Sony and Housemarque have confirmed the release date for the PC port of PS5's excellent shooter, Returnal. Long-rumoured but finally announced at the end of last year, the PC version of the game will release on 15th February, 2023.

The date comes from the above video, which also goes over some of the PC-specific bells and whistles the game will employ. For instance, support for NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR will allow you to enhance the frame rate without compromising resolution. Additionally, the ray tracing capabilities have been enhanced; on PS5, ray tracing was used to create realistic lighting and shadows, but on PC, this will go further will full 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.

As well as all that, the final PC specs for Returnal have been revealed, and they go against the reports about unusually high RAM requirements. Here they are:
