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.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (18 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (19 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (20 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (22 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (22 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (23 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (24 minutes ago)
