Cococucumber just rolled out a fresh patch for Echo Generation. The quality of life update will do away with the players' money woes and give a couple of helpful gameplay hints.

Echo Generation has a brand new quality of life update now live on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. The folks at Cococucumber have deployed some gameplay fixes on top of increased opportunities to make money from slaying monsters (that now also respawn) and more.

Echo Generation Patch 1 Notes (build v1.105a)

New Features

Free Roam after Credit Roll 

A welcome quality of life improvement is the option to go back and forage for achievements after Echo Generation's credits start to roll.  Pressing ‘Continue’ or loading a completed save file in the Main Menu will bring you back to the inventor’s garage before entering the portal and you can start your free-roaming for achievements right then and there.

Quests

The devs have added a hint that will help the players access the door of the landed spaceship. They've also added a clue about the Alien Painting and what to do with it once you get to the lab.
