Returnal, the exclusive PS5 game will arrive on PC via Steam

According to a Steam listing discovered yesterday by a video game leaker @NibellionSony gon’ pull it up now PS5 exclusive video game, Returnal, for PC. Although the name is not mentioned directly in the listing, it refers to the “sisyphus tower“, which is really a recently implemented game mode in a free downloadable content of this game.

This is great news for the PC community because, on the one hand, this game was part of the massive filtration what about Geforce now, giving us a chance that others on this list will also come to PC. On the other hand, it is a game that has received very good reviews on platforms such as Metacritic, currently with a Metascore 86/100 and already a lower user score of 73/100.

Returnal won the 2022 BAFTA Awards

PS5 Port PC Return

return is a third-person shooter game developed by Finnish studio Housemarque. It takes place on an alien planet called Atropos, where the protagonist, Selene, is unable to die permanently. With this synopsis, the game combines elements of the genre roguelike (because with each death you resurrect and start again), with touches of horror psychological because of the Lovecraftian story and scenarios and, to that, we would add a fight typical of a bullet hell.

The game went on sale for PS5 on April 30, 2021 and just 2 months later, Housemarque, the company that created it, was acquired by PlayStation. Although Returnal did not achieve the sales of the popular triple AAA, it sold out 560,000 copies 3 months laterin July 2021. In addition, he triumphed in the 18th edition of the BAFTA Games Price; become most awarded game of this show.

However, not everything would be so pretty and we don’t know when this port will be released for PC. Considering the history of ports exclusive games the previous generation:

  • God of War was released on PS4 in April 2018 and the PC port was in January 2022.
  • Days Gone was released in April 2019 on PS4 and arrived in May 2021 on PC.
  • Horizon Zero Dawn launched in February 2017 on PS4 and arrived in August 2020 on PC.
  • Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection has been on PS4 since 2016/2017 and on PC we assume it will be released on June 20, 2022.

The first PS5 ported game on PC

This leaves us a time between 2 to 4 years old (removing the Uncharted case) for the transition from PC-exclusive PlayStation 4. In the case of Returnal, we know that it has been out for a little over a year, so we can say that it is relatively early to say a date. However, in a recent presentation to investors; jim ryanSony Interactive Entertainment CEO says the company is trying to expand your presence in PC games and smartphones.

If my memory serves me right, that would be the first port of a game exclusive to ps5 for pcthat in the event that Ryan’s words are fulfilled, we may enjoy a larger catalog of PS5 exclusives on PC in the future.
