Dead Rising 2: Off The Reoord To Have Plenty Of Zombies


Capcom Vancouver's Jason Leigh has said that those of you worrying that the upcoming Dead Rising 2 title, Off The Record, won't contain enough zombies...shame on you.

In an interview with Siliconera, Leigh said,
“This time around, because we made Frank a tougher character right at the beginning and we gave him more cool weapons that do a lot more damage, we actually managed to up the zombie density and have the world be a little more dangerous for him."

“In places, we upped the density by at least 30%. There are probably a few thousand zombies in any one environment.”
According to Capcom the original Dead Rising 2 title contained 7000 zombies on screen at once but had to be lessened as the developers found that it was going to be too difficult for the final product. DR2: Off The Record is said to address the issue.
“Not only is his camera the signature device and helps him earn PP (experience), the camera is involved with him solving missions. In one mission right at the very beginning where he sees the exchange of a bomb for money and he has to cover this with photographs to complete the mission.

“Also, Frank is a man of action. He gets in there and roughs people up and there are lots of bosses and psychos he encounters in the story as well, but the camera is an integral part.”
Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is out in October for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
