While Deadrising 4 will be bringing back Frank West and the original setting of the first game, Willamette Colorado, Capcom Vancouver will be leaving something behind in the next entry of the comedic Zombie-Slaying title. The series’ infamous Countdown timer.
That’s right, one of the series more annoying feature will be removed from Deadrising 4 in favour of focusing on the open-world aspects of the game. However, like the never-ending hoard of zombies, it is a feature that just won’t stay dead. Capcom announced that the timer will return in a special DLC Challenge called Frank Rising, which players will have to survive with a Zombie Infection and find a cure before time runs out.
The official synopsis:
In this DLC, Frank West is freshly infected and needs to find a cure before he becomes a zombie and is lost forever. While searching for a cure, Frank discovers that everything is not the same as it was; zombies are getting smarter, people cannot be trusted and paramilitary forces are plotting to wipe out Willamette. Frank has a limited time before he reverts to the full zombie state and the city is wiped out. Frank will have to get to the truth first… or die trying.
Of course this isn’t the only bit of DLC announced for the upcoming game, as the Season Pass and the Deluxe Edition (priced at $24.99 and $79.99 USD respectfully) will feature some more crazy antics with “Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf.”
You’ve mastered the outbreak – now it’s time to master the green, with eighteen holes of pure wanton destruction you can play with up to three friends online. Flip zombies the birdie where bloodthirsty, over the top zombie mayhem is par for the course. The world of Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf is extreme and the fairways are the town of Willamette, Colorado, including the iconic Willamette Memorial Megaplex Mall. Use Frank West’s favorite weapons as your set of golf clubs. With an oversized golf ball, drive down the fairways, reaching for the green to nail the perfect putt. Watch your score as you do not want to bogey in this zombie filled eighteen-hole golf course. Mini golf is made crazier with the zombie horde as obstructions and hazards.
DeadRising 4 will be out on December 6th 2016 for Xbox One and PC.
