Dead Rising 3 officially announced for PC

Dead Rising 3 officially announced for PC

One of us. One of us.

This was all-but revealed last night, but has now made on PC official. Scheduled for release this summer on Steam and in mythical retail boxes (that’ll probably just have a Steam code in them,) we’ll be getting a version with improved textures, higher resolution options and mouse-keyboard support.

As it’s a Steam release, Steam cloud support, cards, achievements and all those things are promised as well.

Dead Rising 3 is a game about wearing ridiculous costumes, hitting zombies with makeshift weapons (like a deadly shotgun-loudspeaker made of traffic cones) and driving absurd vehicles around the infested open world city. The E3 PC announcement trailer below covers these areas pretty well.

The minimum PC specs look a little on the hefty side, but that’s possibly something we’ll have to get used to with these improved versions of so-called “next gen” games:

Minimum System Requirements:

OS: Windows 7 64-bit edition, Windows 8 64-bit edition
Processor: Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.30GHz (or Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz) / AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.00 GHz or higher
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 30 GB free
Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 570 / AMD Radeon 7870 or higher
DirectX: Version 11
Controller: Keyboard (international and standard), Mouse (up to 4 buttons), Xbox 360 PC compatible controller or compatible gamepad

Recommended System Requirements:

Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz or AMD equivalent Memory: 8 GB RAM
