Dead Rising 3′s co-op character & first Psycho revealed
Dead Rising 3 protagonist Nick Ramos won’t have to brave the Los Perdidos streets solo, as he can be joined by trucker Dick in co-op. One of the game’s creepy-looking Psychopaths has also been revealed.
In a report by Business Post, it has been suggested that co-op players can be apart up to “significant” distance, but are still tethered together in some fashion. We’ll need to quiz Capcom on just how far apart players can stray.
In the meantime, Nick’s co-op buddy Dick is a truck driver who is something of a comic foil to Nick’s stoic hero stance. Players can drop in and out of each others games to access missions they’re yet to unlock in their own save and tackle them together. After returning to your own save, any missions completed while in co-op will also be completed in your single-player run.
Here’s a shot of Dick looking rather shocked:
Producer Mike Jones has also confirmed that each of the game’s Psychopaths are based on the seven deadly sins of Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride. In this instance, Greed is a smoking surgeon.
