Devil May Cry Announced For PC, Coming in January

  • Though all video games are developed using PCs, major titles are now being geared toward the console market where publishers can charge more for games, where games are harder to pirate, and where hardware configurations are constant. In recent years, this has meant delays in the release (or sometimes no release) of the PC versions of games.

    Good news, then, for PC gamers who are fans of Capcom‘s Devil May Cry games. The publisher today announced that the PC version of the new Devil May Cry (DmC) will be coming in January. In fact, the PC version is set to launch on January 25, less than two weeks after the game launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No word yet on a Mac version.

    The PC version of the game will be available in retail stores in Europe, and through Steam and Origin everywhere. The game will be compatible with keyboard & mouse, Xbox 360 controllers, and third party controllers. Capcom also pointed out (as PC gamers are surely aware), that the game is capable of running at 60 frames per second on high-end PCs.

    The minimum system requirements for the game suggest that even an average PC gaming setup will be able to run the game well:

    Minimum System Requirements:
    OS: Windows Vista®/XP, Windows 7, Windows 8
    Processor: AMD Athlon™ X2 2.8 GHz or better, Intel® Core™2 Duo 2.4 Ghz or better
    Memory: 2 GB RAM
    Hard Disk Space: 8 GB free hard drive space
    Video Card: ATI Radeon™ HD 3850 or better, NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800GTS or better
    DirectX®: 9.0c or greater
    Sound: Standard audio device

    The recommended specs show that DmC on PC might look quite a bit better than its console versions:

    Recommended System Requirements:
    OS: Windows Vista®/XP, Windows 7, Windows 8
    Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X4 3 GHz or better, Intel® Core™2 Quad 2.7 Ghz or better
    Memory: 4 GB RAM
    Hard Disk Space: 9 GB free hard drive space
    Video Card: AMD Radeon™ HD 6950 or better
    DirectX®: 9.0c or greater
    Sound: Standard audio device
