Usually publishers make a big song and dance about release date announcements, but here's an exception: a September 5 release date has quietly been confirmed for Dead Rising 3. No billion dollar CGI trailer was involved, nor any designedly cryptic teaser websites. The news comes via the Steam Summer Sale, which
lists the game's release date
as well as a 25 per cent discount on pre-orders. That means you can get it for US$37.49 instead of $49.99.
Originally released as an Xbox One exclusive in November last year, Capcom confirmed the PC port
at E3 last week
. Much to the chagrin of next-gen console owners, the PC edition will boast improved textures and visuals, as well as support for Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards and global leaderboards.
One thing the port won't boast is a 60 frames per second option, though
PC Gamer's Samuel Roberts
says the game is worth checking out anyway. Meanwhile, the
Steam Summer Sale
is in full force at present, and we've
selected our top picks
. Ready your wallets.
