My friend is going to fucking kill me for this.

Some info:

- NOT being developed by Capcom Vancouver. They wanted to move onto other projects, an entirely different studio is working on this one.

- Began early production back in late 2015, CV was done with Dead Rising after 3 but Capcom had them shit out DR4 using almost entirely old assets for the ten year anniversary

- Just called 'Dead Rising', for now. Not a reboot, but a complete return to form and almost a 'reset' of sorts for the franchise.

- Puts you in a college town with three separate sectors, the college, the town, and a mall

- Takes place 25 years after the original. You play as a photojournalism student named Jack who is infamous for his conspiracy theories that he writes in the college paper. He sees the outbreak as an opportunity to win big and get "the scoop"

- VERY similar to the original Dead Rising. Time limit is back, and it is tough. Players will have to give up on certain side quests/pick and choose what to do. 100% in a single playthrough IS possible apparently, but only at higher levels.

- Psychos are back, very similar to the first game. Focused more on normal people who have gone insane rather than flamboyant/sexualized/cartoony villains


- No characters from previous games appear, however Frank West is apparently mentioned frequently

- DR4 is not canon, at least in this game's timeline. Willamette is referenced heavily as still being gated off after the events of the first game

- Photography makes a return, as well as the ability to question and interrogate certain characters. This is used in the story but is also used in side missions

- Survivor escorts are back, but the AI isn't retarded like the original. Also they only take up about half of the side missions, the other half go into investigatory work and lore

I will try to answer questions as best I can.
>>
Very interesting if this is real
>>
DR3 is canon and there was a cure. So if dead rising 4 isn't Canon what's the case here.
>>
I don't believe you but bumping because this could be good.
>>
>>386766170
Don't get my hopes up fucker.
>>386766647
Also this.
>inb4 muh new strain
>>
>>386766170
sounds too good for me, I'm not belive this.
>>
>>386766647
DR3 is canon. In this game there's an entirely new zombie virus with a new origin story. Has nothing to do with Santa Cabeza or the Keyes.

DR4 is not canon because in retrospect it kind of fucked a lot of lore, lore that this team wanted to work with for side content

>New strain creates more varied and inventive enemy types.
>NOT developed by CV.
Sign me the fuck up.
>>
>>386766913
And why was this strain made? Zombrex makers behind it?
>>
>>386766954
If they're gonna pull the "new strain" shit and create new archetypes, they better be better than DR4's. Fuck the new archetypes in that game were lame.

hey idiot your shit isn't blurry or dutch angle enough, here i fixed it
>>
>>386767000
And who are the devs making this and is anyone from dead rising 1-3 involved? Æ
>>
>>386767000
I can't get into it without spoiling the story, which I'm not doing. It's like the first game, there are Case files and the truth is slowly unveiled.
>>
>>386766170
It sounds good but it's hard for me to think such a good game will be created by the same company that created cancer like SFV, MvCI, DR4 and MHW.
>>
>>386767017
They were as close to recolors as you could get. I wouldn't mind if they pulled inspiration from Left 4 Dead 2 for some new enemies. It could make for some great combat scenarios and make you think harder how to avoid them to manage time.
>>
>>386766170
>zombie games
>2017
>>
>>386767017
Apparently it's similar to the first game, except zombies must be killed by damaging the brain. Also they become powerful as fuck at night and running into a swarm will almost certainly lead to death
>>
Any co op elements? Had a blast playing through 3 with a friend.
>>
>>386767287
The new zombie virus is definitely based on the one the wasps give then and not entirely new.
>>
>>386767051
I didn't even make that, it's the only thing my friend would send me.

I begged him to give me something, that's all I got. It's probably not even real honestly
>>
When can we expect any official info?
>>
>>386767168
Can't believe that there's some people out there with this much cancer to call MHW shit
>>
>>386767315
2 player co-op returns. No other form of multiplayer
>>
>>386767287
Only damaging the brain? That can't be right. That'd make combat restrictive.
>>
>>386767472
Fuck if I know dude. They wouldn't give that up.

I'm wagering E3 next year based on how long it's been in development and how far along they are
>>
>>386767473
Go figure, I triggered the Capcum shill lurking the thread.
>>
>>386767534
The zombies will still fall or become immobile if you damage other areas but they can attack you from the ground if you don't finish them off
>>
what platforms op?
>>
>>386767501
AWWWW YEEEEEA
>>
>>386767119
Capcom Japan and Vancouver both contributed to development in some way. But it's almost entirely new people
>>
>>386767776
X One. I think they're trying to get it onto Steam/PS4 at a later date
>>
>>386767812
Hm I see. If all of this is true I am buying no doubts and it will likely sell quite well. But I don't see why they'd spend all the money on making dead rising 4 and at the same time make this game.
>>
>>386767957
DR4 was actually originally just a remake of the original, but CV wanted to do something different. It was in development for less than a year, apparently it was a fucking mess
>>
>>386767957
>But I don't see why they'd spend all the money on making dead rising 4 and at the same time make this game.
Looks like they didn't really spent that much on it, i feel like Microsoft wanted a game for the holiday season so they shit it out
>>
Also, combo weapons are back. But they're scaled down. More realistic and gritty like DR2.

No combo vehicles to my knowledge
>>
>>386768350
Is DR2 referenced at all?
>>
>>386768631
Not during the story, but there are a few side missions that go into it apparently
>>
>>386767909
At least the Windows Store will have it at launch. :^)

Please don't play with my heart!

I'm going back into my corner now a wait for this to happen.
>>
>>386766170
is it coming to switch?
>>
>>386766170
Making a game like that in the current year would be a humongous risk. They wouldn't do it.

What do you think?
>>
I mean, I hope this is true.
DR1 is one of the greatest games of all time.
I just don't want to get my hopes up.

Though I rather enjoyed 2, each of the mainline games has still been a step down from the last.
I could take DR1 seriously to a degree but the rest of them just got further and further off the rails.
>>
>>386768350
>combo weapons more like DR2
Thank fucking god
