Returnal continues the cycle on PC in February



Sony and Housemark have confirmed the release date for the PC port of PS5’s classic shooter, Returnal. Long rumored but finally announced late last year, the PC version of the game will release on February 15, 2023.

The date comes from the video above, which also goes over some of the PC-specific bells and whistles the game will employ. For example, support for NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR will allow you to increase the frame rate without compromising resolution. Additionally, ray tracing capabilities have been enhanced; On the PS5, ray tracing was used to create realistic lighting and shadows, but on PC, it will push fully ray-traced reflections. The PC version also supports Dolby Atmos for its 3D audio. Topping it all off is support for ultra-wide formats like 21:9 and 32:9.

With all that said, the final PC specs for Returnal have been revealed, and they go against reports of unusually high RAM requirements. Here they are:
