Chuck Greene's out of the picture in Off The Record, the next extension for Dead Rising 2, however a familiar face is back once more and he's brought his camera with him. Get ready for another zombie filled photo journalist excursion with Frank West.
Off The Record's effectively just a way for Capcom to refresh the Dead Rising 2 formula, in the laziest way possible, by dropping Frank into Chuck's place in Fortune City during a simple alternate reality scenario. You'll discover new enemies, items, missions, cutscenes, vehicles, and a shiny new attraction to snoop around. Also, prepare yourself for a bit of a change in Frank's physique, he seems to have been surviving on a fast food filled diet since the last outbreak, so he's put on a couple of pounds!
There are also new improvements to the technical aspects of the game, such as improved network performance, load time optimisations, and the co-op experience.
Finally, for fans of the first game who were a little bit miffed that picture taking was off the cards in the sequel, you'll be able to snap away and earn Prestige Points with your pictures once more, so look out for images that tick the horror, drama, erotica, humour, and brutality boxes. [Joystiq]
