Xbox One Exclusive Dead Rising 3 Gets Massive 13 GB Patch, Changelog Awaited

Just when I thought DR3 couldn't get any better, here comes a 13GB patch!
PeaSFor  +   676d ago
According to reports coming out from official Dead Rising 3 forums and Reddit, this 13GB update is only for FIRST part of FOUR part DLC that is due for release.

So to resume, you are forced to download the DLC even if you dont intend to purchase it.

@georgeenoob: A 720p game with texture pop-in and framerate issues, and you thought it "couldn't get any better?"

Eonjay  +   676d ago
A patch? Can you play while its downloading?
AngelicIceDiamond  +   676d ago
@Swanky DeadRising 3 is the the only game I have for next gen so far.

And everything your stating is lies and BS. That's it, lies and BS. The frame Rate runs fine. And if there is lag I barely or rarely notice.

As for this tired resolution argument. I have well 25,000 zombies slain to even give a crap about nor take notice of some resolution.

But when I do notice, wow what do you know the game looks good. I know its a shocker the crappy, low, inferior 720p in all.

You know 720p the mud resolution.

As for the patch I think its ridiculous. Especially with only 500 gigs. I mean, no that's not right imo.

13GB patch ?! 0_0

is...is someone going to download that ?!
ShwankyShpanky  +   676d ago | Well said
@AID: "everything your stating is lies and BS. That's it, lies and BS"

[subsequently admits that the game is in fact 720p, as if it could be denied]

And I've seen the other issues myself; you're not fooling anyone.

"There's an awful lot of texture and object pop-in, and the frame rate occasionally drops into choppy sub-30fps territory."

"there is a significant amount of texture pop-in and the occasional framerate drop when you’re in vehicles"

"noticeable texture pop-ins. Sometimes, for example, I would have to be merely a few yards away before a discarded newspaper appeared on the ground."

"textures frequently being bland and a hell of a lot of late pop-in occurring"

"quite frequent texture pop ins"

"Billed as being locked at 30 frames per second, this is far from the case as the action can easily dip as low as 15 frames per second."

"Graphical glitches and framerate issues are common, with a day one patch addressing some of the more egregious problems."

"We also can't overlook the shocking degree of texture and detail pop-in"

Please note that I made sure to link only reviews that were posted in December or later, so this is no pre-patch shenanigans. (and I didn't even mention the jaggies or load times)

I didn't say the game isn't fun, but to say that it "couldn't get any better" is just ridiculous.

Because it is a 13 Gig patch, does not mean it will add 13 Gig to what you already have, it will overwrite some of the existing code.

The only way of knowing if it is worth it, is to see what is different after the update.

A 13 Gb patch?

That like bigger than some MMO updates.

It's pretty dumb forcing people to download some enormous DLC file that they have no access to without paying for first. Capcom could've streamlined this so only the necessary things had to be downloaded by non-purchasers. They're just being lazy.

That's just dirty.
Prime157  +   676d ago
Look, I get what taxes hardware... that many zombies really does blow your ram up. Ask me why, I don't care, nor do I get it, but the married couple I live with has one x1 in the family room... HIS x1 (weird as HE hates Sony) and two tvs and 360s in their bedroom.

Anyway, enough backstory... I get too play x1 games without buying them... dr3 is fun, but gta5 looks better, and almost acts better on the last gen. It is most certainly bigger, too. I just don't get the dr3 hype...

Edit: I hate myself for that comparison...

pyramidshead  +   675d ago
So far it's been deduced to be the DLC, whether you paid for it or not just in case you want to co-op with someone.

No improved res or graphics, sorry guys :(.
Mandatory gigantic updates(especially with my connection) is just another notch on why I'm waiting for a long while before getting an X1. Would take me a whole day to download that and it doesn't allow you to play while it's downloading OR installing....and we know how long it takes for the X1 to install stuff.

Had a whole gen of that with the Ps3. Ps4 seems to have knocked it out the park in this aspect.

I'm not sure what's the point of your comment? What relevance does him playing the game have if he is referencing others that have played the game. As if him playing the game or not bears any relevance to the articles he is linking. Do those sites lose or gain credibility based on if he has played the game or owns an Xbox One?
IcarusOne  +   675d ago

I think the relevance is when Sony boys come in here to shit on the technical aspects of an xbone game, despite the fact that it's fun as shit. Pixel counters are just so boring.
r2oB  +   675d ago
@ IcarusOne

He did not shit on anything in that post. What he did do was link to articles that shit on certain aspects of a game that could use some improvements. If the developers are focusing on DLC rather than improving stability, then that should be made aware of.
JaredH  +   675d ago
Here's the patch notes. Not much has been changed actually, but the your apparently downloading content for DLC episodes 3 and 4. Episode 1 is only releasing tomorrow so that's fairly odd.


