Dead Rising 3 gameworld larger than first two games combined

Upcoming Xbox One launch title represents the largest world Capcom has ever made in the zombie franchise.

The Dead Rising 3 gameworld is larger than the first two games in the series combined, according to a new report from the Financial Post.

Capcom Vancouver representatives said players are likely to use vehicles to move around the world 50 percent of the time due to its size. Unlike its predecessors, Dead Rising 3 will not feature loading screens between areas.

"We wanted to go truly open-world this time around. No more load screens," executive producer Josh Bridge said. "With the biggest world that we've been able to make, with loads of zombies."

Dead Rising 3 is an Xbox One launch title being released with the platform on November 22 in North America and 12 other regions across the world.

The game features a new city, Los Perdidos, alongside new protagonist Nick Ramos. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Don't care its still the same boring gameplay mechanics, terrible game they've not even made an effort.

Why not to make a game like Deadrising but using the first person perspective and I am not talking about dead island. I would like to see an fps about zombies with a really big open world, lots of stuff to do, interesting story and enjoyable sidequests!

P.S. Day Z is not an option also, or at least it is the basis for further developement.

I, personally, think this game looks amazing. And it is one of the games I will be buying if I get an Xbox One.

Even if its x10 bigger ... this game is for the laughs. Naked people with baseball bats hitting zombies ... Who the heck will pay to play this C-movie like game? Only lems!

It just looks crap, I hate animation based melee combat and I hate animation based jumping. It should be free form so you can jump where you want and attack anywhere on the body with an object....... basically physics based.

This is the tempting XB1 game. I bought the 360 for Dead Rising and Saints Row.

NO, no, no no and NO,  I don't want a "larger world".  I want a world filled with stuff to do, not a wasteland (excluding Fallout 3 duh).

This game wasn't running at 30fps at Gamescom. They will need to scale the visuals back slightly. laughable! It should be 60fps.

Dah, Dead Rising 1&2 have tiny maps, lol. Dead Rising 3 is looking nice, I hope they put WAY TOO MUCH ZOMBIES, that's the best part of those games, lol.

This is the only game I have pre-ordered for Xbox One and I'm not super excited about it :).  It's not really my type of game, but hopefully it will be fun to just run around the world and do stupid stuff.  Oh and the only reason I am getting an Xbox One is because of a lot of trade credit with promos, I figured what the heck I'll get it.

Well of course its larger. The console is newer and will have games refined for it as will the PS4. Despite the fact the PC could have done this quite a few years ago. But no developer really uses the hardware we spend good money on year after year in a meaningful way, I don't mean tacked on DX11 or anything of that nature. Why do I need 32x Antialiasing? To sharpen up the ugly textures we get ported over mostly. Makes our investment and effort building our PCs a bloody waste. That's why I will probably use my really powerful PC capable of so much, to do rendering and other intensive such projects, and games still can't use all 32GB of ram I have or even make use of all the CPU cores/threads I have available. What a waste.

Wasted potential, wasted money on powerful hardware that so few developers make their games even scalable to utilize said powerful hardware. Why therefore, should I support a developer that releases ports to PCs (who are still far ahead in hardware), and the game requires very old hardware you usually can't even buy retail anymore?

These developers might do the same thing and just port over the Xbox One version if or when it comes to PC, because that's the cheap and easy way out. Just watch how many illegal downloads there will be of it come PC release, and I WILL say I told you so.

i really dont understand why they keep making this games, this was a crap from the beggining like saints raw. putting every stupid idea you got in a game ITS NOT FUN!!! they pay more for cinematics than for the actual game.

really what kind of people buy this shits, cause those are not even games

I have to say this game was impressive at E3.  It would be another reason besides Titanfall and Forza 5 to buy an X1.

Is that meant to be a feat? Just Cause 2? Or GTAV?

GTAV's main city is bigger than GTA 4's 3 islands. That's excluding the enormous landscape beyond that. It's bigger than GTA4, SA and RDR combined.

How about sorting out your FPS issue with your ped count before you make the world bigger.

@trivolution Everytime I see or hear the name Frank West(which is an awesome name) I always think of the rocker and the awesomeness of Frank Black.

@jophy There are plenty of other good reasons to get it you know.

I feel ya. 

The size of he world can mean nothing if it feels like less thought was put behind it.

@dark-sign just because you dont like it doesnt mean other people is the same like you.. For instance i find it funny and fun.. the real reason for you to hate or dislike the game is because you dont know how exactly the game works. In the beginning... of course level 1 is literally crap (slow, bad stamina, limited create weapon choice, annoying timing trials etc...) but if you level it up more say level 20 or more now things will turn to positive.

Leveling up is tiring.. but you do know that if you quit the game for any progress you made so far in the game, you can carry your level with you on the new game ! That will make things alot more easier to play compared when you were level 1.

@dark-sign What are you talking about, Dead Rising is super fun. The only point I can give you is that it's not worth 60$, as you get bored after a week or two. But those week(s) are really cool ^_^. Still, I sold DR2 after about a month, since I wasn't playing it at all. It's always the same, but having so much zombies around is really cool. Still, it's no GTA.

@Class_Act998675 What are you talking about, they never said it's a timed exclusive. I'm pretty sure it's 100% exclusive, forever, on the XBO. And I'm not an XBO fanboy, I'm a long date Playstation fan (click on my name you'll see my Playstation games). Still, the game looks really good. I also think it's the best XBO exclusive title they talked about, with Titanfall (but this is one is a timed exclusive only so it's coming on PS4 next year).

@GhostofWar75 @Davimus518 Not saying this game is better than GTA V but will GTA V have hundreds of zombies on screen at once? Comparing this game with GTA is redundant.

@senjutsu @dark-sign 
i dont know how years old are you? im 26 now and i m playing games since i was 6, all those games are like same shit different day. Dying Light looks much better than this and the footage from the gameplay its in pre alpha .i dont know i suppose younger generation enjoy those games more, like saints raw , i mean really why would someone pay to play a game that is worse than a indie game in mechanics/physics and gameplay, i have the same impression about dead rising 2, i played it for 2 hours and never touched it again since then. most of the games doesnt worth 60€, and most of the franchises should stop released like every year, its like you get the iphone 4 and they release 4s after a year with little improvments and they keep doing it like forever. we need new games, real next gen games. the only game i m interested right now its gta 5.

@senjutsu Not confirmed , they just said "it is not off the table". And if Sony doesnt improve their online system they wont get Titanfall.

@dark-sign @senjutsu LOL, you mention the game as same shit different day and God of War in the same sentence. That is true and you a blind, turd fanboy is also a true statement. This game rocks and because your sense of humor and tast of games stink, doesnt mean you should come here to bash it
