DEAD RISING 3 IS COMING, PEOPLE!
"25 minutes of footage"
DR3 IS FOCUSED ON A MORE DARK AND MATURED STORY, BUT THE GAME RETAINS THE GOOFINESS WATERMARK OF THE SERIES; IT'S UP TO THE PLAYER TO EXPLORE THESE ASPECTS. CONFIRMED CLASSIC TIME-LIMIT BASED SYSTEM (You can turn it off though). THE SERIES STILL UNDERSTAND WHICH ARE ITS ROOTS.
Ripped from Capcom-Unity:
Dark, open world.
A bigger open world than ever before in the Dead Rising series--bigger than the worlds of DR 1 and 2 combined. The Xbox One hardware will also allow for a more seamless experience, with fast load times and awesome next-gen visuals.
Also expect lots more zombies on screen at a time, with vastly improved AI. You'll have to be creative to stay alive here.
Hundreds of weapons scattered throughout the world and a nearly limitless variety of combo weapons. Combine weapons anywhere at any time!
Vehicles also play a much bigger role than ever before, but you'll still be vulnerable to the zombie threat when you're behind the wheel.
Easy to play, hard to master.
The accessible pick-up-and-play joy of a DR game, with a new save system and ability to explore the world without time constraints.
BUT! At the same time, you longtime DR folks will enjoy Nightmare Mode, which will bring us a return to classic DR rules, complete with countdown clock and other restrictions. More on Nightmare Mode to come, guys.
SmartGlass and Kinect integration.
Use SmartGlass integration to turn your smartphone or tablet into a "Zombie Defense and Control PDA." Overwhelmed by the zombie masses? Use the device to call an airstrike and even the odds. The PDA will also give you live missing briefings and in-game calls, and keep track of your mission progress. It even has a map to help you find hidden items and locations of interest, plus a real-time news ticker to keep you aware of conditions around Los Perdidos.
The Kinect, meanwhile, will let you use noise to distract zombies and use motion controls to fight your way out of close encounters.
CAPCOM HAS STATED THAT THERE ARE EXCLUSIVE MISSIONS IF YOU'RE USING SMARTGLASS. THESE MISSIONS WILL GIVE INSIGHT OF SOME DEAD RISING'S 3 STORY, BUT WON'T BE FUNDAMENTAL TO UNDERSTAND THE PLOT. So, if you want the 100% Dead Rising 3 experience, you'll need to own a SmartGlass, but it is not necessary to enjoy the story, or the gameplay.
New Main Character!
-> Goes by the name of Nick Ramos.
Where will Frank West and Chuck Greene be?
-> It is set in California. The city is Los Perdidos.
-> The game is set three days after outbreak.
-> Desctructible enviroments.
-> No indicator when picking up weapons.
-> Also, the Hud is severely missing. Perhaps this will be final. Item in hand is shown down to the right.
-> You can combo-things whenever you want. The footage showed the main character assembling a flashlight to a handgun.
-> Perhaps this mean that firearms can be reloaded, or will have more presence than in other entries?
-> Zombies, zombies, zombies, and more zombies. Never a screen has had so many zombies at the same time =D
-> You can outsmart zombies. The footage showed Nick shooting a flare, and zombies would run to the light.
-> You can be attacked while driving, making it a less-safe way to travel between areas.
There was total free-roaming while the gameplay was shown. No more loading screens, people!
-> No time limit was shown during footage.
-> Use of Smartglass was shown, in order to support your character with airstrikes or things like that.
-> Xbox One exclusive.
I'll be updating. (First update up!)
