What are the Returnal system requirements? Adding to the number of PlayStation 5 console exclusives making their way to PC, Returnal joins the rest of its Sony brethren. While the roguelike game can be a stressful experience to play, you probably needn’t worry about having the hardware necessary to run it.
The Returnal minimum specs include the ever-popular Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060, with the AMD Radeon RX 580 filling in for team red. On the surface, you don’t need the best graphics card in order to play the former PS5 exclusive but these GPUs are only good for 60fps gameplay at 720p using the ‘Low’ preset.
Here are the Returnal system requirements:
|OS||Windows 10 64-bit||Windows 10 64-bit|
|CPU||Intel Core i5 6400
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X
|Intel Core i7 8700
AMD Ryzen 7 2700X
|GPU||Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
AMD Radeon RX 580
|Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT
Your system better have 16GB of RAM in it, regardless of whether you’re targetting the Returnal recommended specs or not. Developers Housemarque and Climax Studios also suggest that you use a gaming CPU with at least six cores in combination with a more powerful GPU to play the game at 1080p at 60 frames per second, using ‘High’ settings.
With a 60GB footprint, the Returnal size isn’t abnormally large. That said, it’s strongly recommended that you install the game on the best SSD you have to hand.
