Maybe using the word “crash” around videogames is a bad idea … oh well. The Behemoth has announced today that their mega-hit game Castle Crashers (played by something like 2.8 million people now) will be coming to Steam at some point in the future. When in the future? “I’d say a release date but the future’s unknown,” writes Behemoth’s Dan Paladin, before rhyming it with “If I make a mistake I shall never atone.”

    It’ll be the same side-scrolling 2.5D hack’n’slash fest it was on the Xbox 360 and (later) PlayStation 3, with unlockable characters, a bunch of weapons, fun bosses and adorable “animal orb” pals. Plus, a couple of Steam-related features like these:

    • Integrated voice chat
    • Steam Achievements
    • Gamepad support
    • Steam Cloud Support
    • Local and Online Multiplayer

    No word yet on whether the DLC characters will be integrated into this PC release (as sometimes happens), or on price (likely to be in the $10-15 USD range).

    Here are some system requirements though:

    • OS: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8
    • Processor: Dual Core Processor 2GHz+
    • Memory: 1GB
    • Hard Disk Space: 300MB
    • Video Card: Graphics: 256 MB dedicated directx 9.0c compatible card
    • Sound: DirectX 9.0 compatible sound card
