Sony Interactive Entertainment Australia is pleased to announce that PlayStation’s iconic woollen hero Sackboy is heading to PC. Sackboy: A Big Adventure, releases on Thursday, 27 October and contains a mass of new features and enhancements that players enjoy.

Check out the epic trailer here.

The first thing to call out is the new visuals. New graphical features have been added to make the most of the hardware and deliver a visually stunning experience for PC:

  • 4K with target @ 120FPS1. The stunning patchwork of Craftworld is rendered in beautiful 4K detail.
  • Deep Learning Super Sampling. NVIDIA DLSS2 increases graphics performance using dedicated processors found only on GeForce RTX GPUs, boosting frame rates with uncompromised image quality.
  • VRR. Variable refresh rate support makes Sackboy more responsive than ever.2
  • Wide screen! The game supports a wide range of display ratios, including ultrawide 21:9.3

Here are the details of the minimum and recommended specs for the range or hardware that is supported:

On top of these great visual features, several peripheral and customisation options have been added. Full support for the DualSense controller heightens the immersion through haptic feedback and dynamic trigger effects.4 For those who prefer mouse and keyboard there is support for both during gameplay and in the UI. The game also supports achievements and cloud saves on both Steam and the Epic Game Store.

In addition, if you pre-purchase the game on Steam or the Epic Games Store ahead of its release on Thursday, 27 October players will get access to four special PlayStation icon costumes and emotes with which to customise their Sackboy:

  • Jin
  • Sam Porter Bridges
  • Connor
  • Deacon St. John

One final note, the game is great in single player, however when played in co-op a whole new level of chaotic multiplayer fun ensues! So make sure you share the experience with friends.
