‘Castle Crashers’ Makes Its Way To PC Next Week

Published 2 years ago by

Castle Crashers PC Release

Chances are you’ve heard of Castle Crashers. The Xbox Live Arcade title was thrust into the spotlight shortly after launch, becoming a best seller for developer The Behemoth while also solidifying XBLA as a go-to platform for indie developers. Now, four years after its initial release, the game will finally be made available on PC.

Castle Crashers will release via Steam on September 26th, 2012, for both Mac and Windows (sorry Linux users), and will offer cross-platform play. This is a welcome addition, especially for those gamers who have friends playing on a different OS.

As has become common for new PC releases, Castle Crashers will offer gamepad support, meaning those who have played it on the 360 or PS3 should be able to make the switch without issue.  When it comes to system specs, the minimum requirements are quite reasonable, and the game should run fine for most users. Surprisingly, the Mac version is more demanding than the PC version, with recommended specs being set at 4GB of RAM, versus the PC’s 2GB.

Check out the specs below:

Castle Crashers was originally released as an XBLA exclusive in 2008. Preceding the PC port, the game was released on PSN in 2010, where it continues to be a best seller. Developer The Behemoth also released a piece of DLC titled the Pink Knight Pack for $1.99, and the proceeds went directly to charities involved with breast cancer research – quite an admirable move on the developer’s part. There is still no word on whether or not the DLC will come to the Steam version of the game.

Will you be picking up the PC version of Castle Crashers?

Castle Crashers will release for PC/Mac on September 26, 2012, and is currently available on PSN and XBLA.
