For those of you looking for totally serious and bizarrely Christmas themed zombie slaying, I bring some good news! According to a recent announcement Capcom will be ushering Dead Rising 4 onto Steam on March 14th, 2017.

If you've somehow never seen a Dead Rising game, or if you just need a brief reminder of how insane all of it is, here's the relatively recent "Return to the Mall" trailer. It doesn't feature a ton of gameplay, but it does a rather good job of setting the proper mood. Anyway, here's the trailer:


Before you get too excited, it is important to mention that Dead Rising 4 is a fairly divisive game. From what I've seen there appears to be a substantial amount of players disappointed with how much it has diverged from the series roots. So before you dive in I would recommend reading a couple of reviews, just to make sure you're OK with all of the new changes.

And finally, if you're wondering whether your PC can even run it, here are the full system requirements:
