Will it ever come to pass that PC gamers can look at a titles console release date and say; ‘Hey, I’ll definitely get the PC version then too’?
The curse of the PC platform continues, with the latest game to suffer a delayed release being Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Future Soldier. By the time the game releases on the PC, it will have been out on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for over a month. At least it’s not as bad as some delays! The title will eventually hit shelves of both physical and digital nature on June 28.
The game has scored strongly in it’s console release, picking up an 8.5 here at Capsule (click here for the review). The PC version will bring the same single and multiplayer experience to the table but with several graphical improvements and obviously, different control options. The chunkier hardware available to this version of the game will allow for enhanced lighting effects, improved post processing and more complex textures. Control wise gamers will be able to opt for the keyboard and mouse combo or plug in a wired or wireless Xbox 360 controller. Th game will support DX11, and if the lack of Windows XP in the minimum specs freaks you out, don’t fret, there will be a patch released for that particular OS shortly after the game is released – no date as yet.
