Zombie killers on PC have anxiously been waiting for Capcom to release Dead Rising 3 on their platform of choice since it was announced shortly before E3. Today, Capcom has officially given a release date to the former Xbox One exclusive. PC players can pick up their modded rakes and battery-powered shovels and start mowing down the undead on September 5.

Capcom went into more detail regarding what the PC version will contain on a recent Steam announcement post. The post mentions that the game is optimized to run at 30 frames per second, but is expected to run beyond that, depending on a user's hardware setup. Those looking to see how the game runs beyond 30fps can check out footage that the studio has provided, which can be found here and here.

"We can't guarantee that there won't be issues, and obviously depending on your rig you may see different results," the post added. "Rest assured the beefier your gaming machine, the smoother your zombie killing experience will be."

For those keeping up with the Steam Summer Sale, Dead Rising 3's pre-order listing is currently slashed by 25% for the next two days.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I had to force myself through the second one coop with a friend. It was OK but no way I'd play it single player.
