However, it depends on how you want to play it.
Exclusive to the Xbox One and launching alongside the console on November 22nd worldwide, Dead Rising 3 marks a grittier approach to the series zombie bashing. While the game will be more action-oriented and open world in natue, producer Mike Jones has also revealed that it’s perhaps the toughest game they’ve ever made.
“It’s probably the most difficult Dead Rising game we’ve ever made. We wanted to sort of have our cake and eat it, serve both kinds of gamers,” he stated to OXM during Gamescom.
However, it all depends on what the player wants. “I’m the kind of gamer who just wants to be chilled, who doesn’t want to be on a timer or a schedule, but a lot of Dead Rising fans love that timer, and love that save system, and they love breaking controllers, I guess – throwing them against the wall. So if you’re a masochist, we’re not going to ruin it for you.”
Given that Capcom talked about making an action experience similar to Call of Duty, it’s good to hear that they aren’t sacrificing what made the series unique in favour of the same. Will it make for a better game? We’ll find out this November.
