Zombies arise! ‘Dead Rising 3’ demo now available on Xbox One

The new “Dead Rising 3” demo is now available on Xbox One, and on Friday, Capcom lifted the lid on the game’s first downloadable episode.

“I’m sure the fact that today is Friday the 13th has nothing to do with it,” writes Jeff Rubenstein on Major Nelson’s blog. To learn more about Operation Broken Eagle, Rubenstein talked with the game’s executive producer, Josh Bridge.

“With all four of the Untold Stories of Los Perdidos experiences, you get to see the story of ‘Dead Rising 3’ unravel from a different point of view,” Bridge says. “You get to take on the role of a different character in each of the four and play through their story and how it ties into the overall plot and reveals how the outbreak unfolded in parallel to Nick Ramos attempting to escape.”

Plus, each of the episodes has new weapons and a custom vehicle, “along with side missions and other goodies to collect and ace achievements with,” he says. “The team had some fun with getting some pretty crazy weapons in there!”

For more of the interview with Bridge, including tips on how to tackle nightmare mode, head over to Xbox Wire. And for more on “Dead Rising 3,” be on zombie watch for Bridge’s interview with Major Nelson later Friday on MNR 497.
