Dead Rising 2 Hits PC in August (Trailer Inside)

In what is unusual in the modern world of PC and console gaming co-existence, the sequel to a best-selling console game is headed to the PC.

Announced at Microsoft's X10 event is that Dead Rising 2 will be shipping for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC platforms on August 31, 2010.

To commemorate the event, Capcom released a new trailer showing off gameplay segments that are mostly composed to giving the beatdown to zombies. Check it out below!

Marcus Yam served as Tom's Hardware News Director during 2008-2014. He entered tech media in the late 90s and fondly remembers the days when an overclocked Celeron 300A and Voodoo2 SLI comprised a gaming rig with the ultimate street cred.

    Yeah I certainly hope the $680 I sunk into a 5970 allows me to see that praying mantis in all its glory!

    I was very disappointed in the game play shown. Needs more praying mantis.

    Ya seriously. I mean we all know what would really happen. If one praying mantis couldn't get the job done 100 would show up in no time.

    Looks to be the best game ever! totally worth buying, if only for the praying mantis. The added advantage of it being violent in the case of images on the screen just adds to the attraction!
