which also includes a new Tower of Sisyphus challenge mode, that sounds like it’s set to test the mettle of the most hardened Returnal players.

Returnal is available now at JB Hi-Fi.