Also, I just started to update because anb achievement I didn't get is apparently fixed now but the update started at 50%. Xbox One has way too much abstraction imo.

Hellsvacancy  +   676d ago
I really hope this isn't a new trend, a 13gb update is insane
Volkama  +   676d ago
With previous DR games Capcom took some flack for selling content that was already on the disc. At least nobody can accuse them of that on this occasion!
ITPython  +   675d ago
This better not become the norm this gen, for me a 13 GB patch would require well over 24 hours to download. Realistically about 3-4 days since my bandwidth won't be 100% dedicated to downloading the patch.

IMO a patch should seldom go over 100MB. 300MB at most. But Trojan-horsing the DLC in a patch even if people aren't going to buy the DLC is extremely lazy, and/or arrogant, on the devs part.
HugoDrax  +   675d ago
See obviously so many people on this site haven't played Dead Rising 3. For example, I can expect it to have a large patch because I have beat the game countless amounts of times.

If you played the game, you would know that once you collect 100 weapons blueprints, the count becomes 100 out of 210 weapons blueprints collected.

Second, once you collect all 10 vehicle blueprints, the count extends to 10 out of 20 weapons blueprints collected. That's not including the additional random weapons, extra clothing items, new map locations, new random vehicles, zombie types etc....

13GB patch is minimal when you think about the additional gameplay elements that will be patched in. Can't believe you gamers complaining about file sizes lol, just be happy that you're getting awesome content instead of DLC that could have been included on the disc to begin with.

Now back to playing Titanfall Alpha before it ends in 4 hours.
showtimefolks  +   676d ago
you know all the people that are so happy with always online and cloud gaming, get use to this. many publishers will release broken games only to fix later Via patches

so instead of a free beta pay full price beta test the game so people buying 3-6 months after release will get a great game

13GB come on some of us have cap limit for the internet

I think the BF3 "patches" were DLC updates. You had to update even when you did not purchase the maps. My guess was for server stability?

So many idiot on N4G...the patch itself isn't one whole 13 GBs of new code. What the developers had done is they have written and edited over existing code, the majority of the patch is already existing content. The positives of Steam is that it can add small bits of piece of new code, such as 12 mb updates, instead of the whole game file size.

I think what he means is he is nearing his cap with his ISP. He would still be downloading 13gb and that 13gb counts against his cap. His ISP isn't going to say, "oh, since it's replacing old code we won't charge you for it."

I almost want to agree with the people saying that this is all of the thus far planned DLC in the form of a patch that you will unlock later.
Unless they just 4k'd every texture in the game and added hundreds of lines of new dialogue (which didn't happen), that's the only thing that makes sense.

I noticed with the BF4 update recently that after about twenty seconds or so that it went straight to 97% and downloaded from there, so I just started Dead Rising to see if it would do the same and sure enough after about twenty seconds it went straight to 50% and is now downloading from there. I'm curious to know what is going on behind the scenes if anyone has any ideas.

According to reports coming out from official Dead Rising 3 forums and Reddit, this 13GB update is only for FIRST part of FOUR part DLC that is due for release.

Furthermore, Gamers are also reporting that the 13GB patch does not adds up with overall game size i.e NO 20+13"

Great! New missions. Cant wait to try this out.

Of course you can't add the 13 GB to the original file size ; when a game is patched, the original files are replaced. シ

This is a sad state in next gen. I agree with AnEwGuY. This policy of release a broken or glitchy game and patch it later mentality of game companies is going to get worse.
Remember the day when you bought a game and it had to work, no updates. Now I dread turning on my PS4 and seeing a update that takes 20-30 minutes to download and install.
What happens when I run out of HDD space?? Start deleting my games/apps/videos to make room, shameful!!

Looks like the entire game was recompiled, which means the version that shipped on disc was nowhere near finished.

