When the first Dead Rising game released 10 years ago, Xbox users fell in love with Frank West. He’s grumpy, middle-aged, grunts at the thought of doing anything, and will beat you over the head with a crowbar while capturing the moment on film. Everything we aspire to become.
Although everyone has had their share of fun with the last 3 Frankless Dead Rising titles, Frank is back and Microsoft is making sure he comes back with something to stuff in your stocking.
Microsoft and Xbox have announced the availability for pre-orders of Dead Rising 4: Deluxe Edition. Along with a snazzy alternative cover for the physical game itself, Dead Rising 4: Deluxe Edition will come with a season pass.
If purchased separately, the game will cost the obligatory $59.99 USD, and the season pass $24.99 USD, which will run you about $85 USD. However, if you cough up only $79.99 for the deluxe edition of Dead Rising 4, you’ll save yourselves a couple bucks.
At last! Take those 5 bucks and get yourself a PSVR rig!
What the Dead Rising 4: Deluxe Edition‘s Season Pass will get you are as follows:
- Stocking Stuffer Holiday Pack: Frank West is home for the holidays and he’s got a naughty list the size of Willamette, Colorado. Tear up the streets with festive weapons, zombies, vehicles, costumes and more.
- Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf: You’ve mastered the outbreak – now it’s time to master the green, with eighteen holes of pure wanton destruction you can play with up to three friends online. Flip zombies the birdie where bloodthirsty, over the top zombie mayhem is par for the course. The world of Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf is extreme and the fairways are the town of Willamette, Colorado, including the iconic Willamette Memorial Megaplex Mall. Use Frank West’s favorite weapons as your set of golf clubs. With an oversized golf ball, drive down the fairways, reaching for the green to nail the perfect putt. Watch your score as you do not want to bogey in this zombie filled eighteen-hole golf course. Mini golf is made crazier with the zombie horde as obstructions and hazards. Dead Rising Fore!
- Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising: In this DLC, Frank West is freshly infected and needs to find a cure before he becomes a zombie and is lost forever. While searching for a cure, Frank discovers that everything is not the same as it was; zombies are getting smarter, people cannot be trusted and paramilitary forces are plotting to wipe out Willamette. Frank has a limited time before he reverts to the full zombie state and the city is wiped out. Frank will have to get to the truth first… or die trying
Both Dead Rising 4: Deluxe Edition and the game-only version are set to release this year on December 6th, just in time for Christmas (hence the Christmas themes).
