Heavy Rain Finally Releases on PC After Nearly a Decade

It has been a very long wait but PC gamers are finally be able to play Quantic Dreams’ Heavy Rain, a choice-driven thriller from the mind of David Cage. The original released all the way back in February 2010 on the PS3 and again on the PS4 later, but it never came to PC, until now.

Heavy Rain’s PC version comes with 4K support, 60FPS, widescreen support and many more optimizations. It is one of those games you either love or hate, but I still have fond memories of the experience even if the controls left a lot to be desired back in the day.

PC gamers can pick up Heavy Rain from the Epic Games Store for $11.99 which is roughly R172 for South Africans. However, you can first download a free demo on PC if you want to check it out before opening your wallet. For those who don’t know, this is just the first of Quantic Dreams’ titles coming to PC, with Beyond: Two Souls releasing on 27 June, while Detroit: Become Human will release in “late Summer” which is late Winter, around July/August here in South Africa.

For those who have no clue what Heavy Rain is all about, check out the description below:

[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#33fff0″ class=”” size=”22″] Play four different characters in this tension-soaked psychological thriller. Choose your next move carefully, as every decision may have dramatic outcomes. Spanning four days of mystery and suspense, the hunt is on for a murderer known only as “The Origami Killer” – named after his macabre calling card of leaving behind folded paper shapes at crime scenes.

Each of the four characters follows their own leads, with their own motives. Directing their very actions, you have to prevent the killer from claiming a new victim. How this story ends is entirely up to you… [/perfectpullquote]

Having played through the game twice myself, I can attest that it is well worth giving a shot, even if you just try the free demo.
