I hope you are ready for some more Dead Rising 4 DLC to get added into the mix for the game now as we have a look at what is coming to us on April 4th now. I know that hasn't been a lot of time to enjoy the game for all of you PC gamers out there, but for those Xbox One fans it looks like Capcom is going to give you even more reasons to keep playing outside of the time of year that the game is set in. In fact, with this new DLC for Dead Rising 4 we are going to get a rather nice bit of extra story to play as we see our favorite character down in the dumps further. How far down? Well it looks like he has been infected by the virus and needs human flesh to put that out there for you.
This new DLC, Frank Rising lets us explore what happens to Frank after an all-new outbreak hits Willamette. This sounds like something in addition to the one that we have in Dead Rising 4 proper, but not having had the chance to experience the game first hand yet I can't be certain. None the less, it looks like Frank now has the taste for human flesh after being beaten down and bloodied from the events of the game. Now he must try and cure himself and save others while the virus forces him to only be able to sustain himself on the flesh of the living. I'm going to guess we will see some interesting "Do I eat or save this person" kind of choices along the way. I guess we'll know here soon though.
In addition to this, it has also been announced that we will see our favorite golf course coming back to Dead Rising 4 as Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf has been placed out there by Capcom to come at a later date. The date, of course, not being set just yet but it will hit the PC and Xbox at the same time and be part of the Season Pass or a stand-alone purchase if you wish. Just about as it sounds, Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf looks to be just like a messed up version of mini golf that only this franchise could provide. The exacts on all of this have still yet to be stated, but we'll be able to play and unlock various different items for this mode while playing in multiplayer or local co-op. Not too shabby.
Frank Rising explores what happens to Frank after an all-new outbreak in Willamette. Frank is infected and wanders the city beaten, bloody and driven only by a need to feast. When a former ally discovers him, he is written off as incurable. Luckily, he’ll find help from an unlikely resource. As Frank begins to recover he’ll need to race to find a permanent cure while developing all-new abilities and strength. Unfortunately, he can no longer eat food to stay alive and must feast on others to survive. As he is trying to save himself, Frank learns that several survivors he cares about are trapped in the city with him and he must rescue them – and himself – before the government closes his case file for good and wipes the city off the map.
Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising is included as part of the Dead Rising 4 Season Pass, which is available for purchase in the Microsoft Store. Players can also get the pack as a standalone purchase for $9.99 USD, or get the game and Season Pass together in the Dead Rising 4 Digital Deluxe Edition.
Spring also means it’s time to return to your favorite golf course. Once you’ve mastered the outbreak in Willamette it’s time to master the greens in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf, coming soon for Xbox One and Windows 10.
With multiple holes of pure wanton destruction, in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf players will flip zombies the bird as they navigate the greens in the Willamette Mall and surrounding town. Unlock specialized golf clubs, costumes and balls as Frank West provides play-by-play commentary for swings, birdies, and shots. Collect Power-Ups to take the game to the next level and take out zombies with explosive style while keeping swings low and the kill count high. Hone course skills to perfection in single player, fight for the high score online in a 4-player multiplayer, or join friends in your living room with turn-based co-op.
