Binary Domain hitting PC in April

Sega bringing squad-based third-person shooter to Windows computers next month at retail and through download channels.

Binary Domain is coming to the PC. Sega today announced that the squad-based third-person shooter, which shipped for consoles last month, will arrive for Windows machines in April.

This is his "hooray for PC version!" face.

In a statement, Sega senior vice president of marketing Gary Knight said, "We were seeing increasing numbers of players asking for a PC version. So we listened and delivered."

Binary Domain will arrive for the PC as a boxed product at retail, as well as through digital channels. Sega did not provide a specific release date for the PC, but a listing for the game on Valve's digital distribution hub Steam indicates the title will launch on April 6 for $40.

Binary Domain was released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 28 to mostly positive review scores. It is set in Tokyo in the year 2080, a time when humans are locked in battle with robots. The game is the latest project from Toshihiro Nagoshi, who is best known for his work on the Yakuza and Super Monkey Ball franchises.

This is one great game. I gave it 9/10 evaluation. I`d like to see a description of the keys for I often lose control just because I need to seek some keys on my PC keyboard.

@pszone dafuq did I just read? WTF did you say there? Assians Creed? WTF!? Are you sure you didn't mean Asians Creed? WTF is Asians Creed? or Assians Creed? And really? Do you really think GS gives a sh*t about what you wrote there? First of all your language is crap and unreadable... Second they don't care... Third your opinion doesn't matter...developers don't really give a sh*t about that either... Dude don't get me wrong but that's the worst comment I've read on this site...And to ge honest I made an effort to understand what you said... Also you repeated "in my opinion" a hundred times...wait what?...lol you actually said "in my option"...and no one cares about your opinion... But the game looks great...can't wait for it...

It's fun. Very hectic action and plays a little more intelligently than most shooters. Too bad it's not getting the attention it deserves, but ME3 did just come out.

They should have announced this earlier so I wouldn't have to buy the PS3 version. Now I gotta trade in the game and beat it normally, with good controls and without auto-aim. And its funny that Steam sells is for $ 40.00 while I had to pay $ 65 at gamestop

Well it's nice to see the game is getting a PC port but i never was all that much intrested in Binary Domain, i'm still waiting for Dark Souls to get ported onto PC. Then I'll be happy.

I cant wait for more Binary Domain games to be released! Its such a rewarding game to play! And i hope that the Yakuza team uses this engine on further Yakuza games. I was thinking just how awesome "Yakuza: Dead Souls" would have been if it had this engine!!!!! Congrats Sega keep up the good work!
