Returnal is the third-person futuristic shooter game that’s coming to PC soon enough. Housemarque and Climax Studios collaborate to get the game done for those who prefer their gaming on Windows computers, and things are already looking spicy if we check out the trailer.
Returnal was initially just a game for PlayStation 5 consoles when it came out back in April 2021. Thanks to wccftech, we can already have a look at the system requirements. We must say right from the start that it’s mandatory to have a powerful gaming rig if you want to play Returnal for PC with advanced graphics.
The devs recommend 32GB of RAM
Perhaps you haven’t heard until now about a game that demands 32GB of RAM in order to run on PCs, but everything has a beginning in life. However, that’s only the recommended amount of RAM memory, as you will also have the chance to run the game on Windows-based computers that have 16GB of RAM if you can be satisfied with the minimum settings for the graphics area.
The rest of the recommended configuration for those who want to play Returnal on PC is also pretty bulky. You’ll also need to have an Intel i7-8700 (6 core 3.7 GHz) chipset or an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X (8 core 3.7 GHz). The GPU is also not to be neglected at all, as the recommended graphics cards are NVIDIA RTX 2070 SUPER (8 GB) and AMD RX 6700 XT (12 GB).
As for the minimum configuration besides the RAM part, you’ll need to have at least a processor such as the Intel Core i5-6400 (4 core 2.7GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1500X (4 core 3.5GHz) and a GPU like NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 580 (8 GB).
Keeping Returnal installed on a PC will also require 60GB of storage space, and there’s no chance of running the game if you still use Windows 7. Returnal is only compatible with Windows 10 and Windows 11.
