Dead Rising 3 PC release date is September 5, according to Steam listing

Game to include fully optimised visuals and Steam features

The Dead Rising 3 PC release date is September 5, according to the product's Steam listing.

Capcom said earlier this month that Dead Rising 3 will be released on PC this summer as a digital download on Steam globally, and also at retail in Europe. We're checking with the publisher to confirm whether the September 5 release date is accurate.


The PC release promises "fully optimized visuals for the wide screen, upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects".

It will support Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards and global leaderboards. It will be playable with keyboard and mouse or using a game controller, with players able to toggle back and forth between the two in real time.

Developed by Capcom Vancouver, Dead Rising 3 launched last November as an Xbox One exclusive. The Microsoft published game sold 1.2 million copies between release and the end of Capcom's business year in March 2014.

Set ten years after Dead Rising 2, the game introduced new protagonist Nick Ramos, a young mechanic tasked with escaping a city full of zombies before an impending military strike wipes it off the map.

Its release was followed by the launch of four episodic DLC packs, each of which introduced new playable characters, weapons and vehicles.

CVG's Dead Rising 3 review said the title suffered "both visually and technically next to its fellow launch titles, but there's no denying there's still some madcap brand of fun to be had".
