How to get into the house

The house is one of the most mysterious parts of Returnal, but it is locked when you first see it in the Biome of Overgrown Ruins. You stumble upon the house very early in Returnal, but you won’t be able to get in until you’ve made decent progress in the game. Well worth the wait though, as Returnal’s story will really be picked up once you find your way in. The house gives you a break from the hustle and bustle of the game and gives you a chance to get to know Selene better. Here’s how to get into the 20th century house in Returnal.

How to get into the house in return

To get into the house, you need to find the house key. You won’t be able to find it until you defeat the first boss, Phrike, and reach the Crimson Waste biome. After reaching the second biome, the house key will appear on your next run.

In particular, the next time the house key appears, it will be hidden near the house. The next time you see the house, investigate the area to find the key. It will be on the floor and marked with a glowing blue light, just like most of the other items in the game. Once you have the key you can go to the front door and enter the house.

Fortunately, the key is a permanent item so if you die you won’t lose it. After receiving the house key, you will have constant access to the house anytime you come across it. There are many puzzles to solve when playing Returnal and the house is at the center of the story. Make sure to type it in every time it appears and look inside to see if there’s a new cutscene or dialogue.
