Returnal originally launched on PlayStation 5 in 2021 and was, in part, a title meant to show off what the PS5 was capable of. The new PC edition supports Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR and comes with a variety of resolution settings. For minimum specs, players just need a GTX 1060. There’s also ultra and epic resolution settings that let you take advantage of powerful graphic cards like 3080Ti to get extremely detailed visuals.

In GameSpot’s Returnal review, reviewer Mike Epstein praised the game for innovative use of PS5 tech as well as tight gameplay elements that kept challenging randomized encounters feeling fresh.

“Returnal is constantly unsettling and consistently challenging. Its mysterious story and demanding action feel intense, urgent, and fresh,” Epstein wrote.
