Frank West returns in an all new story for Dead Rising 4.
Dead Rising fans were treated to the surprise announcement of Dead Rising 4 as part of Microsoft’s E3 presentation, and fans of the original game will be particularly pleased to learn that war photographer Frank West will be returning to a starring role. Unlike previous installments in the series, Dead Rising 4 will launch simultaneously on PC and Xbox One on November 23rd, 2016.
“Frank is back in Willamette, Colorado, 16 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,” wrote Microsoft in a blog post.
Dead Rising 4 will feature several new types of zombies, including the “fresh” – freshly turned zombies that maintain the speed and agility of their human forms, and the “evo” – zombies that have “evolved” to take on traits from predatory animals.
Some fan-favorite features will return, including the ability to combine hundreds of weapons and vehicles to combat the horde, while new features include Exo-suits and drop-in-drop-out 4-player co-op multiplayer.
This game certainly looks like a return to what made Dead Rising so enjoyable in the first place. Lets just hope they’ve ditched the awful save system of the first game…
