Capcom’s Dead Rising 4 has a couple pieces of DLC incoming, and Microsoft shared some info today on the expansions.
Via an Xbox Wire post, the co-publisher first detailed Frank Rising, a standalone single-player story, due out on April 4. The add-on tells the story of what happens to protagonist Frank West after he’s infected in a new outbreak, and follows the wisecracking photojournalist in his quest for a cure … and to find some human flesh to feast on in the meantime. Apparently, West’s zombie form will grant him “all-new abilities and strength,” despite his new need to consume the living to survive.This first piece of DLC will be available as part of the game’s already-released season pass, or for $10 on its own, on both Xbox One and PC.
Next, and only detailed vaguely as coming “soon,” is Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf. Also available for either $10 or as part of the season pass, players will swing their clubs on greens spread across the Willamette Mall and the town itself, earning unlockable gear upgrades while Frank provides snarky “play-by-play commentary.” You’ll be able to collect power-ups to better vanquish the undead, “keeping swings low and the kill count high” in both turn-based couch co-op or online multiplayer.
