E3: Dead Rising 4 gameplay

E3: Dead Rising 4 gameplay

Dead Rising 4 is playable at Microsoft's booth, and even though the trailer from a few days ago made it look like it was back to its source this gameplay video shows a game much more like Dead Rising 3 than anticipated. We'll see, I guess.
Update: Added a second video.

E3: Off-screen gameplay

Are there any new mechanics except the armor?

I really miss the first Dead Risings gameplay, this is just...I don't know. The first one had some ridiculous things, but they were based in reality and at least had enough serious tones to balance it out, but they basically said "Fuck it" after the 2nd game. Now it's pretty much just all ridiculous.

It was nice to see that a more serious (Days Gone) zombie game was in development, cause despite their being tons of zombie games out right now, not enough are out to do justice to the amazing stories that can come out of this genre like The Last of Us. Dead Rising started off strong from the first one, but now it is just wasted potential. Personally, I feel this is such a shame, as it really has a lot going for it.

Pretty much this. They will never top the original game. I skipped DR3 without even thinking, it looked meh.

Really/. Running on the heads of zombies wasn't ridiculous? DR1 was completely ridiculous. So was 2 and 3. They just kicked it up a notch. I don't understand your argument. Seems stupid to me.

    GriftGFX I'll miss Visceral but I won't miss a title that was probably in an awful state. No reason to assume we're being robbed of anything quality. (4 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They probably missed loads of milestones for it to have shuttered the studio. Even if they're "abandoning" single player, which sounds like a hot-take to me. (5 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth next bioware game also being a destiny-type game, it's starting to look like EA is abandoning the traditional single-player genre (17 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth make "an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come".. which i'm just guessing is more like Destiny, Division. (23 minutes ago)

    KORNdog Even hired amy hennig too, guess we won't see the fruits of that labour now. (25 minutes ago)
