A lot of people were dismayed with the ending for Dead Rising 4. It concluded with Frank West falling from a helicopter into a pile of zombies who proceeded to attack (and eat?) the intrepid reporter. Well, many gamers suspected that West couldn’t have died… he’s the hero and they felt that he had to have lived… right? Well, not really. Frank West dies and becomes a zombie, but he’s also back as a playable character in the new Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising DLC.
Over on the Capcom Unity blog they revealed that the new DLC will see Frank making a return… as one of the living dead.
The new DLC is set to drop on April 11th for Xbox One and Windows 10 on PC. The game will take on a slightly different tone, as Frank will need to feed on live human flesh in order to stay undead and kicking.
Frank will need help from some allies in order to find a cure for his zombie strain, something beyond the meager offerings of Zombrex.
In addition to shambling around as an undead Frank, there’s also the new mini-golf mode called “Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf”. This is a single-player or multiplayer with take-turns gameplay featuring new costumes and power-ups.
It’s funny because a lot of people had already called it and said that given the way Dead Rising 4 ended it would likely have DLC to flesh out the ending, and lo and behold there’s some DLC to flesh out the ending. Typical Capcom. Whether or not this will actually be the final, final ending remains to be seen… but if Frank can’t cure his zombie problem, then it looks like he’s staying (un)dead for good.
The new DLC for Dead Rising 4 will be available for $9.99 on Steam, the Microsoft Store and Xbox One.
