Yes friends, the wacky, open-world, million-selling zombie slay-fest known as Dead Rising 3 is indeed coming to PC! If you’ve got a PC that’s up to spec and some–wait for it– steam to blow off, you can look forward to slaughtering thousands upon thousands of zombies this summer.

Massive info and asset dump after the jump, including one of the most delightful game trailers of all time. 

↑ Featuring the tune “After Dark” by Hieroglyphics. I hope you guys are as tickled as I am right now.

As you may or may not know by now, Dead Rising 3 is set in the massive, open city of Los Perdidos, ten years after the events of Dead Rising 2. Zombies are more numerous than they were back in Fortune City–like, ridiculously numerous–and even have more intelligent AI. 

You’ll have to get pretty creative to survive this zombie apocalypse. Luckily, combo weapons are back and crazier than ever.

Meanwhile, the game stars Nick Ramos, a highly resourceful auto mechanic. Get him behind the wheel and he’s a force to be reckoned with. 

He can even create his own “Combo Vehicles” specially designed for dispatching zombies in hilariously efficient ways. 

In fact…I’m pretty sure he’s got this.

The game will of course include full Steam platform support with Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Trading Cards, global leaderboards, and controller support. You can run it in high resolution on your fancy PC display, and yup, you can still play online coop with your best bud!
