Returnal PC System Requirements Officially Revealed

You might want to upgrade your hardware.


Housemarque has finally revealed the Returnal PC system requirements officially after several leaks in previous months.

After it was confirmed officially on The Game Awards 2022 that Returnal was coming on PC, players were worried about the Returnal PC system requirements. The game looked very visually demanding on PS5 with high-end visuals and very fast frame rates so this meant the hardware will have to be top-of-the-line. Turns out to be true, as the official list looks pretty steep.

The processor alone needs to be the sixth generation at least with 2.7GHz processing power. The RAM needs to be at least 16GB and storage is quite large for the game.
