What's Happening

Dead Rising 3

Nick And Dick Make One Mean Zombie-Smashing Team

Capcom has released some more information about Dead Rising 3, including details on the game's co-op mode and psychos.

When a second player joins in a friend's game, they'll take on the role of a new character named Dick instead of a clone of Dead Rising 3's hero Nick Ramos. Players who join online sessions save the progress the team makes on their own save files, too. In other words, if you slash your way through several missions together with a teammate and then play your single-player game later, you can choose to skip the portions you've already completed.

It wouldn't be a Dead Rising game without the psycho bosses, and they're back in Dead Rising 3. This time around, they're each based on the seven deadly sins. Capcom's only released the identity of one so far, the syringe-wielding maniac based on greed. He's wearing plenty of jewelry, befitting the character, and we wouldn't be surprised if there was a little not-so-subtle jab at the health-care industry in there as well.

Take a look at the gallery below for loads of new screens, featuring greed, Dick, and plenty of zombie mayhem. For even more information on the game, take a look at our video interview with the game's producer, Mike Jones.

  • can't wait, this will be my third xbox one game, looking forward to some co op fun this game with friends

  • I wonder if the co-op character will also appear in cut-scenes. Sort of like Frank West in DR2 Case West.

  • Will this have split screen co-op?
  • Dead Rising 3!  Now with Dick!

    I do love co-op experiences and I hope this turns out to be a smashing good time.

  • one of my main reasons to own a xone!!!!

  • i always hated the boss fights they are the most annoying part of any dead rising game imo. still cant wait to get this however
  • Thanks for the fresh screens and the nice little write-up. This game might be a day one buy now instead of just a must buy over the holiday. If I go first party this beats out Ryse but it still has Assassin's Creed 4 to beat out as my new fav that recently just passed up Battlefield 4. Ah hell I want them all! Agh! Conundrum, yes that's the word.
  • My name is Nick!! :)

  • This game just keeps looking better. I'm really excited for this. All in all, I think all 4 of the games I have pre-ordered are looking really good. Besides this, I have Battlefield 4, Watch_Dogs, and Assassin's Creed 4.

  • I am so stoked for this game. Can't wait for November.

  • Who?

  • All I care about is if it's split-screen. Is it?

  • Sounds great! I wonder if it will have couch co-op.
