It’s the 10th anniversary of the first Dead Rising game and to celebrate, Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for digital download on the 13th of September 2016 in North America and Europe.
In addition to this release, Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 will receive physical releases in North America on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and the original Dead Rising game will become available on Steam as a digital download. It’s a smorgasbord of corpses!
If you feel like dressing up, each new version of the game will also include all of the previously released DLC costumes. Players can expect all three titles to take advantage of current generation hardware systems, bringing all the gore and mayhem to 1080p resolution at 60 fps. For players that are new to the series, read on for an overview of each ridiculous entry in the Dead Rising series involved in this special deal.
Frank West is a freelance photojournalist who is on the hunt for a scoop of a lifetime – I bet you can guess what he found. That’s right – a small town called Willamette which has been overrun by zombies. Frank has an entire shopping mall at his disposal and can and will use any items he can find to fend off the flesh-hungry mob. Players can take photos – you are a photojournalist, after all – of the insanity as they search for the truth behind the outbreak.
Dead Rising 2
In the sequel to Dead Rising, you will play as Chuck Green, a professional motorcycle racer who finds himself in a race to obtain Zombrex to keep his once-bitten daughter Katey alive. Surrounded by an enormous horde of zombies in the Las Vegas-esque casino town of Fortune City, Chuck will have to use all of his ingenuity to piece together strange and exciting combo weapons like the PaddleSaw to take down the undead. In addition to the single player campaign, Dead Rising 2 offers two player co-op and really fun four player gladiator battles.
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
Frank West returns! This time the acclaimed photojournalist has come to a reimagining of Fortune City to explore the city in Sandbox Mode, participate in deadly challenges and once again use his (newly upgraded) camera to capture all the violence and hilarity!
Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be available for purchase as individual download titles on September 13th for $19.99 and comparative prices internationally. All three titles are also available as a Dead Rising Triple Pack preorder bundle for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for $49.99. As stated earlier, in North America a physical release of Dead Rising will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 13th and the physical release of Dead Rising 2 on the same consoles will be available on September 27th.
