Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that “Returnal,” the latest PlayStation exclusive game, will be getting a PC port and will be released on February 15th. This news has been met with excitement from fans of the game who have been eagerly awaiting a chance to play it on PC.
In addition to the release date, a trailer for the PC version has been released, showcasing the added support for ray-traced reflections, resolutions with Ultrawide at 21:9 and Super Ultrawide 32:9 aspect ratios, and assorted NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR capabilities. These new features will enhance the gaming experience and provide players with even more immersive gameplay.
NVIDIA NIS has also been added for those players who want to see an increase in performance but don’t have the hardware to support DLSS or FSR. The specs suggest at least an RTX 2070 is recommended for play, making sure that players have the best possible experience when playing the game.
Climax Studios, known for their work on “Silent Hill: Origins” and “Silent Hill: Shattered Memories,” is behind the port which also boasts Dolby Atmos, two 3D audio solutions, or 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound. This will give players an even more immersive experience when it comes to audio and will make them feel like they are right in the middle of the action.
The game supports customisable keyboard and mouse controls, but let’s face it, the best experience is with a DualSense controller with full haptic feedback and adaptive triggers which is available for PC. This will give players an even more immersive experience.
Housemarque released the title for PlayStation 5 in April 2021, its largest and most ambitious title to date. The story follows an astronaut who lands on the planet Atropos in search of the mysterious ‘White Shadow’ signal and finds herself trapped in a time loop. The game was widely praised and pulled in a very good 86/100 on Metacritic.
The port comes in the wake of multiple PS5-to-PC ports last year including both “Spider-Man” games, “God of War,” “Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves” collection, and “Sackboy: A Big Adventure.” This trend of PlayStation exclusives being ported to PC is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s clear that fans are excited to see more of their favourite games on PC.
Overall, the release of “Returnal” on PC is highly anticipated by fans of the game, and it’s expected to be a hit with players on both PlayStation 5 and PC. With the added support for ray-traced reflections, resolutions with Ultrawide at 21:9 and Super Ultrawide 32:9 aspect ratios, and assorted NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR capabilities, players can expect an even more immersive gaming experience. The release date of February 15th is quickly approaching, and players can’t wait to get their hands on the game and start playing.
