Xbox One Exclusive Dead Rising 3′s Gameplay Shows Two Minutes of Explosive Action, Quite Literally

The upcoming Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 promises to bring the zombie apocalypse to a new level of complete madness, and the promise might actually be kept if the footage surfaced today is a good indicator of what the game will offer.

Looking alright. Nothing overly impressive here. But it looks good.

golding891900d ago

The game looks crazy fun. Just pure endless killing zombie fun.

Irishguy951900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

I only played DR1. It was alright. Fun at first but boring after a while. Reminds me of Saints Row in it's Fun to boredom ratio.

Do you know how fun killings hordes of idiots is? Not very. I tended to simply run by them after the initial fun of "Hey look at this massive horde to slaughter" because it's just well...not very fun. Either have less enemies which are more of a threat separately and make a horde truly something to be afraid of, or just don't bother imo. It's especially apparent when a horde is the main enemy in the game. You end up ' hey I have to get to the shop across the street, let me just equip this chainsaw and walk through the horde holding a button down.

The game is basically running off crappy gameplay and hoping the idea of killings lots of zombies or a massive horde is enough to grab peoples attention. It sounds cool in theory, not in practice(again unless the horde is a threatening horde and your not supposed to fight them)

Well that's my experience with the series anyway, although I did like the other stuff in it such as the nutjobs and creative bosses. But I guarantee you fighting the hordes of zombies with lightsabers or whatever you can find is not nearly as fun as it sounds. It also looks fun, but it's simply not that fun in practice. More so tedious, again after the initial 'wow' is over.

I would have to agree with you. I would much rather have this game on the PS4 over Titanfall. Mainly because of the all of the chaos going on.

MariaHelFutura1900d ago

Dead Rising 1 and 2 are some of my favorite games from this gen. Dead Rising 3 is by far my favorite Xbox One title.

4Sh0w1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

Although the vid quality is a mess. One word definitely describes this game. FUN.

Wow did I just read Maria's comment correctly. Well then Good for you Maria.

BallsEye1900d ago

Can't wait to play it CO-OP!! Will be a blast!

CrimsonStar1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

@ maria
Holy crap , Maria said something positive about the xbox1 , Half Life 3 confirmed .

mikeslemonade1900d ago

This game is going to be lame. Next article..

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

The thing I don't like is that its not meant to be a challenge I dont want to be a bad ass blowing up shit I want to fight or run for my life!

This is why dying light looks more interesting to me.

ma1asiah1900d ago

Holy Shit!!!!!!

This needs to be front page news

"Dead Rising 1 and 2 are some of my favorite games from this gen. Dead Rising 3 is by far my favorite Xbox One title." - MariaHelFutura

Promote this to the top it maybe the last time ever we get to see a positive comment in regards to a title coming exclusively to the X1

Did hell freeze over, is it a blue moon??????

In any case good for you even if it maybe the one and only time we ever see it.

P0werVR1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )


Which is why we'll be playing the best of both worlds.

Fun outrageous zombie killing with DR3 and zombie survival with Dying Light.

Now that's what I call gaming stamina!

Compared to the DR 2 I am playing right now, this game looks like its a gen and a half ahead.

hakeem09961900d ago

The only thing that game is missing is four players co-op

jb2271900d ago

Yeah the first few videos looked much more impressive visually than this one to me...the amount of zombies onscreen is cool, but I'd take the last of us over this everyday and twice on sunday

dale_denton1900d ago

the framerate is horrible...

Capital Dream1900d ago

You are so full of crap. Thank you now you can pass yourself through the toilet.

Playstaion 1900d ago

I would prefer a realistic approach myself , this is more arcade with the fire breathing bull mask not for me to judge but not for me .

okmrman1899d ago

realistic and zombies in the same sentence
nice :)

That was pretty raw, and.. chaotic. Looks like it'll be fun.

IMightBeRetarded1900d ago

It really looks like fun, but I just have a feeling that mindless slaughtering of enemies, with what doesn't look like much of a challenge won't hold my interest for very long.

CrimsonStar1900d ago

So far my my most anticipated launch title . GG college .

Hellsvacancy1900d ago

Hmmm, It looked pretty cool when it was first announced, I thought Capcom had dropped the silly over the top comedy violence for a more real approach

This trailer confirms they haven't done that, it looks just a stupid as the other games

Abriael1900d ago

Well yeah, this is just like saying "saints row is bad because it ain't serious".

That's how the franchise is.

Hellsvacancy1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

I didn't say it was "bad" I said it looked silly/stupid, Carmageddon was silly/stupid, I loved it.........when I was 14

Maybe if I was 14 now i'd be all over this, i'm just over double that age now, "I prefer" more maturer, realistic games

If DR3 was that maybe i'd be a little envious, it looks to be exactly the same, with a shinier coat of paint, and MORE zombies/blood

(I didn't disagree)

meatysausage1900d ago

Yeah but zombie survival has been done so many times. Dead rising is unique like that and it looks awesome.

CrossingEden1900d ago

"I prefer" more maturer, realistic games"
Um really? You use the word maturer dude, get off your high horse. Games at the end of the day, are about FUN. And if realism has to be sacrificed so we can have more fun then i'm perfectly fine with that.

cunnilumpkin1900d ago


and dem jaggies

seriously looks last gen

gaelic_laoch1900d ago

I had to double check I was watching that Vid in 1080HD! Looks fun though and will keep xbone buyers happy until the devs settle in with the new hardware capabilities!

GarrusVakarian1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

Looks fun, but the graphics are quite underwhelming as are the animations, the only appealing thing to me is how many zombies are on the screen at once. Seems like a decent launch game, but one that will be quickly forgotten.

Was that a lightsabre? Awesome.

meatysausage1900d ago

personally i dont care about graphics that much but i agree that they are not that special However this game does a whole lot of processing, zombie full of a huge city with no load times. Sounds good to me

deep_fried_bum_cake1900d ago

Graphics don't matter. This is gaming, not cinema. The game looks fun as hell.

GarrusVakarian1900d ago

Of course graphics matter to a certain extent, did you not read the part when i also said it looked fun?

DonFreezer1900d ago

Now ps fantrolls you have fallen to the animations.You have seen that Ryse has 140.000 polygons for the main character compared to 40.000 in Killzone and now you are crying about the animation?

GarrusVakarian1900d ago (Edited 1900d ago )

So a difference of opinion is automatically assumed as trolling? Little do you know but i'm BUYING an Xbox One, and Forza 5 and Titanfall are 2 of my most anticipated games. I'm criticizing the game as a game, not as an Xbox exclusive, don't judge other people by your standards. And this is an article about DR3 not RYSE.............

BallsEye1900d ago

This game is more than decent, trust me. I thought Dead Rising 2 was crap when I saw videos but once I've tried it in co-op mode it was one of coolest gaming adventures ever! Can't wait to play this one in co-op! Full blown city! DR2 overwhelmed me with all the things you can do there...million ways to kill a zombie. This is gonna be so much better! Getting it day one with my XO :D!
