Fans conjecture a new PC release since the artwork carrying the text banner that read “ only on PlayStation ” earlier has been removed. The new box art is available on the official PlayStation Direct store and on the game’s Amazon listing. The tagline was also removed from the packaging for Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn, both of which were ported to the PC.
The speculation and excitement make sense, though. Sony recently committed to releasing more games on PC in the future. Not long ago, no one would even consider the possibility that Sony was hinting at a PC release from one of its first-party studios. These days, however, anything is on the table for a PC version at some point. The dropping of the ‘Only on PlayStation’ badge shouldn’t be taken too seriously, but it is a small reminder that the gloves are completely off when it comes to what games we can play on which box. If you missed when Sony stated its intentions on bringing more PlayStation exclusives to the PC, here’s what Sony had to say on this a while back, ” Particularly from the latter half of the PS4 cycle our studios made some wonderful, great games. There’s an opportunity to expose those great games to a wider audience and recognise the economics of game development, which are not always straightforward. “
The speculations become more clear when we go back to the time we found out Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone were going to be coming to PC. The PlayStation only label was removed from the box art on Amazon.
Since all of us know that Ghost of Tsushima doesn’t have the exclusivity badge anymore, that doesn’t make its PC release any more likely than Ratchet and Clank, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, or all the other PlayStation exclusives PC gamers want to play. All of this speculation stemmed from a single Reddit thread posted to r/GamingLeaksAndRumours that pointed out the box art change on both Amazon and Sony’s official websites.
As for the Bloodborne legend, new details about the heavily rumoured PS5 version recently surfaced online. Bloodborne Remastered is said to have a late 2021 release date on PS5, followed by an eventual PC release further down the line. The remaster will reportedly feature four thousand visuals, as well as support for 60 frames-per-second gameplay. The belief is that the Bloodborne remaster won’t be developed by FromSoftware or Bluepoint Games. However, it is said to contain additional content, perhaps in the form of cut content such as unused bosses and enemies. The original Bloodborne launched in 2015 and is easily one of the best games of all time. It has, however, been criticised for lacking 60 frames-per-second support, especially in light of the launch of the PlayStation 5 and PS4 Pro. ” Hunt your nightmares,” reads the official Bloodborne description. “A lone traveller. A cursed town. A deadly mystery that swallows everything it touches. Face your fears as you enter the decaying city of Yharnam, a forsaken place ravaged by a terrible, all-consuming illness. ” The game is developed by Dark Souls studio FromSoftware, which is currently working on open-world action game Elden Ring.
Ghost of Tsushima, meanwhile, is set in the aftermath of the Mongol invasion of the island of Tsushima. “As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai resolves to do whatever it takes to protect his people and reclaim his home.”