So if we're to expect huge patches in the future, wtf didn't MS allow easy HDD swaps?
mhunterjr  +   676d ago
This patch didn't take up any extra space on the HDD. It replaced 13GB of data that came on the disc. Swappable Harddrives are irrelevant in this case.
snookiegamer  +   675d ago
Oh okay ...thanks for clearing that up for me :)


I still feel MS made a bad design choice regarding the HDD. External HDD's will eventually solve the problem...but I'm pretty sure most would prefer to upgrade internally.

Nothing less than 1TB will be sufficient on both PS4/Xbox One because of the size of installs.

Don't waste your time explaining. Its a N4G M $ cycle jerk bash.
mhunterjr  +   675d ago
I can't argue against a bigger HDDs, but I dispute the notion that most people would prefer swappable to external. I think part of the reason folks choose consoles is because they don't have to get into the internals. I think the more tech savy will be swapping their HDDs on PS4. The more casuals probably won't be getting their next gen consoles until the HDDs are bigger anyway. External will be an easy solution for everyone else.
snookiegamer  +   675d ago
Interesting choice of words 'I can't argue' as if you're disappointed you can't, and 'Dispute', It's only a statement I made that you chose to answer. There is no 'dispute', it comes down to my personal opinion and experience.

Also, you go on to state 'I think most folks...' which shows your not even sure of what you're talking about.

Maybe PS owners are different, since we've always been able to upgrade our HDD's with whatever HDD brand we want, and most PS owners DO. MS has not provided that option so maybe the folks you speak of lay in that camp.

Finally, you don't need to be tech savvy to swap PS3/4 HDD's, it's as easy as replacing a fuse to a plug. I don't know who waits for bigger HDD options before buying a console. Folks usually pick what's available at the time.

You started off well, then ended with nonsense and conjecture. I'll probably note your username and avoid replying to you in the future, because you seem like one of those people that just wants to be correct and uses N4G to show how smart you think you are. Really you're actually just defensive for no reason. Nobody is attacking Xbox.
#28.2.1 (Edited 675d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(0) | Report
mhunterjr  +   675d ago
I'm not sure why your putting words in my mouth. 'I can't argue' means 'I can't argue'. Meaning there is no valid argument against what you said. There's not disappointment what-so-ever, just total agreement with the fact that a larger Harddrives would be preferable. So I agreed with part of your comment and disagreed (ie 'disputed') with the other . I don see what's so interesting with that choice of words. Nor did I "dispute" a personal preference. I disputed your assumption that "most people would prefer swappable"

Me saying "I think" is no different that you saying "I'm pretty sure"... Both are extrapolations based on our own personal experience. I'm not sure how mine implies I don't know what I'm talking about, but yours implies you are somehow knowledgeable.

My experience is that many ps4 owners don't swap their Harddrives. Many people I know bought them late enough to get Harddrives big enough for their needs. I don't know a single person who has done it. In fact I know quite a few who didn't even know it was possible. (Probably because they aren't tech savy) I didn't say you need to be tech savy to swap it out. I just think the folks who bother with it are more likely to be tech savy.

Finally, I really don't know why you found my comment so offensive. I thought we were having a friendly conversation. I didn't know I would be striking a cord by disagreeing. I didn't think I said anything mean or insulting or condescending, if you felt that way I sincerely apologize. I also don't feel I was being defensive at all, and I didn't see your comment as an attack on Xbox (nor would I be offended of it was) I too think swappable HDDs would be ideal (at least for me). I just don't think that the majority of console gamers would be bothered with it.

@snookiegamer... MS is adding (as they have gone on record stating) the ability to add on an external drive vs swapping out an internal drive. Its two different approaches for sure.

On the Sony side (my understanding) is you have to swap out the new drive for old drive, format it, then re-download or install any content you want to keep from the old drive.

On the MS front, it appears (again based on what they said) you will just be adding an additional drive to your system via USB 3.0. All data on the existing harddrive will still be accessible. Its not a replacement drive but rather an additional drive.

I DLed it. It started at 50% and went to like 70% or something like that let me play it. Took like 35-40 minutes.

Mines downloaded without me knowing. I saw this post checked DR3 and it was ready for install. I think it only added a little over 1 gig to my game install. I did notice this game is now doing some type of temporal AA. Moving the camera in certain angles I'm seeing that blur Halo Reach had from its AA technique.

Any who trollers must be bored if a damn DLC and patch update is getting this much attention. I mean can anybody be surprise patches and DLC content are coming in over 10 gigs when game installs are starting to average over 30 gigs?

Microsoft, you can't make the Xbox One's hard drive memory locked in tight at 500GB, then let Capcom pull something like this.
