Dead Rising 2 : Case Zero Infects Xbox Live

1 min read


If you’re a fan of the rather excellent, but quite painful Dead Rising, you’ll be pretty excited for the sequel. If you’re an Xbox 360 owner you get your Zombie killing fix a little earlier, courtesy of Xbox 360 exclusive DLC Case Zero.

A prequel to the game proper, Case Zero sees protagonist Chuck Greene – who hasn’t to my knowledge, covered wars – attempting to save his daughter by fighting off hordes of undead using an array of player- assembled weapons. It’ll be available on Xbox Live later today for a measly 400 MSP, giving you around 3 hours of zombie-mincing gameplay. Some have scoffed at the idea of paying for what’s essentially a demo – but the fact it’s a self contained story, and the fact that you can carry your levels through to the main game kinda tickles me.

Leaked gameplay footage after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
