That’s right! PlayStation’s iconic woolly hero is coming to PC! We are so excited that a whole new audience of players will have the opportunity to join Sackboy on his great adventure.
Today, we’re excited to be able to reveal details about the new features and improvements you can look forward to when the game launches on October 27th. There is also great pre-purchase content available, see below for more details!
The first thing to call out is the new images. We wanted this game to be visually stunning on PC, so with that goal in mind here are some of the new graphics features we’ve added to make the most of your hardware:
· 4K with target @ 120FPS1. Craftworld’s amazing mix is presented in beautiful 4K detail.
· Deep Learning Over Sampling. NVIDIA DLSS2 boosts graphics performance with dedicated processors found only on GeForce RTX GPUs, increasing frame rates with uncompromised image quality.
· VRR. Variable refresh rate makes Sackboy more responsive than ever.2
- Wide screen! The game supports a wide range of screen ratios, including ultrawide 21:9.3
While we’ve added all of these new graphics features for gamers with high-end machines, we’ve also worked hard to ensure that a range of different hardware is supported. Here are the details of the minimum and recommended specifications:

In addition to these great visual features, we’ve also added a lot of peripherals and customization options. Full support for the DualSense controller increases immersion with haptic feedback and dynamic trigger effects.4 For those who prefer a 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.
So that’s a taste of the cool new improvements we’ve added to the PC version. We’re also excited to announce that if you pre-purchase the game on Steam or the Epic Games Store before its release on October 27th, you’ll have access to four special PlayStation skins and emotes to customize your Sackboy with:
- Sam Porter Bridges
- 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 your friends.
We can’t wait for you to get your hands on Sackboy: Big Adventure when it releases on PC on October 27th.
