PlayStation and developer Housmarque have confirmed the release date and PC system requirements for Returnal.

The PC version of Housemarque’s roguelike shooter, Returnal, has a release date set for later this year on February 15, 2023, and comprehensive system requirements for the platform are now available. It will bring a number of enhancements specific to the platform, including NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR support, allowing players to dial up the framerate without compromising on resolution. NVIDIA NIS has also been added for players who want to see an increase in performance, but don’t have the hardware to support DLSS or FSR.
