Heavy Rain is available via the Epic Games store for $19.99. It comes ahead of re-releases for Quantic Dream’s most recent games, including Beyond: Two Souls and Detroit: Become Human, both of which are being optimized for PC as well. Heavy Rain will feature 4K resolution, widescreen compatibility, and 60 FPS, to name the most notable optimizations.

In Heavy Rain, players assume the roles of four different characters who are are trying to solve the mystery of the Origami Killer and prevent the murder of another victim. It cost Quantic Dream roughly $22 million to create and it brought in more than $127 million, so it makes sense that the studio continues to support the title nearly a decade later.
