Dead Rising 3 an Xbox One exclusive

Third title in the Dead Rising series will be released this holiday season.

by

Capcom has announced Dead Rising 3 as an Xbox One exclusive.

The game was unveiled at Microsoft's E3 2013 press conference. Dead Rising 3 is being developed by Capcom Vancouver and will be set three days after a zombie outbreak in the city of Los Perdidos. A bigger, more open world than that seen in Dead Rising 2 and 1 will be a big part of the game.

The game will also make use of Microsoft's SmartGlass, with SmartGlass being used in the demonstration to call down artillery support on a group of zombies.

Weapon crafting and customisation will return from Dead Rising 2, with one weapon shown slicing a zombie vertically after being thrown. Driving also appears to play a more major role than in previous games, due to Dead Rising 3's larger, more-open world.

Capcom adds that there are no loading times when moving around the city.

Dead Rising 3 will be released this holiday season.

The original Dead Rising was launched as an Xbox 360 exclusive in 2006. The sequel, Dead Rising 2, was released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2010. A director's cut of the second game, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, was released in 2011.

This is the only exclusive xBone Game I'd like to play, it's a shame it doesn't come to PC or PS4. Still not going to get a SpyBox at Launch

Wonder if there will be a PC version.  When they say exclusive, do they mean not on PS4?

XBOX ONE gonna wipe the floor with the PS$. Sorry Sony crack lickers, you lose again. And with Halo 5 coming, say goodbye to Sony ever being first in the console market again

Game looks horrible (for a Dead Rising fan)
It clearly lacks the subtle comedy of the franchise. No japanese flair at all, just dull western action shit.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

FINALLY! Dead Rising has thrown out it's PATHETIC childish tone and adopted a full adult seriousness! I hope the other games are simply burned out of continuity.

That's a shame. Could be a good game but no game is worth owning an Xbone over.

Capcom took a timed exclusive deal...they have done that before with Lost Planet and other games...I thought the graphics were 360ish to be honest, so I wasn't impressed with the game's look, but it should be fun enough.

Release all the exclusives you want. Even after 5 of your systems broke on me (the last one a month after the warranty expired. Geez that pissed me off) and hearing the Microsoft rep at the Best Buy tell me that MS was doing Mickey Mouse jobs of fixing the systems; and it showed. I will not give in to these shady business practices. I own what I pay for screw what your lawyers say. And to those saying "It won't happen." about your games being unattainable after the servers are gone  read this and say that with a straight face http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2008/04/drm-sucks-redux-microsoft-to-nuke-msn-music-drm-keys/

Its funny to read X1 fans desperately trying to reason with poeple why they are actually going to buy this console and be okay with all the personal rights Microsoft is going to violate.

I can pull up articles on this website where all the X1 fanboys are raging on Capcom because of how they got fucked over with Street Fighter x Tekken characters.


Now they are like "Dead Rising 3....XCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Thank you for being a part of the next Video Game Crash.

Hrmmmm...piss away $500 on a worthless Xbox One so I can play Dead Rising 3 ooooooor...wait for them to release Dead Rising 3: Stop the Presses! edition staring Frank West with more weapons, a better story and enhanced graphics for the PC a year later? 

Yeah...I'm pretty sure I can wait. Eat chode Xbox One! :D

Hmmm....I actually like this game, which is a shame as I don't want the Xbox One...

I know they say Xbox One exclusive, but I wonder if they'll eventually put it on PC like the last one.

Another useless titles going to garbage Xbox One exclusive. This stupid Microsoft paid lots of money for sure to keep this useless title for some time and no one gives a shit about it.

Kind of surprised Capcom did this considering with Dead Rising 2 the serious went multi plat.  MS must have had to pay some big bucks to make this an exclusive.

i predict that a bunch of very specific people will suddenly say that the dead rising series is crap anyways

Just going to stick with everything I have now, maybe farther down the road I will think on buying the new consoles, but most launch titles are meh. I am saying that for all consoles as well, I felt stupid when I bought the last gen consoles at launch and there was nothing enjoyable out at that time. Besides, I don't play my consoles nearly enough to buy one right off the back when I mostly play PC games.

Xbox show TV and Kinect support... Sony fanboys say it's not a gaming console with no good games... Xbox show a whole bunch of really good games coming to the console.. Sony fanboys say the console sucks and want the games come to other consoles... Conclusion.. Let's wait till Sony's conference and then make your honest mind up

@BradPoynor really halo? thats what you're going to use in an argument against ps4? i love the 360 but the x1 is nothing but crap, have fun not owning any of the games you pay for.

@Tribesmaster Don't worry, it's only a timed exclusive. Capcom is too greedy to make it full exclusive.

@acerx7  how the hell you go through five systems what the hell you doing throwing them on the ground and jumping on them. my 360 messed up one time in the past 6 years got it fixed for free and no problems since and that article would mean the same thing if  apple was to shut down I tunes.

@frylock1987 Now that we know we will have used games, Kinect is the only issue really. When I get the 1 I'm gonna face Kinect towards the wall and turn off all the data sharing options that Microsoft said people have control over. 

Microsoft's games look much more fun to play that what the PS4 showed. This briefing totally changed my view on the console. The games look insane.

@frylock1987 I don't think used games are that relevant to alot of gamers. Plus its still possible to trade in your games. People just like to whinge  about DRM.

@frylock1987  what crash are you talking about  you can't buy used games on pc  or sell pc games  so what is the difference . you can still sell your games on the X1 , no one knows what Sony policies will be .

@Jasurim If they want to make a profit they'll have to. Then again, when Micrososft is paying you off, do you even need to make a profit?

@BelaidKL except few of them, rest of them were cross platform games ... the Dead rising and Titan fall are also time exclusive meaning that in year or two they'll be on PS4 as well.

@BelaidKL I'll say the presentation was much better than I expected but no way will I give M$ my money.  They have built up to much personal hate from myself for numerous reasons.

@Aria1368 @BelaidKL Where did you read that they are timed exclusives? I didnt see or read or hear that... anywhere. Link?


BelaidKL

@Rayzakk @BelaidKL Fair enough... It's an understandable reason to avoid the console rather than avoiding it JUST to avoid it.. But what if Sony adopt the same policies?? It's why I'm sitting put for now until Post-Sony conference

Rayzakk

@BelaidKL @Rayzakk Have no doubt Sony probably will.  You can surely see from my gamerscore most of my time has been spent playing on xbox compared to ps3 however that has gained M$ no loyalty that they didn't manage to destroy after one temp ban for stupid reasons.
