Dead Rising: Hands-On and New Screens

Dead Rising gives you full control of a shopping center to protect a group of freelance journalists from zombies. The variety of different stores in the mall offers players an endless supply of resources including vehicles, makeshift weapons and more. Players will also encounter other survivors along the way and by helping them can acquire valuable clues as to what has happened.

Earlier this week Gamespot had an opportunity to spend some time with the game, you can read their hands-on impression after the jump. For a bunch of new screens scroll down to the image section below.

Is there Xbox live on this game, I'm really looking forward to this title?

crazyman6534d ago

nope no live for this game its single player only

bernie6534d ago

Nice find, I've got this pre-ordered it looks like a hell of a lot of fun, and unlockable gameplay modes, that enable unlimited time just to enjoy yourself in the mall, is perfect!

So this game is completely single player? No co-op or anything? I was looking forward to this as a "party game". My friend's aren't really into gaming but bashing zombies with garbage cans is fun for all. I just wish there was a 2-player mode even if it was story-less and just random exploration.

Shame loved the Dead Rising series. Even enjoyed 4 but not sure why they removed the campain co op.

A zombie lover like me will always wait for a new Dead Rising.

Dead rising 1 was one of my favorite games back in the day. I never got into the others like I did DR1. DR2 was ok but 3 and 4 were kinda lame.

Absolutely agree with you 100%. 1 was A MASTERPIECE even though it had several things that were not that good. But still a very solid title. And the ending was EPIC.

I agree. I’ll never forget grinding the zombies in the parking tunnels to get the mega buster weapon. Its uniqueness will always stand out to me and is high up on my all-times.

When I got over the rather bland art direction of Dead Rising 3, I actually fell in love with that one. Dead Rising 4 on the other hand.... :(

It's a real shame the Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX + Alpha DLC isn't available on PC. It was one of the best DLCs I've ever played, it was so fun! But alas... I no longer have my Xbox One :(

I should give it another try on the newer Xbox controllers. I remember jumping over to the Xbox controller was a big peeve for me. I loved the 360 controller and dead rising was one of my very first games on it. The Xbox one controller felt cheaply and loose and it bugged me. I don’t feel that way with the series x one.

Never played 3 or 4 but I read they weren't the same. As for 1 I guess the character played the "path of the hero" so well, no other title could keep it up with. 2 had to have another instance with Frank. And that's what I loved about the first: Frank was a good for nothing and still was the hero. He was not funny, he was not the hero everybody wanted. He was just there "for a good story". And the psychos..... my goodness!! Adam, the snipers, the three prisoners on the garden, the cult! MY GOODNESS!

Good Riddance. Capcom Vancouver's entries are a big stain on what was a great, charming game series.

The ideas shown here are the pinnacle of their ineptness. Yeah, let's remove items on the ground, a core mechanic to the franchise, and one that people would show they still love in BOTW 2 years later.


Dead Rising Is Proof That Sometimes You Shouldn’t Listen To Feedback

TheGamer Writes "Dead Rising first burst onto the scene 16 years ago. At the time the game was a groundbreaking technical achievement, and a great showpiece for the then-new Xbox 360 due to how many zombies it could cram onto the screen at once. However, it was more than a mere tech-demo. Dead Rising captivated fans with engaging gameplay that allowed you to use almost anything as a weapon, packing that choice with unique bosses and an iconic protagonist in Frank West."

I loved DR1 and 2. 3 was pretty decent, but 4 was just bad.
