Releasing in 2006, the original Dead Rising was praised as being one of the more unique and interesting open world survival games to release. Since then, every entry in the series has received a positive reception, including the Xbox One launch title Dead Rising 3.
After a brief intro, action picks up quick as franchise star Frank West encounters another zombie outbreak at Willamette Mall. Fans will recognize this place as the original setting for the first Dead Rising game. But unlike previous titles, Dead Rising 4 won’t feature a timer system.
As a timed-exclusive, Dead Rising 4 will release first on Xbox One and Windows 10 first. Those who own other gaming platforms won’t get to return to Willamette, Colorado for another 15 months.
