A little while ago, we told you that Dead Rising will make its way to the PC after 10 years, and it looks like its release date on this platform is just around the corner. Capcom has just announced that Dead Rising 1 will arrive on Steam on September 13, but the really good news is that the company also unveiled the official PC requirements for this title, as well as a few screenshots. As far as the minimum requirements are concerned, it looks like you won’t need more than a Nvidia GeForce GTX 550Ti or an AMD 6770 complemented by either an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz or an  AMD Athlon™ X2 2.8 Ghz. The recommended specs are more demanding, but not by much, as they ask for an Intel Core i5 or AMD equivalent, and a GeForce GTX 560 or and AMD 7790. Below you will find a complete list of features for the PC version of Dead Rising.
