Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster

Say cheese! Everyone’s favorite zombie-hunting photojournalist, Frank West, is back in action in the beautifully remastered Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster – launching digitally on Sept. 19, 2024 across Xbox Series XS , PlayStation5, and PC via Steam , with pre-orders available starting today! Brought back to life with Capcom’s RE ENGINE , Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster is the definitive remaster of the classic Dead Rising game from 2006 that delivered a fresh take on the zombie genre with incredible action, over-the-top combat, hordes of weapon choices , wacky costumes (trust us, they’re even wackier this time around), and a comedic yet compelling storyline.

If you’ve been living under a rock or have been trapped in a shopping mall the last 18 years, Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster introduces freelance photojournalist Frank West as he ventures to Willamette, Colorado after overhearing there is something unnatural going on in town. Frank soon finds out he is in the middle of a zombie takeover and has 72 hours to uncover the truth about this outbreak!

There are a bunch of new features and gameplay improvements in Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster that will have both veterans and newcomers falling in love with the game (again), including:

• Improved Graphics: Experience Willamette Parkview Mall being overrun by hordes of zombies like never before in up to 4K resolution with a 60 FPS frame rate!

• Updated Character Models: Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster introduces new, high-end character modeling for Frank West, the unhinged Psychopaths, NPCs like Brad, Jessie, Isabela, and the beloved Madonna, survivors of the outbreak, and the seemingly endless waves of zombies!

• Olá! Bonjour! Ciao!: For the first time ever, Dead Rising Deluxe Remaster comes fully packed with voiceovers for all characters in nine different languages, including English, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, French, Italian, German, Castilian Spanish, and Russian! The game will also have subtitles across 14 languages, including the aforementioned nine plus Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Polish, and Arabic*! ¿¿Cómo se dice WOW??

• Quality-of-(Undead) Life Improvements: Numerous adjustments and highly requested features have been added to the game, like:

  • Frank West now has the ability to move while aiming!
  • Aspiring photojournalists can customize action shots with filters to get the best glam shot of their favorite zombies!

  • New and improved NPC behaviors !
