Whenever Capcom would mention the outsourced PC port of DmC: Devil May Cry, it would couch the release in vague terms of "shortly after" the console versions. That didn't exactly leave PC fans brimming with confidence that they'd be demon-hunting anytime soon. Capcom apparently meant it, though, as the company today announced the PC version will be available as a downloadable title less than two weeks after the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases.

The PC game will include full AMD support, including AMD Eyefinity multi-display and AMD CrossFire, keyboard/mouse and controller support, and can run at 60 FPS unlike its console cousins. Grabbing it from Steam will grant you the usual perks like cloud saving and achievements.

Capcom also released minimum and recommended specs for the PC title:

      So Capcom ditched the crap GFWL and now using Steamworks. It is really awesome.

        Once I saw that Mark of the NInja (published by Microsoft Studios) was using steamworks I knew that GFWL's days were over.

        The press release doesn't say that the game uses Steamworks only. It just says that if you buy the game on Steam, you get Steam achievements and cloud saves. The Steam version of Arkham City had Steam achievements and cloud saves but it also required GfWL. I suspect DmC will be the same.
