Dead Rising 2: Case Zero dated, priced

Capcom’s announced the dates and price for Dead Rising 2‘s Xbox exclusive prologue.

On August 31st, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will hit Xbox Live, allowing players to get their hands on the game early and bludgeon zombies to death with an assortment of violent and barbaric weapons such as soft cuddly bears and water pistols. Failing that, you could always grab the trusty baseball bat or chainsaw. For those feeling a little creative, Case Zero will also include the weapon-crafting system found in the full game, which sees protagonist Chuck Greene duct taping various items together to make combo weapons, which also awards the player extra prestige points, leveling up your character quicker.

Players who buy both Case Zero and Dead Rising 2 will be able to carry over their character level, prestige points, weapon combo cards and alternate outfits from the prologue.

“How much will this cost me?” I hear you ask. For a mere 400 MS points, the prologue is yours.

Dead Rising 2 will be out in North America on September 28th, Japan on September
30th and throughout European and Australian territories on October 1st, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
