Dead Rising 3’s co-op play has received a big batch of screens and details, along with a new non-Psycho biker boss. There’s also mad outfits, new femme fatales and of course.

In Dead Rising 3, Nick Ramos can be joined by hapless truck driver Dick, and together they can raise hell on the streets of Los Perdidos. This Capcom-Unity blog post confirmed that players will be untethered when they pair up, meaning they can explore the breadth of the map to their heart’s content.

Missions to complete together will be completed in both of your solo saves too, so you literally are completing the game as a team.

Capcom also published a new batch of Dead Rising 3 screens, although I’ll admit there’s one or two oldies in there as well. They show off the game’s first revealed Psycho Greed. He’s a mad surgeon. There’s also a non-Psycho boss. He’s the biker guy seen below. Finally, there’s two friendly female characters who are yet to be detailed.
