Looks like we missed this being announced last week via Twitter, but Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture PC is being published by Sony on Steam tomorrow, April 14. The previously Playstation-exclusive has been in development for Windows since September, and the final build was handed off a couple of weeks back after finally being confirmed as in-dev after months of rumours. Now you’ll all get to play it tomorrow, with some exclusive features unique to the PC version.
For more along these lines, here’s the best indie games on PC.
The excellent wandering sim is all about the goings on of a small English town during some sort of mysterious, unexplained apocalypse that has left it completely deserted. It’s brilliantly executed in all the ways you’d expect, letting you discover both the personal stories of characters and the overall plot across a six-hour playtime in a non-linear, exploratory fashion. From a blog post last week, here’s what extras we’re getting on PC:
- Performance improvements and graphical options to make the game run on a wide variety of hardware at all sorts of silly resolutions. Yes, even that one you love.
- A wide variety of accessibility functions to prevent motion sickness, helping the hard of hearing not miss anything and support for the mobility-impaired.
- Controller support, plus keyboard and mouse, with remapping supported.
- Bugs squashed across the board.
It’s worth pointing out that the game was an absolute vista on PS4, one of the prettiest games I’ve ever played, so ramping it up on PC should be some incredible wallpaper fodder. Here’s the fairly lenient system requirements:
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7, 64-bit Windows 8 (8.1) or 64-bit Windows 10
- Processor: Intel Core i5-4570T 2.9 GHz / AMD FX-6100 3.3 GHz
- Memory: 4 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti / AMD Radeon HD 6850
- OS: 64-bit Windows 10
- Processor: Intel Core i7-4770S 3.1 GHz / AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 / AMD Radeon HD 7970
Quite excited to see what someone with a pair of SLI’d Titans makes it look like. Real life, I expect.
The Steam page is now up, revealing that it will launch at about 6pm UK time, 10am PST tomorrow. It’s also £15.99 / $19.99 / €19.99, as it is on the Playstation store.
