Dead Rising 3 plans to take weapon modificaton to its most welcome and illogical conclusion: ridiculous jury-rigged vehicles to splatter the zombie hordes as you drive around the enormous open city. Examples include the RollerHawg: a hybrid between a motorcycle and Steamroller with flamethrower attachments.
Oh baby. We've got the screenshots below. Dead Rising 3 releases in November as an Xbox One exclusive launch title.

Capcom have published a new trailer for Dead Rising 3, which is currently exclusively available through IGN. Though it's entirely CG, it brilliantly encapsulates the silly shenanigans we've come to love from the series, and helps to assuage our fears that the Xbox One exclusive may have lost its fun factor.
We'll likely see more of Dead Rising 3's enormous open city at Gamescom. Matt and Carl are packing their last few bits as we speak.Click here to read more...
Did anyone else pass out through boredom while watching Dead Rising 3's brown E3 debut? Luckily Blue Castle haven't forgotten the most important thing about Dead Rising - running around in hilariously inappropriate clothes - and have issued a few screenshots to prove it.
Dead Rising 3 is out this year as an Xbox One launch title, featuring a seamless open city that's larger than both previous games combined. And servbot hats.Click here to read more...
This deal for Dead Rising 2 provides one of the lowest prices we’ve seen for the PC version in a while. A saving of a fiver is available over the next best offer from HMV, although we should probably mention that you will be need to use Games For Windows Live to play.
Although Chuck Greene didn’t have the charm that previous protagonist Frank West brought to the fray, Dead Rising 2 was an enjoyable romp through another round zombie slaying sandbox action. It wasn’t perfect by any means, but for £3 you can’t really argue with the value for money here. Thanks to Storm360 @ HUKD!
This offer from GAME brings Frank West’s return down to its lowest price yet for the PC version. With a few retailers being out of stock, it ends up being £3 cheaper than the next best offer coming from 101CD and its affiliates. If you do decide you want in on this deal, bear in mind that there is currently a 2-3 day wait for dispatch on this one.
Tom declared it the best instalment of the series, but those who have already played Dead Rising 2 may end up with a sense of déjà vu during their playthrough. Still, there are plenty of zombies to slay, the camera returns, and co-op is a blast. For under a tenner I’d say it’s definitely worth a look if you’ve yet to do so. Thanks to Syzable @ HUKD!
This offer from The Hut brings Frank West’s return down to its lowest price yet for the PS3 version. Falling below the magic £10 mark, it means there is a saving of just under a fiver in comparison to the next best deal available.

Wow, a CD Wow deal that isn't an import. How retro. Anyways, you can currently get a PC version of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record for £8.49, which will save you £1.50 as well as bringing the price well below that magic tenner watershed. Tifili's price is slightly lower but they charge for delivery.
Capcom Vancouver, the developer formerly known as Blue Castle Games and the outfit behind Dead Rising 2, appears to be embarking on two new projects if recently-discovered job listings are anything to go by. According to a Creative Heads job description, they have "two unannounced projects in the pipe" and are looking for a design director who has "experience implementing compelling content in third-person action games."
Could this third person action game be Dead Rising 3? Reports are rife that the third part of the series is already in production and will be set in quarantined Californian town Los Perditos... so watch this space. [via Gamerzines]
This offer from Zavvi and The Hut brings Frank West’s return down to its lowest price yet. Falling below the magic £15 mark, it means there is a saving of just over £4 in comparison to the next best deal available.
Tom declared it the best instalment of the series, but those who have already played Dead Rising 2 may end up getting bored during their playthrough. Still, there are plenty of zombies to slay, the camera returns, and co-op is a blast. At £13 I’d say that’s not too shabby at all. Thanks to Gingerrambo @ HUKD!
Amazon dropped their price for the zombie-stomping spin-off, and not long after Play decided to price match. That means not only do you get to save yourself £3 over the next best pre-order offer from Choices UK, but you have a choice of where to get it from. As for game, it’s a retelling of the second title of the series, but throwing Frank West back into the main character role, complete with his camera. New missions, weapons, enemies and vehicles abound, and a sandbox mode has been included so you can explore the city at your own pace. For under £20 on a console, I’d say that wasn’t bad going at all. Thanks to xthundercat1978 @ HUKD!
Dead Rising 2 may not be perfect or even a particularly comprehensive evolution of the original, but it's certainly expansive and great for epic freeform zombie-killing rampages. The new combo weapon creation system is a right laugh when used properly, resulting in some ludicrous killing machines cobbled out of the most unlikely household objects. Fear the drill bucket! Why not check out Tom's top ten list of the best (and most ridiculous) combo armaments if you're not yet sold on the idea?
Ok zombie fans, if you like picking up pretty much any object that you come across in Dead Rising 2 and beating the undead back to their graves, but you've completed the game and all of its DLC, then you might want to think about picking up Dead Rising 2: Off The Record when it comes out in October. The game takes place in an alternate reality where Frank West has taken Chuck Greene's place, and he's brought his camera along for the ride, so you'll be able to earn PP by taking pictures again. You can pre-order a copy of the game on either the Xbox 360 or PS3 for £22.85 over at ShopTo, which should save you over £2 on both versions.
