Have you ever wondered how the stars of zombie games can take an unlimited number of munches, bites and chomps from the undead and never worry about joining their ranks? As it turns out, Frank West isn't completely immune to such a thing.
Players will get to see how Frank fares when he finds himself a freshly-infected member of the Willamette horde in the upcoming "Frank Rising" DLC for Dead Rising 4
. It's the second piece of three DLC promised for the season pass
and it's just been dated for April 4th.
In "Frank Rising," Frank isn't just infected and concerned about the possibility of becoming a zombie; he has turned completely. As he wanders the city "driven only by a need to feast," a "former ally" will come across him, recognize him and attempt to help. While this mysterious ally (possibly a cameo of a character from a prior Dead Rising
game?) quickly discovers a temporary cure from an "unlikely resource," the rest of the story is a race against the clock to figure out something permanent.
At the same time, thanks to his brief tango with the undead, he begins to develop "all-new abilities and strength." There's also a bit of a nasty twist — regular food no longer does the trick for his hunger and he must eat others to survive. Rock, Paper, Scissors for who Frank gets to eat, I suppose?
Finally, if things weren't going poorly enough, the government is looking to bomb Willamette into oblivion. Frank needs to get himself and a handful of fellow survivors out of the city before it's too late.
A few more details have also been released for "Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf," the last piece of the Dead Rising 4
season pass puzzle.
With multiple holes of pure wanton destruction, in "Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf" players will flip zombies the bird as they navigate the greens in the Willamette Mall and surrounding town. Unlock specialized golf clubs, costumes and balls as Frank West provides play-by-play commentary for swings, birdies, and shots. Collect Power-Ups to take the game to the next level and take out zombies with explosive style while keeping swings low and the kill count high. Hone course skills to perfection in single player, fight for the high score online in a 4-player multiplayer, or join friends in your living room with turn-based co-op.
The first DLC included with the season pass, the "Stocking Stuffer Holiday Pack," already launched last year.
"Frank Rising" will be out on April 4th for both Xbox One and Windows 10, included via the season pass or sold for US$9.99 separately. "Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf" doesn't have a release date yet but is promised to be coming soon, also included with the season pass or sold at $9.99 separately.
