Since Dead Rising 4 released on 6th December, players have killed over seven billion zombies, eclipsing the population of planet Earth.
To offer current players more mayhem in Frank’s world, we’re introducing two new game difficulty modes and releasing a Street Fighter outfit pack, both free to all players. This is accompanied by a patch fixing several bugs we’ve been tracking since launch.
To attract new players to Dead Rising 4, we are also releasing a one hour timed trial.
The mayhem continues with two all-new difficulty modes
For players looking for a bigger challenge, we are introducing two new difficulty settings for Story Mode for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. The two new levels scale in difficulty from hard to ultra-hard. Playing either of the new modes will earn players new gamerscore and achievements (“Chopping Spree” and “Biters Remorse”).
Frank will need to be a lot more careful and aware of his surroundings when trying to survive on a higher difficulty. Enemies do more damage; Frank’s weapons break faster and food restores less health than before. The new difficulty modes will be available to players on 30th January.
Frank West Meets Street Fighter
Frank West has always had a love for flair, and as the world’s best zombie slayer we’re equipping him with a new outfit collection befitting his stature. Xbox One and Windows 10 PC players will be able to download five outfits from the ultimate fighting game series, Street Fighter, including Cammy, Guile, M. Bison, T. Hawk and Zangief.
While in game, just visit your wardrobe and you will find these five outfits for your ultimate zombie fighting experience. The outfits will be available in game on 30th January.
Play for Free with Limited Timed Trial
For those that have yet to face Dead Rising 4, we’re excited to announce the availability of a 60-minute timed trial experience for Xbox One. The trial will allow new players to earn achievements and carry saved game progress into the full game should they decide to purchase at the end of the trial period. Players can experience both single player Story Mode as well as Multiplayer during the trial period.
The timed trial experience will be available from 31st January.
