Dead Rising is an action-adventure, survival horror video game with RPG elements developed by Capcom and produced by Keiji Inafune. Developed as an exclusive tittle for the Xbox 360 video game console, in July 2008, it was announced that the game would be remade for the Wii console under the name Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.
It was released on August 8, 2006 in North America and in Japan on September 28, 2006. The game was a commercial success. It has been introduced into the Xbox 360 “Platinum Hits” lineup, and a cell phone version has recently been released. A sequel, to be developed by Blue Castle Games alongside many of the previous developers of Dead Rising, is currently under production.
The story of the game centers on Frank West. A photojournalist who ends up trapped in a shopping mall in the fictional town of Willamette, Colorado, that is infested with zombies. Frank must defend himself from zombie attacks, rescue survivors and avoid crazed psychopaths. And of course to stay alive while still attempting to uncover the truth behind the incident.
The player controls Frank as he explores the mall, using any available object as a weapon. The player can complete several main and optional missions to earn Prestige Points (PP) and gain special abilities. The game is designed as a sandbox game and features several endings, depending on the decisions the player makes along the way.
On September 13th, Triple Pack is coming out for PC, Play Station 4 and Xbox One. The triple bundle pack will be a pack with the following games: Dead Rising, Dead Rising: Off the Record and Dead Rising 2. Pre-order will cost 49.99$.
