Issues unresolved[edit]

Game instability[edit]

The game can be reportedly quite unstable. Unusual framerate drops and crashes seem to occur regardless of whether the game runs using DX11 or DX12.[7][8][9]
No known workarounds.

Cannot travel back to previous world location after travelling to another[edit]

When travelling to a world location as part of a multi-location mission, sometimes the game will not let you travel back to where you last travelled from.[10][11]
Use the Holopox Deck to replay a previous mission[12][13]

Issues fixed[edit]

No way to place PK'd/Abduct-O-Beam'd objects for mission objectives[edit]

Both main and side mission objectives sometimes include a requirement to place, not throw, objects using either the main character or the saucer's psychokinesis or Abduct-O-Beam ability, respectively. However, because of how the mechanic is implemented and explained, it appears impossible to place objects.[14][15]
Press/tap the psychokinesis or Abduct-O-Beam button when playing as the main character or the saucer, respectively, instead of holding it.[14][16]

Notes:

The ability's beam will be colored differently based on whether the Psychokinesis or Abduct-O-Beam button was held or merely pressed. The beam will be blue if pressed, and red if held.
Once the appropriate button has been pressed, psychokinesis or the Abduct-O-Beam cannot be cancelled.
