Dead Rising 3 is exclusively coming to the Xbox One. The game will star a new main character, Nick Ramos, and take place in the dusty border town of Los Perdidos.
Dead Rising 3 looks to add more zombies to the series than ever before and more gunplay too. But don’t worry, improvised melee weapons (like a mini-chainsaw) are still available. Owing to its “open world” nature, Dead Rising 3 will also include a much bigger emphasis on vehicles than ever before. And SmartGlass support will allow players to perform bigger actions such as calling in an air strike.
Capcom Vancouver showed the first gameplay footage of Dead Rising 3 during the Microsoft Press Conference and it matches up pretty closely with a rumor report from December 2011. So Dead Rising 3 has probably been in development for a few years now.
It’s scheduled to be a launch title for the Xbox One.
