This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the Dead Rising series, and to celebrate , Capcom is giving players the chance to re-live the classic zombie outbreaks on their next-gen systems. This year Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for digital download. The games are set to release on September 13th, 2016 across Europe and North America. The original Dead Rising will also be available on Steam as a digital download.
All three titles will return to take advantage of the current gen hardware systems, bringing the hilarious horror up to a gory-ous 1080p at 60 fps. Each new version of the game will also include all of the additional previously released DLC costumes.
As for the original Dead Rising, players can re-live the zombie outbreak that started it all and step into the shoes of freelance photojournalist Frank West. On the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime, a tip leads Frank to the small suburban town of Willamette that’s been overrun by zombies. It’s a true struggle to survive the endless stream of enemies, but with full reign of an entire shopping mall, Frank can use any items he can find to fight off the flesh hungry mob and search for the truth behind the nightmarish epidemic.
Dead Rising 2 was the popular sequel to the original Dead Rising and introduced Chuck Greene, a professional motorcycle racer. Surrounded by a huge horde of zombies in the casino town of Fortune City, Chuck finds himself in a race against time to obtain Zombrex, a life-saving drug that will keep his daughter Katey alive. Dead Rising 2 also takes the series one step further with the introduction of combo weapons like the “PaddleSaw”, two player co-op and four player gladiator battles.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record brings back photojournalist and original hero Frank West, returning in a reimagining of the Fortune City casino town from Dead Rising 2. The added Sandbox Mode allows players to explore the city and participate in deathly challenges, while Frank’s photo skills and upgraded camera features capture all the fun along the way.
Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be available to purchase as individual download titles on September 13th for $19.99. All three titles are also available as a “Dead Rising Triple Pack” preorder bundle for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $49.99.
