Preloading for Capcom's open-world zombie apocalypse Dead Rising 3 has begun on Steam, though it weighs in a costly 30GB for eager digital users.

Originally an Xbox One exclusive, the PC version boasts a number of features over its console brethren including high resolution, full Steam and game controller support. As an added bonus all four of the “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos” downloadable add-on packs are now included. Each add-on chapter focuses on a different protagonist and gives players access to crazy new weapons and vehicles that carry over to the main game.

If you haven't yet pre-ordered you can do so through the Steam page, which is currently offering a 10% discount putting the price tag at $44.99. Thinking of picking up Dead Rising 3 but not sure what to expect? Check out our original review of the Xbox One version for our thoughts on Capcom's zombie-infused title.

Unlike the Xbox One predecessor, when Capcom's open-world zombie apocalypse sim Dead Rising 3 reaches PC land come September 5, it won't just include the main game, but also all four Untold Stories of Los Perdidos DLC episodes at no additional cost.

The news about the game, now known as Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition, comes directly from a message through the official Dead Rising Twitter account. Capcom also noted in a later tweet that those who had jumped in early on the pre-orders will also be upgraded to the Apocalypse Edition for free, a much-appreciated gesture.

It's unknown if Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition will include any DLC beyond the Untold Stories of Los Perdidos episodes, such as the miscellaneous costume DLC awarded to players for buying Dead Rising 3 at launch, or the more recent, multiplayer-focused Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha.

Steam's annual week-long Summer Sale promotion kicked off today with deep discounts across the platform, and one of the titles among the first daily deals stood out.

Capcom recently revealed that the formerly Xbox One exclusive open world zombie brawler Dead Rising 3 would be making its way to PC, and today they've not only revealed a September 5th 2014 release date for the port, but its pre-order price of US$49.99 has temporarily been discounted 25% to US$37.49 as part of the Steam Sale (thanks VG247).

The official Capcom Unity blog also points to this Steam community post featuring a couple of video downloads intended to show off the 60 frames-per-second gameplay the PC version will offer over the 30FPS capped Xbox One outing.

Capcom has announced new DLC for zombie sandbox title Dead Rising 3, inviting past Dead Rising main characters back into the game with an arcade filter to boot.

Titled the ridiculous Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha DASH, the DLC celebrates Capcom's "31th anniversary," with a riff on the publisher's tendency to add words to the incremental updates of its Street Fighter series. And Street Fighter's cast, plus numerous others from Capcom's stable, will be a part of the action. Mike Haggar from Final Fight, Felecia from Darkstalkers and an enormous M. Bison all featured in the bizarre trailer Capcom showed.

The DLC is available directly through Xbox Live right now for Xbox One. Check out the crazy trailer below.

After being spotted on the Steam Database yesterday, Capcom has today officially confirmed that PC players on Steam will be getting the originally Xbox One exclusive title Dead Rising 3.

The critically acclaimed Xbox One exclusive launch title Dead Rising 3 will be available for PC digital download on Steam globally and a retail version for Windows PC in Summer 2014. PC gamers will be able to experience the hordes of horror at high PC resolutions with fully optimized visuals for the wide screen, upgraded textures on characters, backgrounds and in-game objects.

Dead Rising 3 on PC will also include a number of Steam goodies such as achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Trading Cards, global leaderboards and full game controller support. Capcom notes that players will be able to switch on-the-fly with keyboard and mouse or controller.

Dead Rising 3's system specs have also been released, which you can check out in full over at Steam but for those wanting to hit the highest quality you'll be in need of a GeForce GTX 670 2GB or ATI Radeon 7970 2GB and a Intel Core i5-4570 CPU or AMD equivalent. Ouch. Check out the trailer below for all the hilarious zombie action.

Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 may be heading to PC, if a recent Steam Database entry is to be believed.

The zombie-filled open-world action game appeared under the name "Walking" on the SteamDB (thanks to NeoGAF), with various Dead Rising 3 logos also littered across the entry, one of which you can find here. Since appearing on the database the entry has been modified, now showing a generic title "SteamDB Unknown App 26550" and the header Dead Rising 3 images removed.

Dead Rising 3 was originally released exclusively on Xbox One for its November launch, developed by Capcom Vancouver and published by Microsoft Studios. Currently the only Dead Rising titles to make their way over to PC land are Dead Rising 2 and its standalone expansion, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. Hopefully we'll hear more starting next week as E3 2014 begins.

Chaos Rising, the third DLC for Dead Rising 3, will be released tomorrow, February 26th, publisher Microsoft Studios announced today on the Xbox Tumblr.

Capcom hasn't revealed any information on what or who exactly the Chaos Rising DLC will revolve around, though going by the motorcycle with chainsaw blades for wheels posted on the Tumblr page it may involve Hunter Thibodeaux, the leader of a biker gang. Dead Rising 3's two previous expansions, Operation Broken Eagle and Fallen Angel, each introduced a new playable character — Adam Kane and Angel Quijano, respectively.

