Housemarque’s Returnal has a release date on PC, and various exclusive features like ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS support, Ultrawide display support, and more have been confirmed. Updated PC requirements are also available and put a few things into perspective. Instead of 32 GB of DDR4 RAM to run the game in Recommended settings, you’ll only need 16 GB.

If you do have 32 GB of RAM, an Intel Core i7-9700K (3.7 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 3700X (3.6 GHz), and a GeForce RTX 3080 (10 GB) or Radeon RX 6800 XT (16 GB), you can run Returnal in Epic settings at 4K/60 FPS. But wait, there’s more. An Intel Core i9-11900K (eight-core, 3.5 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (12 core, 3.7 GHz) with 32 GB DDR4 RAM and an RTX 3080 Ti (12 GB) or Radeon RX 6950 XT (16 GB) can run the game in 4K/60 FPS, Epic settings, with ray tracing enabled. Enabling Nvidia DLSS is recommended, though.

Settings for Minimum (720p/30 FPS at Low quality), Medium (1080p/60 FPS at Medium quality), and Recommended (1080p/60 FPS at High quality) can be seen below. Returnal launches on February 15 for PC.
