I am pretty damned excited for Capcom’s Xbox One exclusive, Dead Rising 3. It may look all serious, but it got that irreverent and wacky gameplay you’d expect from Dead Rising. This new announcement though, tempers that excitement a little. Like a certain other Xbox One launch game, it’ll be getting a Season Pass – which means a ton of DLC has been announced before the game is even out.

It’ll cost you $29.99 (around R300)  and will contain four add-on packs, which would each cost you $10 unbundled.

The expansions are entitled: Operation Broken Eagle, Fallen Angel, Chaos Rising, and The Last Angel. Each of the DLC campaigns will give you a new playable character, along with  new missions, weapons, vehicles and other bits of silliness. The first such DLC will be out in December. Those who purchase the Season Pass “Nick Ramos Tribute Pack,” which nets you an extra skin for the hero, along with a muscle car.

I have no real problem with DLC, or Season passes – but keep that info to yourselves until the game is actually out. The way it’s done now, makes it feel like you’re selling us an unfinished, incomplete game.

Anyway, here’s the game’s latest trailer, which has a bit of a Halloween motif to it. Crap. Now I want the game again.

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.
