Heavy Rain is now available on PC at the price of £15.99 / €19.90 / $19.99 through Epic Games Store. It used to be PlayStation 3/4 exclusive game that many would describe as an advanced interactive movie, written and directed by David Cage.

Quantic Dream's games are not exactly the place to go if you are looking for action or actually playing a game. Their most successful games, Heavy Rain and Detroit: Become Human are mostly interactive adventures filled with quick-time events (QTE) and focus on storytelling as opposed to gameplay.

Life is Strange or any Telltale game are probably what comes the closest for comparison. If this sounds like it is up your alley but haven't had the opportunity to give Heavy Rain a shot on account of it being a PlayStation exclusive, you are in luck.

Heavy Rain has been officially released on PC but another hitch may be in your way - it is an Epic Games Store exclusive. If you don't mind the EGS on top of liking this interactive storytelling genre, you can grab it at a fraction of a AAA title's price.

As per Quantic Dream's standard, players will assume control of multiple protagonists as they attempt to solve the mystery of the Origami Killer. The story features controversial decision making, themes and in-game behaviour which was always Quantic's niche.

Considering this will be a PC version, Quantic went all out with graphics options, making sure to get it in 4K with widescreen support in the process. The developers said it will run in 60 FPS but didn't specify if the game will be capped at that frame rate or unlocked for monitors that have a higher refresh rate.

There are another two Quantic Dream titles coming to PC after Heavy Rain. Beyond: Two Souls stars Ellen Page and is the game where Quantic controversially slapped her face on a nude body which prompted her to seek legal action. Detroit: Become Human didn't include any celebrities' fake nude scenes but it did have its share of controversy over depicting domestic abuse.
