Dead Rising 3 DLC will be single-player only

Dead Rising 3's first DLC hits tomorrow in the form of Operation Broken Eagle: an interview with producer Josh Bridge has confirmed that this and all further content releases for the zombie-smasher will not support co-op play.

When asked by Xbox Wire if Operation Broken Eagle has any co-op content, he said, "No, there’s no co-op for each of the four episodes. We chose to do that so we could really drill down on a single-player experience and really tell that character’s story."

He then confirmed that even though co-op is not supported, the items you gather from the DLC will carry over to the main game: "We see and know that everyone really loves co-op, which is why all of those weapons and vehicles and stuff you get in the episode can be brought into the main game for co-op as well. So, say, in Nightmare mode, you can go into the weapons locker and vehicle garage and find that stuff there."

Are you disappointed about the lack of co-op in the DLC? Let us know below.
