DR2: Off the Record 'Missing Years' Trailer

By Mark Delaney, 7 years ago
Frank West has led quite the eventful life. As a freelance photojournalist he has not only covered wars (you know), but he was also largely responsible for revealing the truth behind the Willamette, Colorado zombie outbreak. From that he gained a lot of fame and fortune. In the alternate storyline of Dead Rising 2: Off the Record we see Frank back in the middle of a zombie takeover, this time in Fortune City. The situation he's in is one in need of answers. How did Frank go from a national hero to finding himself slicing and dicing at zombie limbs again?

This new trailer aims to explain what Frank did in those years in between Willamette and Fortune City. It shows the highs and lows of his time in the spotlight and tries to explain what would lead a man, who had already seen the bloody horrors of one zombie outbreak, to venture to a second one.

While many gamers are fed up with Capcom's endless re-releases of their games, this version is clearly fan service and has so far been met with eager anticipation from many of those fans.

Off the Record will be available at a lower price and offers features like new missions, new weapons, new environments, and better load times, among other things.

Chomp down on over-sized baguettes once more this fall when Dead Rising 2: Off the Record hits stores on October 11th in North America and October 14th across Europe.
