Dead Rising 2 is out tomorrow. We got a copy yesterday. We played it for 15 minutes and recorded it. Killing zombies with traffic cones was involved. See for yourself after the break. Obviously, spoilers.

The opening sequences see Chuck and his daughter Katey preparing for zombie-slaughtering game-show Terror is Reality in Fortune City.

After the shoot – or, more appropriately, “slice” – the general situation takes a turn for the worse after the undead escape into the town and start eating everyone.

You’ll see the start of the game proper here, with Chuck picking up anything he can find in corridors to smash through the hordes and rescue his daughter.

You’ll also see the save system, which uses toilets. There’s no auto-save again, a “feature” we found to our cost last night.

Warning: when people moaned about the load times and amount of load screens in Case: Zero, they weren’t kidding.

The video’s max res is 480p. Sorry. We’d bore you with why it isn’t HD, but we won’t. The shots are 720p.

Dead Rising 2’s out this Friday for 360 and PS3. An 360-exclusive epilogue, Case: West, was announced at TGS last week for an unconfirmed date.
