Dead Rising 3 gets 13GB update, links to Operation Broken Eagle DLC suspected

Monday, 20th January 2014 10:50 GMT By Dave Cook

Dead Rising 3 has received a 13GB update on Xbox One, which is believed to be linked to Capcom Vancouver’s incoming DLC pack Operation Broken Eagle.

It follows the appearance of Dead Rising Collection on Amazon. Hit the link to check it out.

The Escapist reports that the update is mandatory if you wish to continue playing online. It’s unclear what the update involves, but the folk over at Reddit have speculated that it’s to do with Operation Broken Eagle, launching later this month. The DLC is one of four content drops that make up the Dead Rising 3 season pass. It will be followed by Fallen Angel, Chaos Rising and The Last Agent.

OXM adds that the full Dead Rising 3 base install is around 19.9GB, suggesting that the DLC is significant in size.

What do you make of the above?

    @1 It wont take 13GB more in the HDD, but rather 1-2GB. It’s downloading a big portion of the game to add the update.

    Yeah, that size is a little too big for just an update.
    Isn’t there supposed to be some kind of a patch note or something?

    I doubt people are going to be happy having to download 13GB of data not knowing what it actually does.

    I would imagine it might be all of the DLC packs in one and they’ll just open it up when the dates for the releases arrive.

    Either way if you happen to book the week off work to play loads of Dead rising 3 online but you have a ISP which limits you to 4gb download a day, id be pretty damn annoyed, most your week gone.

    Why do i need to use 13GB of my limited 500GB for a patch? Seriously?

    Also XB1 really needs an option to see patchnotes, like you can on PS4.

    Probably downloaded while your console was in standby mode. Check the notifications in the top left at the dashboard.

    They don’t put the paid DLC on disk anymore because of the backlash. Now you get it in the first patch :-D don’t worry they’ll be asking for your money to access it.

    “Content for DLC episodes 3 and 4 added as part of this CU.”

    Called it.

    It is 2014. 13GB is nothing. Upgrade your internet plan. 200GB a month is the base standard. If you don’t have 200GB a month. Upgrade. The world ain’t gonna slow down just so you can whinge about why you pay for a lack-luster intenet plan. Paying a little bit extra gets you a lot more bandwidth. Simple.

    I live in Australia. I pay $90 per month for 500GB. That’s $22 per week. Things cost more here. It is still cheap.

    You get what you pay for.

    Well, in ‘Murica it’s gonna change. Net neutrality is no longer in effect. That means bigger patch may result in more expensive internet bill at the end of the month.

    And this patch, they stuffed all the DLC stuff in there, which is completely unnecessary as you don’t even get to play it unless you pay for it.

    Whether or not it would actually translate into that is still in question though.

    Also. You can remove add-on content from the Xbox One when you are not using it. Goto “My Apps & Games.” Highlight the game. Press “start” button. Select “uninstall game & add-ons.”
