The PC version of quirky murder-mystery game D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die will arrive on June 5. Director Hidetaka Suehiro, perhaps better known by his nickname, Swery, announced the news today on Twitter.

No Caption Provided

The new Windows version, which runs at 1080p/60fps, will be available for $15 through Steam, GOG, the Humble Store, and Playism.

D4 for PC features a range of changes from the Xbox One edition. First, Kinect controls have been removed entirely. What's more, it includes all previously released DLC, as well as a variety of bug fixes and PC-only graphics options.

A full list of changes, along with the system requirements, is available here.

Originally released in 2014 for Xbox One, D4 has seen more than 1.3 million lifetime downloads. This figure, however, includes copies downloaded when D4 was free in January for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers.

Although D4 is expanding to PC, the game is never coming to PlayStation 4, according to Swery.

D4 isn't the first game announced as an Xbox One exclusive to later be released for PC. Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome both made the jump to computers, while Killer Instinct might as well.

Upon D4's release last year, GameSpot gave the title a 7.0. Reviewer Kevin VanOrd praised its ridiculous story and atmosphere, while lamenting its stereotypical characters and several slow stretches that bogged down the pace.

For a free game it was enjoyable...I wouldn't pay $15 for it though. Being episodic in nature, the 2.5 chapter game felt more like an extended demo than a game. It really needs at least 3 more chapters. The chapters should have their own unique mini-games...not just more of the same. The thing that annoyed me the most was the fighting achievements. If you screw up the only way to replay was to restart the entire chapter and play it back to the fight scene.

What an interesting game!

Really dug the sense of humor, and it was deep at the same time!

It's almost like they're rubbing it in when they say a 1080p/60 version is releasing on PC, because the X1 isn't capable of it.


It's unnecessary to mention 1080p/60 on PC, because PCs can go beyond both 1080p and 60 fps. 1080p/60 is not a hard limit guys.


If it was releasing on PS4 at 1080p/60 it would be worth mentioning, though still clickbait.

@lostn: 1080p/60fps really won't add much of anything to the experience, either.

@lostn:

To say Xbox One can't do 1080P 60FPS is harmful straight attacking it's integrity, and very much untrue.

Very many of Xbox One's games are 1080P 60FPS I'm almost certain that D4 is one of them even.

@supremeultra@lostn: Yes it can, for scaled down looking games. I'll bet it could do 240 fps for an 8 bit indie game.

It was an okay game, nice story, but couldn't get into it- Mostly due to annoying controls(with a controller) when it was obviously designed for kinect.

What was the purpose of removing the Kinect controls? PC has Kinect.

@EcksTheory: Yes 1.3 million downloads does seem like a very low number...considering there are at least 14M XB1s in peoples homes. But Rayman Legends (probably the best free game ever offered) only lists 1.9M users on the leaderboards...and alot of them probably owned the game prior to it's free offering. I wonder if MS has more than 2M Gold Members on the XB1.

@nic332@EcksTheory: A month is a long time. 1.3 million downloads is actually kind of soft , given that it was free.

Why did Gamespot feel the need to put "1080p 60fps" in the title of the article? Just say "D4 coming to PC."

He did the same thing with Limbo coming to newer consoles. I got a kick out of that one.

Sad that XB1 keeps losing it's exclusives, I still plan on picking one up though. Got my playstation and nintendo consoles, gaming pc and 360. Xbox One up to bat! Each console has its fair share of games and fun, anybody who thinks they should only pledge allegiance to just one company is a very close minded person.

It's smart of them to do... ignoring a growing pc gaming population just to stick around a platform that isn't selling well with a game selling far less than it could.. any person with an iq higher than 50 who wanted money would pull every string they could to get their game on any platform other than the xb1.

Seeing how the PC port of Deadly Premonition turned out, this isn't really exciting news at all.

Well Swery65 is the man behind both games, although I believe Deadly Premonition had a different development team attached to it.

This game was free on games with gold and that's about the value of it to me $0. I played it for like an hour and it's unbelievably boring.
