After some leaked images made their way online a few days before it official announcement, players thought that Dead Rising 4 would take things back with a reboot of the series. Instead we get an all new game staring Frank West, which is set to release later this year on Xbox One and PC and supported by Xbox Play Anywhere
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.
On top of that, 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.
The game is also bringing 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.
