A recently leaked video of Returnal reveals its in-game PC settings menu
A PlayStation-exclusive video game that was rumored to be coming to PC was revealed a few days ago to be getting the PC treatment. Images of the game’s PC settings appear to have been leaked, suggesting that Returnal will launch on PC not long after the release of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which is scheduled for this autumn. However, this is not the only piece of information that was stolen from the Returnal PC game.
There was also a video that was released that showed the PC settings for Returnal. It showcased a variety of choices, such as shadow quality, resolution scaling, ray tracing using DLSS, and FSR capability. In the video, the player can be seen navigating downward via what seems to be a PC interface complete with a graphics-style menu.
The fact that the game’s PC controls are being demonstrated in the video is reinforced by the presence of keyboard button glyphs in the area of the menu that is located at the very top. However, Sony decided to remove the video since it violated their copyright, and as a result, it is not now accessible anywhere.
Sony has not yet confirmed that a PC version of Returnal will be released and has not made any statements to that effect. The fact that Sony appears to have removed the video on the grounds of copyright suggests that they are making an effort to conceal this information.
It should come as no surprise that more exclusives are finding their way to PC since PlayStation president Jim Ryan stated in May at a business briefing that Sony wants 50% of its annual releases to be on PC and mobile by the year 2021.
Regarding the Going Back
Video game studio Housemarque is responsible for the creation of the third-person shooter roguelike game Returnal, while Sony Interactive Entertainment is the game’s publisher. On April 30th, 2021, it was made available for the PlayStation 5 platform.
The protagonist of the game is an astronaut by the name of Selene Vassos. She is visiting the planet Atropos in quest of a signal known only as “White Shadow,” but instead she finds herself caught in a never-ending time loop.
