Returnal will be launching exclusively on PS5 when it releases on April 30th.

In recent years we have seen some PlayStation exclusives start to make their way over to PC, including Horizon Zero Dawn and Detroit: Become Human.

This follows on from Microsoft putting a bigger focus on PC with Game Pass for PC as well as many top Xbox games releasing on Steam including Halo, Forza, Sea of Thieves and more.

About Returnal

Here is some information on the game if you're unsure what it is about.

"After crash-landing on this shape-shifting world, Selene must search through the barren landscape of an ancient civilization for her escape. Isolated and alone, she finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again, she’s defeated – forced to restart her journey every time she dies.

Through relentless roguelike gameplay, you’ll discover that just as the planet changes with every cycle, so do the items at your disposal. Every loop offers new combinations, forcing you to push your boundaries and approach combat with a different strategy each time.

Brought to life by stunning visual effects, the dark beauty of the decaying world around you is packed with explosive surprises. From high stakes, bullet hell-fuelled combat, to visceral twists and turns through stark and contrasting environments. You’ll explore, discover and fight your way through an unforgiving journey, where mystery stalks your every move.

Designed for extreme replayability, the procedural world of Returnal invites you to dust yourself off in the face of defeat and take on new, evolving challenges with every rebirth."
