Returnal PC System Requirements Detailed, No Cross-play Support With PS5

Returnal won’t support cross-play with the PS5 version while details on the PC system requirements were listed on the Steam page of the game.

Returnal was announced as coming to PC during The Game Awards 2022. While there is no release date for the PC version of Returnal, it is supposedly out rather soon, or before The Last of Us Part 1 PC port.

Steam has updated the page for Returnal providing an overview of the system requirements. It also confirmed that there is no cross-play support for the PC and PS5 versions. While Returnal is largely a single-player experience, a post-launch update added an arena mode called Tower of Sisyphus. Returnal allowed co-op multiplayer in a limited mode, but this won’t support cross-play between PS5 and PC.

Co-op Mode:
In Co-op Mode, share your journey through the shifting labyrinth of Atropos with another PC player.****
The hostile nature of Atropos will remain unwavering, but the possibility of teamwork adds a whole new dimension and means of survival.
Each player controls a different version of Selene, from different cycles. Using the Chronosis device located in each biome, the host player summons a friend or is matched with another random online player. The progress of the host determines the available item pool for the duration of the multiplayer session.

Tower of Sisyphus:
Next time you wake at the crash site, look up. You should be able to see a gate towards the Tower of Sisyphus, accessible as long as you’ve unlocked the Icarian Grapnel.****
In this Tower, prepare for a new kind of challenge. It’s a nearly endless ascending gauntlet with a pure focus on combat, how high you build up your score and progress, exclusive items, Scout logs and as-yet unseen fragments from Selene’s story.
**** The Tower of Sisyphus, House sequences and Challenge Mode are not available in Co-op Mode. Cross-play with players on PlayStation®5 consoles is not supported.
