The internet is full of baseless rumors and leaks, but the new screenshots from Returnal and Sackboy: A Big Adventure that appear to run on PC are very convincing and, if fake, impressive in their own right.
A reddit user named EmpressOfSony loaded a series of screenshots showing the in-game menus for Returnal and Sackboy, highlighting the PC graphics options and control schemes for each. As per the screenshots, Returnal will allow PC users to control the maximum frame rate (which can be unlocked) as well as other settings like shadow quality, ray-traced shadows and reflections, and lighting.
Here are the screenshots:

Returnal is almost certainly coming to PC anyway, leaks or not. A Steam list dated May 26 anything but confirmed (opens in new tab) a PC port, albeit cryptically, and Returnal for PC appeared in that Nvidia GeForce leak.
As for Sackboy, he also appeared on Nvidia’s list, and it seems like an absolute certainty for the PC treatment since it’s not Bloodborne, and that’s what everyone wants. Even people who think they don’t want Bloodborne on PC secretly, deep down, do.
Many expected Sony to announce Returnal for PC during today’s State of Play live stream, but instead we received remastered spidermancoming to Steam on August 12th. It will join the list of other recent Sony ports, including Horizon Zero Dawn, God of War and Days Gone.
