Resident Evil 6 give Uncle Phil a hug

In a blog post yesterday, Capcom announced that the PC version of Resident Evil 6 will arrive on March 22 for download (with an additional physical release in Europe), and revealed system requirements for the zombie-filled port.

Capcom said the port features full Steam support for achievements, cloud saving, friends, and leaderboards. The publisher also confirmed all previous console updates will be wrapped with the PC version when it arrives: an update released for the console version this week added the "No Hope" difficulty and increased zoom levels for camera control, and an additional update rolling out in January provides individual stage selection within chapters and a quick-time event assist that allows automatic completion of the keyboard-mashing action segments.
