There's plenty to soak in with the new update, which weighs in at around 13GB. Some improvements include the struggle to pick up objects off the ground that are amongst a bunch of other objects being made easier. Running low on ammo but haven't noticed? Don't worry, the newly added "impulse trigger" feature will kindly remind you when you need to do something about those empty magazines. Check out the list to see the exact changes, fixes, and tweaks included with the update.

In addition to the update, the game's Executive Producer, Josh Brid, speaks in an interview with Xbox Wire regarding the title update, and incoming DLC for the title giving fans plenty of details and info.

To add to the sheer excitement of zombie-slaying to come in the new DLC, a fresh trailer has also been released. With the "Untold Stories of Los Perdidos" beginning to unfold, the trailer showcases Spec Ops Commander Kane in a bit of a tight situation as his chopper is shot down and Kane is forced to survive on foot against a never-ending barrage of zombies. New weapons and vehicles can also be seen in action in this new trailer. Check it out and enjoy!

The title update is already live for Dead Rising 3 so if you haven't fired up the game yet today, you'll be prompted to download the update when you do. After suffering a slight delay, the "Operation Broken Eagle" DLC remains set for release tomorrow and will be priced individually at $9.99 (UK price still unconfirmed), or as part of the Season Pass for DR3 which can be purchased now for $29.99 / £23.99.
