Even though you are on Atropos, an alien planet, you will find things you can relate to. Like a 20th century house that you can find on your run. In this Returnal guide, I will discuss where to find the house and how to unlock it so you can go inside.
How To Unlock The House In Returnal
As you explore the world of Atropos in Returnal, you will soon come upon a house that one can find between two combat zones. Finding the house is relatively easy, so you do not have to worry about it. Once reaching the house, you will see that you can not enter the house. You will have to leave this area for now as you will need the key to open the house. There is a Translocator here, so you do not have to worry about getting back here. You can just teleport later.
Getting the key for the house is not that easy as the location is random. On top of that, every time you die, the world resets, making it more difficult. There is one way, though, but it depends on your luck how quickly you find it. On your main path to White Shadow, a side path might take you to the key. Try to explore every room to the fullest to have more of a chance of getting the key.
Entering the House
After acquiring the key, use the teleporter to get back to the house, and you will find the house unlocked. Inside you will be hit by a flashback, and after the sequence, you can get the Astronaut Figurine. Finding the key and getting the figurine is worth it.
This is how you can unlock the house and go inside. If you are interested in learning more then you can check out our guide on how you can break energy barriers in the game.
