If you are looking to buy the PC version of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record when it arrives on October 11 we have some important information for you – that’s right Capcom has announced the game’s requirements and to be honest any half-decent gaming rig should play the game without any major problems.
According to EuroGamer you need to be running Windows XP, Vista or 7 with at least 2GB of RAM, in terms of processing power you need something similar (or better than) the Intel Core 2 Duo (2.4 GHz) or AMD Athlon X2 (2.2 Ghz). To install the game you will need 8.5GB of free space and to run it nicely you will need the NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS / ATI Radeon HD 3850 or better – obviously anything better than this will give you better frame rates etc. One important thing worth knowing is that to play the game you will need to carry out online activation, so make sure you have an active internet connection.
Lots of game retailers and services such as GamersGate and Direct2Drive currently offer a 10% saving if you pre-order the game, also if you buy the boxed version through Capcom you will get a free T-Shirt which reads ‘I Got Probed in Uranus Zone’ (see below).
It will be interesting to see how the PC version of the game compares to the PC / Xbox 360 versions, previously GameRankings.com averaged out dozens of review score and this resulted in a 81% score for the Xbox 360 release, an 80% score for the PS3 release and a 75% score for the PC – this clearly suggests that Dead Rising is more suited to consoles – but that said there is not a great deal in it.
Which platform will you choose? PC, PS3 or Xbox 360?
