Capcom’s Dead Rising 4 – AKA “that game where you take selfies with dead people LOL” – will be a timed exclusive on Microsoft platforms, and presumably out on other platforms a year after a launches this holiday season. That makes it the first Dead Rising since, uh, the second Dead Rising to get a multi-platform release.
The news comes via developer Capcom Vancouver on Twitter, who confirmed that we’ll “play it first” on Xbox One and PC, but did not confirm what other platforms it’s coming to after that. What a tease.
Dead Rising 4 sees the return of original Dead Rising protagonist Frank West (FRAAANK WEEEST!), who for some inexplicable reason has decided to go back to the mall in Willamette, Colorodo, where it all started. Must be a big sale on or something, but I’m guessing prices won’t be the only things SLASHED and HALF OFF and BITING AT YOUR FACE. Never had prices biting at your face? You’ve obviously not been at Canal Walk on Christmas Eve.
