Windows 10 exclusive no more
Not content with just staying in the Microsoft “Play Anywhere” Xbox One and Windows 10 ecosystem, Capcom is moving Dead Rising 4 to Steam this coming March. The port will come roughly four months after its December 2016 launch, hitting Steam on March 14, 2017. If you pre-order now you’ll get it for 20% off, and the price will revert back to its full retail price after launch.
It’s good that Microsoft didn’t lock Capcom down in this deal with some egregious terms, like a one-year exclusivity of some kind. I mean, I understand why it happens, but the more platforms we get, the merrier. And while I don’t agree with the stripping down of some mechanics for Dead Rising 4, I’d still like to see the series live on — and Windows 10 alone on PC doesn’t instill much confidence.
