I’m all for keeping old games alive, but this remaster craze, man. It seems to be a thing nowadays that every game ever needs to be remastered at some point. The latest series to get the treatment? Dead Rising.
Ahead of the release of the fourth game in Capcom’s zombie series on December 6, Dead Rising 1 and 2, in addition to the Off the Record version of 2, will be reissued in new remastered editions. Polish studio QLOC will be handling the update of the first game, whilst Mercenary Technology will handle both versions of the second.
All three games will be released as part of the Dead Rising: Triple Pack on September 13 on Xbox One, with PS4 and PC releases also being expected.
Have a look some screenshots for the remastered editions below and let us know in the comments if you think they look like significant improvements from the original versions of the games.
Enjoy three times the zombies with the Dead Rising® Triple Pack, containing Dead Rising®, Dead Rising® 2, and Dead Rising® 2 Off The Record. What a time to be undead!
Frank West, a freelance photojournalist on the hunt for the scoop of a lifetime, pursues a juicy lead to a small suburban town only to find that it is being overrun by zombies! He escapes to the local shopping mall thinking it will be a bastion of safety, but it turns out to be anything but. It’s a true struggle to survive the endless stream of enemies, but with full reign over an entire shopping center, Frank can utilize anything to fight off the flesh-hungry mob and search for the truth behind the horrendous epidemic.
Dead Rising 2:
Game Description:In the sequel to Dead Rising®, players step into the shoes of Chuck Greene, professional motorcycle racer. Surrounded by a horde of hungry zombies in the spectacular casino town of Fortune City, Chuck finds himself in a race against time to find Zombrex, the one thing that can keep Katey, his young daughter, alive. Can he protect her and make it out of Fortune City alive?
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record:
Photojournalist and original hero of Dead Rising’s Willamette incident, Frank West, takes center stage once again in Dead Rising® 2: Off the Record. Forget what you know about Dead Rising® 2, as players will experience a reimagining of the Fortune City outbreak. The new ‘Off the Record’ storyline means an all new Dead Rising® 2 experience, where Frank faces off against hordes of twisted enemies, builds more outrageous combo weapons, follows his own unique mission structure, and explores brand new areas of Fortune City to get his biggest scoop yet. Join Frank as he indulges in the insanity of ‘Uranus Zone’, Fortune City’s very own theme park. Full of deadly rides and crazy attractions, the sci-fi themed Uranus Zone is a true zombie-killing paradise. Fans have asked for it and now Dead Rising® 2: Off the Record delivers a fully realized Sandbox Mode! Available from the outset, players can now explore all Fortune City has to offer without having to worry about the clock.
