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