Good news for fans of a mom you'd see at the Asda checkout. The massive, massive flop nobody cared about, is coming to PC.

Are you excited? Are you hoping up and down like an excited Japanese girl making so-kiwi signs? Has this changed your life?

Bla bla?

Looks like PS5 exclusive Returnal is headed to PC

Let's do the time warp again.

It looks like PS5 exclusive Returnal may be heading to PC.

Details for Housemarque's BAFTA winning sci-fi roguelike have been spotted on SteamDB, including references to its Tower of Sisyphus DLC, Selene's ship Helios, and the alien planet of Atropos.

Returnal would follow the likes of God of War earlier this year, as well as Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn as previous console exclusives arriving on PC.

Indeed, as stated in yesterday's investors presentation by exec Jim Ryan, Sony expects to make $300m on PC games this year.

Looks like Returnal could be next to add to that figure. After all, Housemarque is now a first party studio.

There's no further information, or a release date. One big question: how will the PS5's DualSense features transfer over?

Returnal will also be available on Sony's PS Plus subscription service - it's the most recent PS5 exclusive, except the Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut.

Housemarque boss Ilari Kuittinen told Eurogamer he hopes the game will reach a new audience on PS Plus.

I am glad that I waited for the PC version to take advantage of better hardware. BTW, you can have full Dual Sense support on PC. Try out Metro Exodus as an example. Using a controller on PC for an FPS game though... yuck!

No idea what your subject line says. But Returnal coming to Microsoft Windows PC is a good thing for gamers.

Nice. I’ve held off more and more titles on Playstation as the years progress to rather just wait for them to release on PC

Ghost of Tsushima next 😁

Checking my odds board...

10% for Round 4, way off on the announcement date (December 2021), but overall at 50%.

Housemarque already released some (but with no regularity) of their games on PC, so I called it a coin flip, but my round prediction was significantly off. To be fair, I expected Round 4 to be announced much sooner. Had I been looking for a May or June announcement, I would have placed it higher for that round.

Anyway, interested enough to probably pick it up. I eat up this sci-fi mystery stuff.

Risk of Rain 2 is the suggestion... really.

Curious to see what Returnal is all about ... and why Sony fans rejected it.

Not my kind of game because I'm a dirty filthy casual, but I am happy for the sadists that somehow manage to find satisfaction from constantly failing at the same task until they finally get it right.

I'll just stick to having 60 year old women in leather put cigarettes out on my chest. Seems more enjoyable.

That would be quite hard to do. It's already 1080p on PS5, on SteamDeck...may be able to do something with 30FPS but yikes. The experience will be significantly compromised.

Not an exclusive anymore therefor not worth playing and not even a game worthy of being called such, thus PlayStation has no games. Not my logic, that's their logic they and the gaming world evangelized for the last decade.

Oh I jest. But they should put their games on PC, but knowing Sony's strategy and the fanboy reaction they'll likely treat a re-release on PC as if it were another award winning Sony release to put another notch on their belt with.

It impacts their fanboy agenda. They can no longer claim it as an exclusive. They would rather not share it with others and play it on inferior hardware than have others enjoy the game on superior hardware.

@x_hedon: OK... and I'm thankful that I don't need to buy a PS5 to play it. I'm happy to give Sony and the developers the money. 🤷‍♂️This is a really weird conversation... It's like literally how every monetary transaction works since forever.

That's cool. One of the two current PS5 games I'm interested in, will scoop.

Probably be good for Housemarque as well, imagine this will be well received with the PC crowd.

I have been calling it an Indie game way before it was even released. Its an Indie+ kind of a game, and its not "cheap", so it ain't in your standard PC indies category.

@uninspiredcup: the cows have been taking a beating recently. First the belden ring news tanking hard after only 3 months, the xbox series S beating the ps5 in sales in japan, the sony announcecment of ps5 shifting away from exclusives, going more live service and now this news of returnal being one of those games going to pc. Soon sony will be jumping on the NFT bandwagon.

@davillain: "Another victory for the Nvidia GeForce leak which predicts Returnal is coming to PC that leak was more accurate."

I mean when that happened it was already clear Sony intended to move to releasing games on PC, they were already releasing third 1st party games on PC and acquiring more studios for this purpose. If the leak was a fabrication it would at least be in the interest of those trying to pass it off as potentially valid to include some high probable unannounced projects. And that seems what that list mostly looked like, a list of potential sequels and remasters and ports that wouldn't require a crystal ball or insider information to see coming.

And yet, none of these conditions have propelled the xsx/xss over the ps5 in sales and/or popularity. So how did any of this helped MS and the Xbox in any way, shape, or form?

So, your rebuttal to your false prediction is why are the titles released years before the shift in policy took years to arrive? But hey at least you're consistent with the excuses. I asked you what would be the excuse when it won't take long for the releases to come to PC. I got the answer now.

BTW, Returnal tanked in sales? Can swear I read a thread made by a cow quoting Ryan that Returnal was a huge success. So which is it, a success or a failure?

But hey, that's what I enjoy your tears, bu*thurt and constant flip-flopping.
