The Dead Rising 3 wiki last edited by BigJeffrey on 12/26/14 10:21PM View full history

Overview

Still the crazy, zombie-infested Dead Rising you know.

Dead Rising 3 is a third-person action-adventure survival horror game developed by Capcom Vancouver and published by Capcom for the Xbox One (as a launch title) on November 22, 2013. It is the third original installment and the fifth overall release in the Dead Rising franchise. A PC version of Dead Rising 3 that includes all four DLC packs, dubbed Apocalypse Edition, is set to release on September 5, 2014.

Set 10 years after the events of Dead Rising 2, players control Nick Ramos, a mechanic (with a mysterious past) who must escape the fictional zombie-infested city of Los Perdidos, California before an impending military strike.

Along with the Combo Weapon feature from Dead Rising 2 (though now it no longer requires a workbench), the game features a new Combo Vehicle feature (allowing players to create new crazy vehicles), the choice of removing both the traditional countdown timers and restricted game saving (putting them in a new "hardcore" difficulty), a larger open-world map (with minimal loading time between locations), Kinect voice support, and SmartGlass integration.

The game was one of the three Xbox One games (along with Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5) to have a limited "Day One" edition, which adds chrome-looking cover art and a special piece of DLC. This edition of Dead Rising 3 includes the "Tribute Pack" DLC, which includes outfits based on the franchise's previous two protagonists (each including unique bonus attributes).

Gameplay

Cones Everywhere

Like its predecessors, Dead Rising 3 introduces more weapon variety and more weapon combinations. In past iterations of Dead Rising, a workbench was required when combining weapons; in Dead Rising 3, however, workbenches are no longer required and combinations can be put into effect anywhere in the world.

In the attempt to make the game more accessible to series newcomers, Dead Rising 3 has removed the countdown timer, which was a series staple, and bathrooms are no longer required to save one's game progress. Though these modes can be reintroduced with the "hardcore" game difficulty.

Survivors return, this time a player can command them to defend and scavenge for items. Located through out the world, psychopaths make their return in Dead Rising 3.

Cooperative Mode

Nick and Dick ready for action

Coop will return to Dead Rising 3, here players can jump in an out the session at any time. In previous Dead Rising titles players are both Chuck Greene, in Dead Rising 3 one player will be Nick Ramos and the other player will take control of Dick. There is no local coop for Dead Rising 3. Both players can go anywhere in the world as they are not anchored to each other. When in coop players can go through the main story arc toghether, or complete side missions together, both players will level up by earning PP and unlock that specific mission.

Kinect Integration

The Kinect sensor will alert zombies in game whenever you make loud noises in real life or turn on a light in real life. Voice commands can be used to taunt your enemy and give commands to survivors, for example a player can physically point towards a specific place and say "Go There" to a survivor.

Smartglass Integration

Here is a great place to call in a air strike

The game features Smartglass exclusive characters, new weapons and exclusive missions. For example a air strike can be called when being over run by the horde. A player can use their smartglass device to answer the phone calls and recieve text messages. Mission check lists track mission progressions.

Maps help a player find certain location and help locate hidden items. A smartglass news ticker will give a player updates on the outside world and the zombie horde. There are specific crates around the world that require smartglass, inside there are items for the player to salvage.

World Map

Unlike the past Dead Rising games, Dead Rising 3 will feature a full open world. The map of Dead Rising 3 is bigger than both Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 combined several times over, offering no loading times when entering a new area. Every building in the world is accessible and contains items.
