E3 2013: Dead Rising 3 exclusive to Xbox One

Dead Rising 3, the third installment in the open-world survival horror series, will launch exclusively on Xbox One this holiday, it was announced today during Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

The game is set three days after a massive outbreak in the city of Los Perdidos and stars new protagonist Nick Ramos. Footage shown during today’s conference featured Ramos walking through the ruined town, taking on zombies with a massive wrench. Based on his clothing, he appears to be a mechanic. Hordes of zombies packed the screen, and Ramos took to the rooftops to try and get to a safehouse in the city center.

The game will be open world with no load times. Anything and everything is a weapon, but players won’t be limited to what they find. The game will feature a crafting system that will allow players to build new weapons. In the footage Ramos strapped a gun to a flashlight.

Zombies will be attracted to players’ every move, but there are ways to distract them. Ramos sent up a flare and the zombies moved away towards it. Players can also sprint through clusters of zombies and attempt to evade them, or simply take them down with their weapons.

Driving will be a critical part of exploration as you scavenge for supplies and will be the best way to get around. Groups of zombies can slow down your car if you run into them, and the zombies can also climb on the car and attempt to break in.

The game will use also use SmartGlass. Players can use it to call in an air strike and bomb hordes of zombies.

The first Dead Rising launched in Aug. 2006 exclusively for Xbox 360. The story centered on photojournalist Frank West trapped in a mall filled with zombies. A sequel starring new protagonist Chuck Greene, Dead Rising 2, was developed in partnership with Blue Castle Games and was released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC in Sept. 2010. Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, a reimagining of the game with Frank West as the protagonist, launched for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in Oct. 2011.