As with the past two DLC's this one will be available for free to season pass holders, though comes with a price tag of $9.99 for everyone else.

Capcom has officially revealed that their Xbox One exclusive title Dead Rising 3, the third sequel in the series, has surpassed one million sales since its launch on November 22nd. Strangely though is the fact that the game had actually surpassed the one million mark on December 20th, though Capcom has only just officially announced the details today.
As a title solely for a new-generation game system, "Dead Rising 3" has an unprecedented number of zombies and the most expansive game world yet in the franchise. There are also online capabilities, more advanced Kinect features, Xbox SmartGlass integration and a host of other gameplay features that dramatically enhance the realism of the experience.

User response has been strong as expected for a title made for a new-generation game system; cumulative number of hours played is more than 14 million worldwide. Offering a high quality gameplay experience with the launch of a new generation of hardware has earned strong support among consumers. As a result, shipments of "Dead Rising 3" have topped one million units in just over one month after its release, making this Capcom's 62nd million-selling title.
According to their recently published financial report for the first half of fiscal year ending March 31, 2014, Capcom were hoping to hit a goal of 1.2 million units sold by end of March, which looks to be the case thanks to the strong launch. Digital downloads were however not noted in the statement, so it is unclear how many were sold through that avenue.

In related Dead Rising 3 news the game's first DLC, Operation Broken Eagle, has now become available for Xbox One users, though be warned as you'll need to download a quite large 13GB download before jumping in.

Ahead of its DLC release tomorrow, Capcom Vancouver released a new title update today for Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3, weighing in at a whopping 13GB which is sure to cause concern for those on smaller data caps.

The update introduces a host of improvements to single-player and co-op gameplay, including a variety of performance and stability upgrades, and fixes for issues related to achievements, UI updates, SmartGlass and more. Additionally, Capcom also says the update adds a new impulse trigger feature that notifies players when they are running low on ammo, though this one was thought to have already been in-game.

Operation Broken Eagle is the first episode in the “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos” DLC series. This single-player episode puts you in control of Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane on a mission that challenges everything he believes and sets him out to capture the missing President of the United States. ‘Operation Broken Eagle’ will cost $9.99 and features a new mission, five new weapons, one new combo weapon, one new vehicle, a new clothing outfit, plus additional Gamerscore and the ability to carry experience points back to Dead Rising 3.

For the full details on the new patch you can check out Xbox Wire, and hopefully this update doesn't consume all your precious data.

Originally planned for a December 24th release, Capcom has announced that "Operation Broken Eagle," the first DLC episode for Xbox One's zombie-filled open-world title Dead Rising 3, has been pushed back to January 21.

"Adding new content to the massive open world of Los Perdidos is a major undertaking, and to ensure we provide the best possible experience for players, we are putting a few additional weeks of polish and testing into the episode before it's released," an announcement from a Capcom spokesperson reads.

Operation Broken Eagle will put you in the boots of Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane who is given a mission that "challenges everything he believes in" — he has to find and capture the President of the United States. It will contain that mission plus five new weapons to tinker with, a new combo weapon, a new vehicle, an outfit and additional Gamerscore.

Those of you who may have picked up an Xbox One and contemplating whether to throw down your hard earned cash at Capcom's zombie-killing title Dead Rising 3 will be happy to hear that a limited 20-minute demo is now available to satisfy your undead tastebuds.

The announcement comes from Xbox Live's Major Nelson, who also revealed new details on the very first DLC you can expect for Dead Rising 3. Titled Operation Eagle, the new DLC will put you in the boots of Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane who is given a mission that "challenges everything he believes in" — he has to find and capture the President of the United States. It will contain that mission plus five new weapons to tinker with, a new combo weapon, a new vehicle, an outfit and additional Gamerscore.
As opposed to Nick, who is relatively good willed in nature facing military opposition, Adam is a by the books soldier with a crew of Spec Ops fighting for him. You get to take on some over the top military weapons and an armored vehicle that spews bullets. You get to take on missions that go against what Nick would have fought for, but as you discover through the story you can also relate to how Adam struggles to follow through on his difficult orders.
Capcom's executive producer Josh Bridge revealed that this DLC is only the first of four planned, all revolving around the Untold Stories of Los Perdidos experiences. Each episode will focus on a new individual, one who is trying to survive in parallel with the game's original protagonist Nick Ramos.

Dead Rising 3's demo is now available on Xbox One and the Operation Eagle DLC will be dated at a later time, with a price point of $9.99 though is also included in the Season Pass. You can read up more on the DLC at Major Nelson's blog post.

Console launch, console launch. 1080p, 60-fps, RAM, jaggies, performance, visuals, controller, voice and face recognition... the list of items to talk about goes on and on with this 'next-gen', but very little seems to focus on gameplay.

Dead Rising 3 lacks in so many buzzwordy areas of this new console launch period, yet it nails gameplay like it's been doing it for years. Oh wait, it has. If you can look past the technical shortcomings you might find a veritable zirconia in the rough with Dead Rising 3 -- it's not the prettiest game on the block, but no one said killing thousands and thousands of zombies was going to be a clean job, did they?

