It has been revealed that Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2 will be coming to current gen consoles. GameSpot broke the news, saying that a statement was shared with them. The statement reads:
“Capcom will be bringing Dead Rising to Xbox One, PS4, and PC …. In addition, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will make their way onto Xbox One and PS4.”
What’s worth noting is that the statement states PS4 is a platform that will be receiving Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2. This will see the first time that a Dead Rising game is available on PlayStation. Given that Dead Rising 2 and Off The Record are currently available for PC it suggests these may be ports of the games. However no official word as of yet, but word is expected soon.
The series is known for it’s ridiculous zombie shenanigans, with Dead Rising 2 introducing wacky craftable weapons. Off The Record is a remake of Dead Rising 2 that places Dead Rising 1 main character Frank into the game, and adds a bunch of extra content.
Take this news, and add it to the fact that Dead Rising 4 is coming this December and it’s a good time to be a fan of this series. What do you think of this news? Especially you PlayStation players. Let us know in the comments!
