The year 2023 is progressing and gradually bringing long-awaited games to the market. So there is finally the confirmation from Sony Interactive Entertainment that Returnal will finally be available for PC on Steam from February 15, 2023.
Returnal was already released on April 30, 2021 and originally appeared as a exclusive title on the Playstation 5. The new PC version does not yet offer many details on specific features. What we know so far is that NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR have been added for increased framerate.
In addition, raytracing shadows will also be supported in the PC version of Returnal, paired with RT reflections, which will highlight the contrast of a dark environment and neon balls even more than before. Therefore, it is recommended that you have at least an NVIDIA DLSS on your PC for an ultimate gaming experience. Your PC should also be fit enough for the other conditions of Returnal.
