The holiday themed Dead Rising 4 was announced during Microsoft's E3 conference and today Capcom has confirmed that the game will star the protagonist from the original Dead Rising Frank West as he goes back to Willamette, Colorado sixteen years after the events of the original. The game is set to be released on Xbox One and Windows 10 later this year.
Frank is back in Willamette, Colorado sixteen years after the events of the original Dead Rising. A mysterious outbreak has overrun the Willamette Memorial Megaplex Mall and surrounding town with deadly predators and Frank soon realizes that what’s dead doesn’t always stay that way.
As Frank seeks to uncover the truth behind the outbreak, he will face new undead enemies, including the Fresh – newly zombified victims that will turn in front of his eyes and exhibit superior speed and ferocity, and the Evo – zombies with superior strength and mobility that mimic the behavior of predatory hunting animals.
Additionally, all of our fan-favorite features return including the ability to combine hundreds of weapons and vehicles to combat the horde ranging from the practical – to the practically insane. Frank will also have access to all-new EXO Suits, giving him super strength and incredible fire power including the ability to rip down part of the world to use as a weapon – from giant pipes to parking meters.
We’re also bringing fans a new approach to multiplayer, allowing you to play together with four friends to complete missions and conquer the zombie infested Willamette Memorial Megaplex, or quick match and join a game in progress with players around the world.
The original Dead Rising is certainly a classic, but a little bit different to the more recent entries in the series. With the introduction of an EXO Suit and a number of crazy high powered weapons this will be more Dead Rising 3 than the slower paced first game. But even so, it's great that the series is going back to its shopping centre roots.
