It has been revealed via a Twitch Stream that the Dead Rising 4 campaign will not have multiplayer co-op. The game’s gameplay producer David McAnerin has explained the team’s decision to not include the feature:
“We want to make sure we really focus on telling Frank’s story. We think he’s a really interesting character. It’s really exciting to bring him back.”
While the campaign will not multiplayer co-op, there is a separate 4 player co-op mode. Similar to the original Dead Rising’s Infinity mode, the mode sees players attempting to survive for as long as they can. The mode then goes through the process of explaining the backstory of the characters.
First the series’ notorious time limit was removed from the campaign, now the co-op has been removed from the campaign. What do you think of this? Will you still be grabbing Dead Rising 4? Let us know in the comments below.
