Returnal: Home - how to get inside? Returnal guide, walkthrough

On this page of the Returnal guide, we suggest how to get to the main character's home – you come across it when exploring Atropos. You will learn how to open the front door of the house and what attractions are waiting inside.

Selene's home - how to find?

The house of the main character of Returnal can be found randomly during the game - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

The house of the main character of Returnal can be found randomly during the game. Due to procedurally generated locations, it is impossible to tell when you will find the house. However, this should happen when exploring the Overgrown Ruins - the first out of the six biomes (regions) of the game's world.

How to open the door of the house?

When you try to examine the house, you will find out that its front door is locked - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

When you try to examine the house, you will find out that its front door is locked. You can't destroy them with firearms or melee weapons because the house is "indestructible".

You need to find the House Key - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

You need to find the House Key. You need to investigate neighboring locations – eventually, you will come across a container with the key.

It is worth noting that the key is added to the inventory of the heroine as the so-called permanent equipment. You won't lose it even after restarting the cycle – you will be able to use it repeatedly to open the house.

With the key, you can go back to the home and use it to unlock the door - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

With the key, you can go back to the home and use it to unlock the door.

Exploring the home

Exploration of the house takes place in FPP - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

Exploration of the house takes place in FPP. You can explore the available corridors and rooms and examine the interactive items marked by the game.

When you are done with exploring the house for the first time, you will get the Welcome Home trophy and unlock an artifact - an Astronaut Figurine - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

When you are done with exploring the house for the first time, you will get the Welcome Home trophy and unlock an artifact - an Astronaut Figurine. This item resurrects Selene once.

The figurine is not permanent equipment. However, you can get it in the next cycles, e.g. by crafting the item in a fabricator.

In the following cycles, we can repeatedly come across Selene's house in the Overgrown Ruins - Returnal: Home - how to get inside? - Exploration - Returnal Guide

In the following cycles, we can repeatedly come across Selene's house in the Overgrown Ruins. The game won't let us re-investigate it unless we have sufficiently progressed the main storyline. The opportunity to re-examine the house should become available each time we defeat a new main boss in the game. Once we progress the main story further, the house will also begin to appear in the Echoing Ruins.

Get all the cut-scenes when exploring the house to unlock the Sins of the Mother trophy.

After witnessing a scene in the house, we may encounter an error / bug that will prevent us from returning to TPP mode and continuing to explore the area. If we can't stay still and none of the buttons work, we'll need to resort to restarting the game.
