Capcom has announced the official release date of the zombie action game Dead Rising 4 for PC on the Steam platform. Dead Rising 4 launched early December last year for Xbox One and Windows with a catch. For fans who hadn’t upgraded to Windows 10, or felt opposed to Microsoft UWP store platform, the game was out of reach.
Now, with Dead Rising 4 is coming to Steam, PC players will have a choice. In just a few weeks, on March 14th you can face the hordes of hungry zombies, returning as Frank West to Willamette, Colorado after the outbreak of a mysterious plague disturbs the local festivities.
The game received generally positive reviews with some minor complaints about technical hitch ups and fans criticism of gameplay inferiority compared to previous entries in the series. Ranging from discontent with the absence of the protagonists original voice actor, to a superfluous amount of health making the game too easy as well as complaints about a lacking choice of weapons and vehicles compared to the previous installments.
At launch Microsoft noted that on PC the game will remain a Windows 10 exclusive for 90 days post launch. On the console side PS4 gamers will need to quell their excitement for longer as Xbox One exclusivity deal will last a full year, expiring this December.
The Steam port comes out March 14th, roughly four months after the December 2016 launch. If you pre-order now you get it at 20% discount and receive the X-Fists Exo Suit Weapon as a pre-order bonus.
