It's been flying under the radar considering the other huge releases dropping these past few weeks, but everyone's favourite sellotaping-a-pool-cue-to-a-chainsaw-simulator Dead Rising 4 is ready to chow down on some brains next week. It's coming to PC on December 6th alongside Xbox One thanks to Microsoft's Xbox Play Anywhere initiative. Before you get casually genocidal though, have a sneak peek at the official Dead Rising 4 system requirements to see if your gaming setup is ready to rumble.

Dead Rising 4 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.1 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 6 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB or AMD Radeon R9 270X
  • DX: DirectX 12
  • HDD: 50 GB Installation Size

Dead Rising 4 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 390

As far as Microsoft's initial batch of Xbox Play Anywhere games which run on both Xbox One and PC, these system requirements for Dead Rising 4 are down at the low end. Not that hard when it's stacked up to the likes of Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4, both of which require incredibly beefy rigs to run. As it stands Dead Rising 4's system requirements are reasonable then, in particular down at the low-end.

For those looking at just getting Dead Rising 4 up and running a graphics card with 2GB video memory is basically all you're going to need. The GTX 750 Ti started running into trouble with Dead Rising 3 so it makes sense for the GTX 760 to slot in as a minimum GPU. For those of a red persuasion an R9 270X or upwards should see you through. The 6GB RAM requirement may catch a few out so bear this in mind. Once a game runs out of memory it will move onto your storage devices, severely hampering performance.

For the time being it looks as if Dead Rising 4 will be exclusive to the Windows 10 Store. This means Windows 10 is a minimum requirement, as is DirectX 12. If it's anything like Rise of the Tomb Raider then expect to see it crop up on Steam further down the line.

Aside from this it's only the 50GB installation size to point out, although that's par for the course these days when it comes to any AAA title. 

Moving up to the recommended requirements for Dead Rising 4 and we see a sizeable bump. A fairly top of the line processor from the last three or so years is required, alongside some graphics cards middleweights in the form of a GTX 970 or R9 390. If you're rocking the newer GTX 1060 or RX 480 then you should also be set here.

Guys, the game is NOT using DirectX 12, according to Microsoft Store and Capcom, the game is only using DirectX 11. Some games on the Microsoft Store does not use DX12, ReCore is one of them.

If you scroll down to Windows 10 System Requirements, it only lists DirectX 11 as the recommended version.

I hope they port the game properly this time. I can't make Dead Rising 3 on fullscreen without doing some research for a fix or it's just me?

But who cares when all DX11 GPUs also support DX12,and from what we have seen so far games either perform the same or better on DX12 compared to DX11.

some games perform worse on dx 12. I've seen benchmarks here, but which game was i dont remember. But let them optimize first dx 12 for the newer GPU and then to make games for dx12 only. If they make games for dx 12 i think it'll be after GTX 12**+ series. I dont follow amd's so i can't say about them.

dx12 wasnt going ot magically lower requirements and get optimized. instead they kept the same requirements and jacked up whats available in the game. to optimize it, they have to use it. instead of doing it halfway by also doing dx11, they are jumping in all the way. that means they will get better at it faster instead of having dx11 to fall back on. as time gpoes on, the games have been getting better. at least for amd stuff. nvidia's halfway approach to dx12 has left them behind for the second generation.

what you guys are missing is that if the game does NOT have DX11 at all, then you need to be on windows 10... egh.... windows 10...

Windows Store exclusive. That's how Microsoft want it, annoyingly, so expect about 3 people to buy it until it eventually rolls onto Steam.

"getting with the times", usually means accepting that you are being screwed and I refuse to accept being screwed.
