Dead Rising 4 Confirmed for Steam Release

Dead Rising 4 is arriving to Steam this March, meaning that the game will no longer be a Windows 10 exclusive. If you pre-order it, you can get 20% off and the X-Fists Exo Suit Weapon as a bonus. Upon launch, the price will be standard. For prices of physical copies at Europe retailers, you’ll have to check individually.

Capcom also released a trailer for the Steam release. Take a look below.

The video itself is a parody of feature-listing game trailers. Everything they talk about is a twist or a pun on what PC players expect from their games, or just flat-out made-up nonsense. For example, 60 fps is turned into 60 zps – zombie deaths per second. There’s talk of “robust monitor support” with footage of Frank West smashing zombies with huge monitors. the “integrated anti-virus protection” joke probably needs no explanation. Scalable wardrobe simulation just shows off the ludicrous getups you can put together, and so on.

It’s worth noting that the reception of the trailer has been largely negative. Aside from the usual fan criticism of the game being unfaithful to its predecessors, there’s many complaints about the Dead Rising 4 being very poorly optimized for the PC. Hopefully, they will have fixed that problem by the time the game launches on Steam.
