Dead Rising 3 is due to drop for the Xbox One in November as a launch title for Microsoft’s next-generation console and the developer, Capcom Vancouver, has claimed that the title is the most difficult one in the series to date. However, they followed that up by saying that it only becomes the hardest game if you choose to play it that way. Speaking in an interview with OXM at gamescom, producer Mikes Jones said, “It’s probably the most difficult Dead Rising game we’ve ever made. We wanted to sort of have our cake and eat it, serve both kinds of gamers.”
He also went on to say that those who like the pressure of the Dead Rising games are not going to have that ruined for them:
“I’m the kind of gamer who just wants to be chilled, who doesn’t want to be on a timer or a schedule, but a lot of Dead Rising fans love that timer, and love that save system, and they love breaking controllers, I guess – throwing them against the wall. So if you’re a masochist, we’re not going to ruin it for you.”
Capcom has said that gamers won’t be forced to use Dead Rising 3′s plot or time mechanic unless they choose to tackle Nightmare Mode. Otherwise, players simply have the option to just run riot in the city streets and do whatever they want under no pressure. Are you looking forward to Dead Rising 3?