Capcom has revealed a new interactive trailer for their zombie-filled third-person title Dead Rising 3, utilising a large list of YouTube videos to make create a choose-your-own-adventure in which viewers must bring protagonist Nick Ramos safely to the "after party."

"Travel through Los Perdidos, create insane weapon and vehicle combos along the way, and share the most epic moments with friends" marks the first YouTueb video, tasking you with two choices on how to deal with the zombies surrounding you below. While in theory the idea is that you will try to keep Nick Ramos alive, it seems there is no actual way to die, but that doesn't really matter when you are gathering up the undead in whimsical ways like a fire-breathing bull costume.

Dead Rising 3 will be available come the launch of the Xbox ONe on November 22nd. Begin your adventure below.

Dead Rising 3 is getting into the spirit of Halloween with a new trailer giving you a quick look at the somewhat over-the-top costumes you'll be able to don while taking out the horde of zombies in this Xbox One exclusive.

From a shark suit that is sadly lacking in the Jaws theme department to a carved pumpkin filled with explosives, I'm pretty sure Dead Rising 3 is going to be perfectly fine when it comes to the more bizarre methods of taking those pesky undead down.

Of course it isn't just Halloween that Dead Rising 3 has for us, with Capcom sharing more information on the Season Pass to be offered come the game's launch on November 22nd. The four content packs on offer are "Operation Broken Eagle," which will be available in late December, followed by "Fallen Angel," "Chaos Rising," and "The Last Agent" later on. The Season Pass will be available at a price point of $29.99.

Dead Rising 3, Capcom's upcoming zombie apocalypse title set to launch on the Xbox One come November 22nd has splattered itself across the R18+ rating for Australia.

According to the Australian Classification Board, the title received the rating due to "high impact” violence and gore, “strong impact” sex and “moderate impact” nudity, which considering the zombie-themed apocalypse that the series is based on it isn't much of a surprise.

Killer Instinct, another launch title for Microsoft's next-gen console, also found its way to a softer rating of M. Oddly enough Killer Instinct ticked all of the Classification's boxes, including drug usage which is an odd one for a fighter.

Dead Rising 3 and Killer Instinct are set to launch alongside the Xbox One on November 22nd for Australia and 12 other countries including America and New Zealand.

Capcom Vancouver has revealed a new CGI trailer (via IGN) for their upcoming Xbox One exclusive title Dead Rising 3, showing off main protagonist Nick and his useful ways of taking out the dreadful undead. It isn't the most story intensive trailer to be found, but it definitely gives you an idea of what to expect from the third title in the Dead Rising series.
Set 10 years after the events of “Dead Rising 2,” “Dead Rising 3” takes place in the vast city of Los Perdidos amid a nationwide zombie outbreak that’s on the brink of decimating mankind. The story follows Nick Ramos, a young mechanic with a strange tattoo and a mysterious past who must find a way to escape a city full of thousands of bloodthirsty zombies before an impending military strike wipes the city and everyone in it off the map. But Nick can’t do it alone — he must join up with other survivors to stay alive and fight their way out before it’s too late.
Hopefully we'll see more of the game come Gamescom tomorrow but for now check it out below for all its swearing, gore, and zombie killing.

Dead Rising 3 will be available exclusively on Xbox One when the console launches in November.

I sat in on two Dead Rising 3 preview sessions at E3 this year -- one at the Capcom booth that was a full room with no room for questions, and the other at an Xbox One behind closed doors session with developer Capcom Vancouver where I didn't shut up with the questions.

The end result is a pretty solid understanding of the Xbox One launch title alongside a number of excellent quotes from the team, especially executive producer, Josh Bridge. We learn about the game's unique use of Kinect and SmartGlass (arguably the best of E3 in my opinion), the team's change in the game's tone, what's new and what has carried over from previous entries and, more importantly, the expanded role zombies will play in Dead Rising 3.

Announced earlier this morning, Microsoft has revealed that the third title in the Dead Rising series will be Xbox One exclusive, and will also be seeing a release at the launch of the console come November 2013.
Set 10 years after the events of “Dead Rising 2,” “Dead Rising 3” takes place in the vast city of Los Perdidos amid a nationwide zombie outbreak that’s on the brink of decimating mankind. The story follows Nick Ramos, a young mechanic with a strange tattoo and a mysterious past who must find a way to escape a city full of thousands of bloodthirsty zombies before an impending military strike wipes the city and everyone in it off the map. But Nick can’t do it alone — he must join up with other survivors to stay alive and fight their way out before it’s too late.
Conveying a very dark theme compared to the more lighthearted titles beforehand, Dead Rising 3 is looking to be a much more expansive zombie title with the offer of an entire city to explore.

For a look at the expansive world and its sandbox themes, check out the announcement trailer below which even includes a very cool sledgehammer saw that I could definitely see a use in a zombie apocalypse.
