Dead Rising 2 : Clothes make the man

Dead Rising 2 : Clothes make the man

Capcom has announced 4 thematic packs for Dead Rising 2: the 'Psychopath' theme pack will be out on October 12th, the 'Soldier of Fortune' theme pack on October 19th, the 'Sports' theme pack on October 26th and finally the 'Ninja' theme pack will be available on November 2nd. In addition to the new costumes and new weapons it brings, those DLC will increase some of Chuck's abilities. You could also mix elements from each pack to create the ultimate zombie killer! We have no info about pricing but you will find more details after the click.


Psychopath Theme Pack: Available October 12, 2010
Psycho Chuck will be a zombie’s worst nightmare as his new “insane” look will make him more difficult to kill and give him a host of gruesome weapons including chainsaws, cleavers, axes and more. Zombies won’t stand a chance!


Soldier of Fortune Theme Pack: Available October 19, 2010
With the soldier costume, you can “Rambo out” with double ammo, increased shooting accuracy, more firepower and increased headshot accuracy. Chuck will also have a new special attack when using automatic weapons, spraying zombies with a hail of bullets.


Sports Theme Pack: Available October 26, 2010
For all you sports fans out there, this pack’s for you. Chuck’s damage will increase with sports-themed weapons. The new sports weapons (golf balls, basketballs, etc.) bounce more before stopping, allowing you to hit tons of zombies in one throw. Chuck also has a new charge/tackle attack for taking zombies down in the ultimate blitz!

With the Sports Theme Pack, Chuck will also earn more from gambling, gain more health while eating and drinking (especially alcoholic drinks) and not get sick from drinking too much...


Ninja Theme Pack: Available November 2, 2010
Ninja Chuck will have a new “stealth mode” where the zombies have to be much closer to him to detect his presence. This gives Chuck the upper hand as he is harder to grab and be taken down by hoards of the undead.

Chuck’s damage is increased with sword-type weapons (broadswords, katanas, etc.) that have new special attacks. Stackable items and throwing items (nails, plates, gems, etc.) will also do more damage and Chuck’s throwing speed is increased.

i just cant get enough of this selling us a game in chunks. It's awesome. Capcoms definately leading the way to a bigger brighter future for games.. not only have the charged seperately for the begining and the end of the game, i now get to buy alternative costumes outside of the game.

I look forward to other games selling me the first level seperate from the main game - mark my words..it's coming.

This is stupid...I've had all these dlc pieces for 2 week now and I cant use them. If it wasnt out until later, dont let us dl them and make it look like they dont exist! They've been on PSN for that long and they are free, but the game doesnt see them! LAME!

Those free downloads are not the actual costume packs. They only allow you to play with someone in co-op that has them. The actual costume packs won't be free.

Just stop buying Crapcom's games and they'll get the picture. Apparently they've been losing money lately, and for good reason.
