1080p/60FPS Dead Rising 1 and 2 Remasters' Pricing, Release Dates Confirmed

All three games arrive in September.

15 Comments

Capcom today shared new details about the upcoming remastered versions of the early Dead Rising games, including how much they'll cost.

Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will be available for $20 each or in a "Triple Pack" bundle for the very slightly discounted price of $59.49. If you're willing to preorder the Triple Pack, you'll then receive a discount that's actually noteworthy, as it'll cost $50.

The three games come with all DLC costumes released for them and improved graphics. Capcom says they run at 1080p and 60 frames per second.

All three will arrive digitally for Xbox One and PS4 on September 13. (As both Dead Rising 2 games are already available on PC, that platform is only getting the original Dead Rising.) A physical release for Dead Rising is also coming that day, with Dead Rising 2 following on September 27. Both physical launches will only be available in North America.

Notably absent from this collection of re-releases are the smaller-sized, Xbox Live Arcade Dead Rising games, Case Zero and Case West. The two games bookended Dead Rising 2, with Case Zero setting up the game's backstory and Case West continuing things after DR2's conclusion.

These re-releases come ahead of the next entry in the series' launch. Dead Rising 4 arrives for Xbox One and PC on December 6.

The price is too high, I'll wait. I bought their Resident Evil rereleases , and I preordered DR4 , but I'll draw the line here.

Dead Rising 1 was the best one in my opinion.

Actually felt like a Zombie apocalypse as you was actually fighting the zomebies with somewhat believable weapons.

This made it feel more immersive and more like what you would expect from popular zombie movies.

Then with Dead Rising 2 they went down hill with these over the top weapons.

Definitely will be re-purchasing the 1st one.

@ashtontheguru: I didn't know that, I just figured it was always "wacky". I've only played the 3rd one.

I once had 2 X1s and traded one in for the PS4 Uncharted bundle a few months ago. Best decision I have ever made. From here on out, they should start calling Xbox the BCRMBox (Backward Compatibility / Remastered). It's really sad when the majority of games discussed and advertised are Red Dead, and this nonsense.

@caseyrybek: They still better then PS. Xbox has all those remastered games and backwards compatibility because some of us expect those to work if we already bought them. Hence they are free. Unlike PS store where you have to rebuy everything. And Xbox has way better games. Good try though.

The triple pack discount is a bit of a joke really, otherwise depending on how well its been remastered I've seen worse rip-offs.

Yeah though once again, triple pack provides absolutely nothing. May as well buy the best one (Dead Rising) and then leave the other two (Dead Rising 2 / Off The Record) until the price drops and then consider them. No real incentive to purchase all 3 when you save nothing and you can't play them all at once anyway.

I will get this, because co-op without absurd amounts of framedroppin' will be nice.

Decent pricing, might pick up the first one remastered as I've only played it briefly.
