During Microsoft’s Media Briefing at E3, Capcom Vancouver’s Dead Rising 4 was finally announced, coming exclusively to Xbox One and Windows 10 this fall.
Developed by Capcom Vancouver, Dead Rising 4 sees the triumphant return of Frank West, Dead Rising 1’s protagonist. An announcement trailer for the fourth title in the survival horror series was released and information regarding the storyline has since been made public, you can check out that information and the new screenshots along with the announcement trailer for Dead Rising 4 below.
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.
As Frank seeks to uncover the truth behind the outbreak, he faces new undead enemies, including the Fresh – newly zombified victims that will turn in front of his eyes, and exhibit superior speed and ferocity. He also has to tangle with the Evo – zombies with superior strength and mobility that mimic the behavior of predatory hunting animals.
Dead Rising 4 will see the return of many popular features from previous Dead Rising games alongside the introduction of all-new EXO Suits, giving Frank super-strength and incredible firepower, as well as the ability to rip down objects in the world to use as weapons.
Capcom Vancouver will also introduce a new approach to multiplayer, allowing players to play together with four friends to complete missions and conquer the zombie-infested Willamette Memorial Megaplex.
Dead Rising 4 releases this holiday on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC.
