Los Peridos, California and it’s three days into the worldwide outbreak in Capcom’s Dead Rising 3, another Xbox One exclusive. Yup, it’s another zombie game, but continuing on with Dead Rising’s on-the-fly zombie combat.
There’s a big open world city with no load times, but also filled with the density of a real city… oh, and lots and lots and lots of zombies.
Our car mechanic protagonist, Nick Ramos, brings with him weapon customisation comes back showing off a pistol and flashlight combo, whilst flares act as a nifty distraction to get out of a tight spot. Hand to hand also features quite heavily with all sorts of combos and special attacks. It all looks like it will be a lot of fun for fans of the first two.
Oh, and Smart Glass comes into play for calling in artillery support, to clear a particularly tricky section.
Dead Rising 3 is set for a holiday release, this year.
