Our videos of Dead Rising 4

Because we were only sent our copy of Dead Rising 4 on Saturday evening, we could only prepare a few videos in time for the end of the embargo. Inside, you'll find gameplay footage recorded on Xbox One (the PC version is strangely nowhere to be found, even on the game's store page). Enjoy!

I feel there is barely any hype for this. Is it just me? A Dead rising launch used to be a big deal

The first one maybe, not that sure about the others though.

Yup. The first had zombie game novelty on its side back when the market wasn't painfully saturated by them. The second was outsourced and was shit, the 3rd looked and ran like crap and the 4th doesn't look much better (also wtf have they done to frank?) .

It could have been a great franchise, but they kinda shot themselves in the foot when they didn't even want to make a sequel themselves and passed the responsibility onto some crappy third party studio instead...but apparently capcom liked the results since they bought them.

The franchise has never been massive really.

Some people are pissed that they changed the voice actor of Frank.

They say that Frank has matured but he acts like an immature teen running around taking selfies with zombies.

They seem too be making the game more casual. Removing the cutscenes and storylines for Psychos making them more generic and renaming them Maniacs.

The studio director has mostly worked on shitty Kinect games before coming to Capcom Vancouver. The executive producer has worked at 343 on Halo 4 and at EA Sports with Fifa games. These two along with with the art director has zero experience in previous Dead Rising games.

The throw around buzzword "Frank is back" a lot when he is clearly totally different from the first game.

There's probably other reasons too.

they messed up the series after the first one, whats with the crazy colorful pallette, it deters from wanting to play it, real life aint that dark or colorful, too many special effects, too many flashing colorful things.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (30 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
