Branching paths will allow for different outcomes depending on player choices.
Dead Rising 3 producer Mike Jones has recently confirmed that the game, set to launch alongside the Xbox One on November 22nd worldwide, will feature multiple endings and an Overtime mode similar to its predecessors.
Speaking to OXM, he stated that, “I think typically we’ve always had about somewhere between six and 10, something like that. There’s a handful of branching points that make a significant difference, and whether you’re able to play beyond the normal timeline or not.
“Previous Dead Risings would always have modes like the Overtime mode, where you get to discover the truth behind everything that’s been going on. So there’s not just the six days, we’re going beyond that if you make the right story decisions. So it’s not like choose-your-own-adventure crazy infinite endings, there’s a finite amount, but they all [correspond to] meaningful story decisions that you make as you play through.”
It was earlier revealed that Dead Rising 3 could probably be the most difficult game in the series, depending on how the player wants to approach things (such as, say, adhering to the timer restriction).
