The third installment in Dead Rising 3, one of the most popular zombie game franchises ever, with more than 5.4 million units sold worldwide to date, is coming this November as an Xbox One exclusive, Capcom has just announced. Set 10 years after the events of “Dead Rising 2,” “Dead Rising 3” takes place in the vast city of Los Perdidos amid a nationwide zombie outbreak that’s on the brink of decimating mankind.
The story follows Nick Ramos, a young mechanic with a strange tattoo and a mysterious past who must find a way to escape a city full of thousands of bloodthirsty zombies before an impending military strike wipes the city and everyone in it off the map. But Nick can’t do it alone — he must join up with other survivors to stay alive and fight their way out before it’s too late.
Dead Rising 3 is an open-world game and will have no load times. Anything can be a weapon, and like in Dead Rising 2, weapons can be crafted or upgraded. Players can drive vehicles, and driving is a “critical part of exploration.” Zombies will attempt to break windows and pull you out of your vehicle. Capcom also revealed that Dead Rising 3 will also feature SmartGlass integration.
