Sega’s robot-blasting squad-based third-person shooter Binary Domain is set to make its way to a PC near you in North America and Europe in April both in digital and retail formats, the company revealed today.
“As well as the excitement generated by Binary Domain in the console press we were seeing increasing numbers of players asking for a PC version. So we listened and we delivered.” said Gary Knight, SEGA’s Senior Vice President of Marketing.
Binary Domain saw a release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America, Europe and Japan back in February, but the company made no mention at the time when, if at all, the game would be ported over to the PC.
The company didn’t specify when Binary Domain would be released on the PC, but the page on the Steam store suggests that it’s set to release on April 6 for $39.99. If you pre-order Binary Domain on Steam ahead of the April 6 release date, you’ll be able to score yourself two new weapons, an exclusive mutliplayer map and “ninja” costumes.
Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator of the Yakuza series, also had a hand in creating Binary Domain. The game takes place in the year 2080 and is primarily set in Tokyo, where an army of robotic servants have decided to go rogue and turn on their masters. Not too original a concept, granted, but Binary Domain‘s creators manage to do some interesting things with it, as evidenced by the generally favorable reviews.
