For its PC release, Sega has updated Sonic: Lost World to support a frame rate of 60fps, while players can also look forward to better graphics overall (see the system requirements below). The game also supports mouse and keyboard or gameplay controls, as well as full Steam functionality, including Steam achievements, leaderboards, and cloud support.

The game's system requirements are printed below.
