Dead Rising 3 Confirmed for PC – 64bit only


Capcom is gearing up for another PC release this summer. This time we can expect Dead Rising 3 to push our rigs to their limits.

The critically acclaimed Xbox One exclusive launch title Dead Rising® 3 will be available for PC digital download on Steam globally and a retail version for Windows PC in Europe in Summer 2014. PC gamers will be able to experience the hordes of horror at high PC resolutions with 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.

The third title in the Dead Rising series with sales of over 1 million units to date, Dead Rising 3 takes place 10 years after the events of Dead Rising 2. Set in the city of Los Perdidos amidst a nationwide zombie outbreak, the story follows Nick Ramos, a young mechanic. He must find a way to escape from thousands of blood thirsty zombies before an impending military strike wipes out the city and its population. Relying on the help of other survivors he meets along the way and the vast array of unique and powerful combo weapons available, Nick will need to get creative to get out of the infected city before it’s too late.

Welcome to Los Perdidos – Set 10 years after the events in Fortune City players are taken to the massive open and infected world of Los Perdidos while being immersed in action and stunning visuals.
All the survival horror action comes to PC – Fully optimized to run at a high resolution, the PC release includes full Steam and game controller support.

Yes, games are getting a tad more heavy on the RAM requirements. It seems that 6-8GB of system RAM will be the norm for newer games. The VRAM seems to also be a bit heavy to max out the game with a 2GB requirement, but it isn’t as bad when compared to Watch Dogs, which requires 3GB of RAM for Ultra textures. Furthermore, Dead Rising 3 also requires a 64bit OS with a DX11 capable GPU.
