New Difficulty Modes, Customization, Free Trial Coming to Dead Rising 4
Since Dead Rising 4 released on Dec. 6, players have killed over seven billion zombies, eclipsing the population of planet Earth. You’ve also taken over three million photos and selfies, eclipsing most of the Kardashian family on any given weekend.
To offer current players further engagement with Frank’s world, I’m excited today to announce that we’re introducing two new game difficulty modes and releasing a Street Fighter outfit pack, both free to all players. This is accompanied by a patch fixing several bugs we’ve been tracking since launch.
To attract new players to Dead Rising 4, we are also releasing a one hour timed trial.
The mayhem continues with two all-new difficulty modes
Frank will need to be a lot more careful and aware of his surroundings when trying to survive on a higher difficulty. Enemies do more damage; Frank’s weapons break faster and food restores less health than before. Keep your eyes peeled, watch your back, and don’t forget to scrounge for every weapon – you are going to need them.
The new difficulty modes will be available to players on Jan 30.
Frank West Meets Street Fighter
While in game, just visit your wardrobe and you will find these five outfits for your ultimate zombie fighting experience.
The outfits will be available in game on Jan 30. Handsome fighters never lose battles!
Play for Free with Limited Timed Trial
For those that have yet to face the horde in Dead Rising 4, we’re excited to announce the availability of a 60-minute timed trial experience for Xbox One. The trial will allow new players to earn achievements and carry saved game progress into the full game should they decide to purchase at the end of the trial period. Players can experience both single player Story Mode as well as Multiplayer during the trial period.
The timed trial experience will be available beginning Jan 31.

Spring has begun, and with it comes warmer weather, longer days and all-new downloadable content for Dead Rising 4.
In Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising, Frank West has become the newest member of Willamette’s horde in an all-new single-player story, releasing April 4 for Xbox One and Windows 10.
Frank Rising explores what happens to Frank after an all-new outbreak in Willamette. Frank is infected and wanders the city beaten, bloody and driven only by a need to feast. When a former ally discovers him, he is written off as incurable. Luckily, he’ll find help from an unlikely resource. As Frank begins to recover he’ll need to race to find a permanent cure while developing all-new abilities and strength. Unfortunately, he can no longer eat food to stay alive and must feast on others to survive. As he is trying to save himself, Frank learns that several survivors he cares about are trapped in the city with him and he must rescue them – and himself – before the government closes his case file for good and wipes the city off the map.
Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising is included as part of the Dead Rising 4 Season Pass, which is available for purchase in the Microsoft Store. Players can also get the pack as a standalone purchase for $9.99 USD, or get the game and Season Pass together in the Dead Rising 4 Digital Deluxe Edition.
Spring also means it’s time to return to your favorite golf course. Once you’ve mastered the outbreak in Willamette it’s time to master the greens in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf, coming soon for Xbox One and Windows 10.
With multiple holes of pure wanton destruction, in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf players will flip zombies the bird as they navigate the greens in the Willamette Mall and surrounding town. Unlock specialized golf clubs, costumes and balls as Frank West provides play-by-play commentary for swings, birdies, and shots. Collect Power-Ups to take the game to the next level and take out zombies with explosive style while keeping swings low and the kill count high. Hone course skills to perfection in single player, fight for the high score online in a 4-player multiplayer, or join friends in your living room with turn-based co-op.
Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf is included as part of the Dead Rising 4 Season Pass, which is available for purchase in the Microsoft Store. Players can also get the pack as a standalone purchase for $9.99, or get the game and Season Pass together in the Dead Rising 4 Digital Deluxe Edition.
If you haven’t had a chance yet to pick up Dead Rising 4, download the game from the Microsoft Store and play the first hour for free before you buy. Once you finish the game, help save Frank and return to the mall, mini golf style. We’ll be sharing more details on the release date for Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf soon.
I'm sort of DR fatigued. Played through DR, DR2 and DR2 off the record over the last few months on PS4. Prior to that played DR3 on the PC and already have DR4 on the PC (but not started). Had I known it was coming so soon I might have held off with the PC version, but given I only paid about £9 for it on the PC it will undoubtedly be more on the PS4.
