Dead Rising 4 Coming to Steam Next Month

The announcement video is even more over the top than the game itself.


Dead Rising 4 is a fun little romp through hordes of zombies, but it had previously been confined to Xbox One and Windows 10. Now users of other PC operating systems can rejoice as the game is coming to Steam on March 14.

Capcom released a rather over the top trailer for the announcement (seen below), which is saying a lot since Dead Rising 4 is pretty over the top to begin with, but if it doesn't make you smile, you are probably as dead inside as the zombies that Frank West is trying to eliminate.

Steam is already running a Dead Rising 4 pre-order deal, offering 20 percent off the regular price at $47.99. The Deluxe Edition is $67.98, or 15% off. 

The PC specs for the game are:


  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • Processor:  Intel i5-2400 or AMD FX 6300
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2 GB) or AMD Radeon HD 7850 (2 GB)


  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel i7-3770 or AMD FX 8350
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4 GB) or AMD Radeon R9 290 (4 GB)

DirectX 11, a broadband internet connection, 50GB of storage space and a DX 11 compatible sound card are required for both.

And sorry, PS4 folks. You still have to wait several more months for Dead Rising 4's release on PlayStation 4. If you are still on the fence about the game, check out Steve Watts' Dead Rising 4 review.

      The game owns, I totally recommend it.

      Also in the end there was nothing wrong with the Windows Store version it did nothing to your computer. I have it and I love it.

        I had no issues either, but the Windows Store is lacking features for large apps like Backup & Restore. I've also had issues in the past with downloads getting interrupted midway having to restart from scratch. We are talking 60GB+ games here, it gets annoying.

          I agree with the features it lacks -> "Backup & Restore" they need to add that. Also I had the issues with the pause restart downloads with Gears 4 but ever since that game everything else has been perfect they fixed it with an store app update.

          I think there biggest issue is marketing and to get people to go there regularly, I bet most did not even know Dead Rising 4 came out on the Win Store.

          I use it for a bunch of games and it works really great now.

        I can't get my MICROSOFT Xbox 360 wireless controller working with anything I buy on Windows Store. I actually gave up on playing Recore until I found that a PS4 controller synced to my computer running DS4WIN actually gets recognized by Windows Store games. Kind of a lot of hoops to go through to use a controller on games that were made to be played with a controller.

        I am refusing to buy any more Microsoft Store games until this gets fixed.

          Grab a new xbone controller, they have bluetooth and don't need software. Oh and grab a bluetooth dongle if you dont have one.
