Dead Rising 3 coming to PC this summer

“Yes, the million-selling zombie slay-fest Dead Rising 3 is coming to PC,” Capcom announced earlier. Naturally, no announcement is complete without a brand new trailer and the company seems to be aware of this fact. There were rumors about this yesterday when the game was apparently spotted on Steam. Now we have confirmation from the developers themselves, along with a “summer” release window. No exact date has been mentioned, but at least we have something to look forward to now. Dead Rising 3 was first announced at E3 2013 as an Xbox One exclusive title. Now, almost a year later we find out that the survival horror game will finally grace the PC as well.  Judging by the description, Capcom included a few graphical improvements and Steam-related goodies with this version.

“PC gamers will be able to experience the hordes of horror at high PC resolutions with fully optimized visuals for the wide screen, upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects. Dead Rising 3 for PC will include Steam platform support with Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards and full game controller support. Also compatible with the keyboard and mouse, players will be able to toggle back and forth between the two in real time.” As you might expect, “improved visuals” usually means that you will require a decent machine to run it. Recommended system requirements include Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz, Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 2GB, 8 GB of RAM and 30 GB disk space.

We’ve mentioned how Dead Rising 3 briefly appeared on Steam yesterday. Well, it’s back up again and this time it’s here to stay. Sadly there’s nothing interesting to see here, except a description for the game. “Anything and everything is a weapon in Dead Rising 3. Explore the zombie-infested city of Los Perdidos, and find a way to escape before a military strike wipes the entire city, and everyone in it, off the map. With intense action and an unmatched level of weapon and character customization, Dead Rising 3 delivers a heart-pounding experience unlike any other as you explore, scavenge and fight to survive in a massive open world on the brink of a zombie apocalypse.” We assume the Steam page will be updated with pre-order offers as soon as they will be announced.

Given that Dead Rising 3 is now on Steam, I expect we’ll see some community generated content soon after it’s release. Stay tuned for all the latest news and updates.
