Returnal is a rogue-lite, with my areas to explore and upgrades to find. But of course, it's not that simple. Bosses prevent you from navigating your way between different biomes, and these must be defeated to progress.

In Returnal, you'll face five bosses in total across all six biomes. The only biome that you won't encounter a boss is the Fractured Wastes. The other five biomes, the boss, must be killed.

Each of these bosses will be more difficult than the last and will test you in what you've learned throughout your time with Returnal. Have you learned to dodge bullets and lasers?



Do you have to fight bosses more than once?

Once you kill a boss, you don't need to kill it again if you die. All bosses remain beaten, so you can bypass them on new runs, which will speed up progress.

But if you want, you can challenge any boss as many times as you want. This can be done by returning to where you fought him or by finding a red door located on your map.

If you're not sure when the game saves or what happens when you die, PGG has you covered!
