‘Dead Rising 4’ Campaign Will Not Feature Cooperative Multiplayer
After ditching the series' signature campaign time limit, "Dead Rising 4" is now confirmed to lack its gameplay mode of cooperative multiplayer.
In a Twitch stream, gameplay producer David McAnerin explained why they opted to go with a separate co-op mode as opposed to putting it into the campaign. Even though the campaign will not feature multiplayer, McAnerin detailed a separate four-player co-op mode. The mode is inspired by the original game's Infinity mode, which had players trying to survive for as long as they can. This game's co-op mode gives players the opportunity to learn the backstories of four characters, who star in this mode. You play as them in the mall as you take on, what are described as, "crazy missions."
"We want to make sure we really focus on telling Frank's story," McAnerin said. "We think he's a really interesting character. It's really exciting to bring him back.
Said mode starts with you in a safehouse, where the player should buy some weapons to prepare yourself for when the doors unlock. Upon the doors are unlocked, the player will be able to wreak havoc on the zombie hordes and complete missions that take advantage of game's systems, according to Game Spot.
The player needs to get to the safehouse in order to survive to the end of the day. However, there were no clarifications if a new safehouse wa being referred to or if the same one you started at.
The timed exclusive "Dead Rising 4" releases for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on December 6, however, it could re released on PS4 and Steam in the future. The season pass is currently only available by preordering "Dead Rising 4" Deluxe edition, but it will be sold on its own when the game launches.
