Fans of the zombie slaughter-fest franchise, Dead Rising
will not have to wait long to get their hands on the latest installment, Dead Rising 3
, as it has already been confirmed that the game will be one of those titles that will be available immediately on launch day
for the Xbox One.
Further good news for fans of the title was also revealed today at Gamescom 2013. Whilst the franchise has been known for its weird and wonderful weapon combinations used for dispatching any unfortunate undead who happen to stumble across the path of the game's resourceful protagonist, vehicles have been left pretty much untouched. Fortunately, this has now be redressed in the upcoming title with new combo-vehicles being available to the player enabling them to commit vehicular zombie-slaughter on a unprecedented scale.
To give an idea of how this will play out in the game, Capcom have released a new cinematic trailer showing one such vehicle in action, the intriguingly named RollerHawg. This ingenious wacky racer is a combination of a motor cycle, steam roller, and flamethrower all MacGuyver'ed into one machine. Duct tape has never been more lethal.
To accompany the video, Xbox UK have released a short video interview with Mike Jones, the producer on Dead Rising 3
. In the short clip, Jones explains some of features that we see in the cinematic, before going on to discuss how the game makes use of the additional power of the new console and the new Smartglass integration.
Along with the the two videos, we also have several other screenshots featuring some more of the vehicles that can be found in the new game including the 'Shock Dozer', 'Fork Work', and 'Turret Rig'Dead Rising 3
will be hitting the shelves on Xbox One launch day in November 2013.
