Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Trailer Released

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Capcom has just revealed the pre-order incentive for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. Those who pre-order will receive the Cosplay Warrior skills pack. The pack comes with a cardboard costume, made up of a cardboard helmet, armor and boots as well as monster facepaint, which gives you PP bonuses while wearing it. Additionally, when you have the practice sword and shield equipped, special 'Warrior' attacks will be enabled.

Check out the video to see the pre-order gear in action:

Original story:
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record appears to be combining the very best elements of both Dead Rising (Xbox 360) and Dead Rising 2 (Xbox 360) (albeit not with duct tape). On one hand, we have photojournalist Frank West back in the picture, so we can get back to snapping awesome zombie photos, and on the other, we have the weapon making ability first shown off by Chuck Greene.

Today, Capcom released a video showing Frank West yielding the Electric Crusher, a devastating car battery/hammer combo weapon.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will launch on October 11th in the United States and October 14th in Europe. Don't forget that it will be available for a discount price at $39.99 in the US. You can also check out several screens and a pair of trailers for the title right here.
