Dead Rising 4 Won’t Feature Campaign Co-op; Including Separate 4-Player Co-op Mode
Just in time for the holidays, Frank West is bringing good tidings (and zombie killing) in the upcoming Dead Rising 4, with the latest chapter in the series looking more toward storytelling by dropping campaign co-op.
In a Twitch stream with ExpertZone_Community, Capcom revealed that campaign co-op will not be available in Dead Rising 4, marking a departure from the last few titles in the series that featured the ability for players to play through the story with friends.
Instead, gameplay producer David McAnerin explained that the drop for campaign co-op was done to “focus on telling Frank’s story,” as the team is “excited to bring him back” into the fold of the Dead Rising series.
Rather than the story mode featuring co-op, Dead Rising 4 will instead feature four-player co-op in a separate mode inspired by the “Infinity Mode” from the original game, where players will work together to survive for as long as they can against zombie hordes and take on “crazy missions.”
Dead Rising 4 will release for Xbox One and PC on December 6th, 2016, with a PS4 release expected down the line.
