Resident Evil 6 available for Pre-Purchase on Steam

Most people have probably forgotten by now that a PC version of Resident Evil 6 was even in development, after all it came out on home consoles nearly 5 months ago to a rather lukewarm reception by both fans and critics. Those gamers brandishing computers filled with colourful LED fans will finally get to see how what the game is like for themselves,  and relatively soon I might add. Resident Evil 6 for PC is coming out March 22, 2013 for $39.99, and it includes multiple pre-order tier options.

The first pre-order reward tier is a digital soundtrack and artbook, the second tier is a free copy of Resident Evil 5, and finally the third tier is a free DLC season pass. These rewards will unlock as more people pre-order the game, currently only tier 1 has been unlocked.

A few other details are now clarified pretaining to the PC version as well, such as the system requirements:

No word as to whether or not this release will be using Games For Windows live or not, Resident Evil 5 and a number of other Capcom titles utilized the service. However DmC: Devil May Cry did not, we’re hoping Resident Evil 6 follows suit.
