The original story is below.
After launching on PC through the Windows Store in 2016, Capcom's Dead Rising 4 will be released on Steam next month, the publisher announced today. The zombie game comes to the PC gaming juggernaut on March 14.
A Steam announcement trailer has been released and can be seen above. The video jokes about PC-specific features like "coagulated blood shaders" that make blood look so realistic that the ESRB "actually called the cops" and "high dynamic range selfies."
Dead Rising 4's Steam release is not a total surprise, as Xbox boss Phil Spencer said last year that you can expect more Microsoft-published games to come to the digital store.
If you're planning to pick up Dead Rising 4 on Steam for PC, bear in mind that the Steam version does not include Xbox Play Anywhere benefits.
In other news about Dead Rising 4, Capcom management recently acknowledged the game's mixed critical reaction. "Compared to the series up to now, this game was made more approachable in order to allow a wider audience to enjoy it," the company said. "However, there was a wider range of opinions for the new game."
GameSpot's Dead Rising 4 review scored the game a 7/10.
"Dead Rising's zombie-slaughtering formula has started to wear a bit thin after all these years, especially since its combat remains largely routine," reviewer Scott Butterworth said. "The surprisingly well-crafted story, wild new combo weapons, and expansive open world elements, however, turn Dead Rising 4 into an over-the-top piece of popcorn entertainment that captures the series' best elements."
The newest DLC for Dead Rising 4 came out at the end of January in the form of Street Fighter-inspired outfits. Christmas-themed DLC for the game came out in December, while expansions headed to the game this year include Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf and Frank Rising.
