Nowadays, the average mall is a pretty desolate place filled with just a few lethargic customers, but a really good shopping center can still knock ’em dead. And that’s just the way Frank West likes them.
Frank is back this Fall in Dead Rising 4, which was officially announced for the PC and Xbox One today during Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference. While rumors have pointed to Frank’s return for a few weeks now, it’s nice to know for sure.
In addition to the announcement trailer embedded above, the Capcom-Unity blog shared a few details about Frank’s new assignment and the new zombies he’ll face:
Frank is back in Willamette, Colorado sixteen 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 will face new undead enemies, including the Fresh – newly zombified victims that will turn in front of his eyes and exhibit superior speed and ferocity, and the Evo – zombies with superior strength and mobility that mimic the behavior of predatory hunting animals.
He’s covered wars, and Frank will be able to become a one-man-army in Dead Rising 4. In addition to his weapon creation skills, Frank can don an EXO Suit and deliver a superpowered punch to the undead.
Dead Rising 4 will include online cooperative multiplayer for up to four players when it launches this Fall, but Capcom has promised we’ll learn more about the game this Summer.
