Let's be honest, Dead Rising 3 coming to PC was inevitable. Despite the Xbox One exclusivity at launch, I repeatedly said there was no way it wouldn't eventually come to PC, and finally, more than half a year later, that is coming to fruition. After the Steam Database entry leaked yesterday before being pulled, Capcom officially announced today that Dead Rising 3 will be coming to PC worldwide via Steam this Summer, with Europe also getting a retail version.

According to Capcom, this thankfully is not a mere port. Dead Rising 3 has been updated and optimized to run at the high resolutions PC gamers demand, "with upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects." Be sure to check out all the screenshots below, which are reportedly from the PC version. In addition, Steamworks has been fully integrated, bringing Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, and global leaderboards. The game is fully compatible with both game controllers and keyboard-and-mouse, with players able to toggle back and forth between the two in real-time.

While the Steam page has not been launched yet as of the time of this writing (UPDATE: Steam page now available), here are the system requirements word-for-word from the press release:
