Not everyone is excited about Frank West’s return.
Dead Rising 4 brings back the star of the original, Frank West. It’s set in Willamette, Colorado, which is where the original took place. The action takes place around the Willamette Mall – another thing fans of the series will be familiar with.
Set 16 years after the events of the first game (and one year after Dead Rising 3), Dead Rising 4 takes place during the Christmas season. Though there are many familiar faces and locales, one of the many different things in this game is that Frank West is voiced by a different actor.
One other major change, which more or less started with the previous game, is that there is no longer a time limit. Capcom said missions will be more time-sensitive towards the end of the game, however.
The game also features four-player co-op, but only in a separate multiplayer mode.
