PlayStation 5 third-person roguelike Returnal that's coming to PC

[Update]: It's official - Returnal will be launching onto PC this February 15th, 2023! It's also worth mentioning that the PC system requirements have been slightly adjusted. The most important thing to note is that you'll only need 16 GB or RAM for the recommended 1080p/60fps settings rather than the previously stated 32 GB.

If you're in the mood for blasting apart all sorts of bizarre alien creatures with a constantly shifting arsenal, you might be interested to hear that the PlayStation 5 exclusive third-person roguelike Returnal is heading over to PC. The exact release date has not been announced just yet, though you can expect to see it arrive in the near future.

Similarly the exact list of improvements has not been revealed, but given the teasers and the rather spicy system requirements I can only imagine the PC will be getting some sort of major upgrades. The biggest indicator here are the recommended settings as the developers are suggesting 32 GB of RAM, which is double the usual recommendation from even the biggest AAA games.

Speaking of which, allow me to share with you the actual PC system requirements, as well as a brief gameplay trailer showcasing just what Returnal has to offer. Have a look:
