Build a plane and escape the doomed city.

Dead Rising 3 is set in the fictional city of Los Perdidos, California, according to a Siliconera source. The town is locked down after the zombie outbreak, allowing no man leave. Rick – an auto mechanic and the game’s protagonist – hatches a plan with a group of survivors to get out of the doomed city.

Rick’s idea is to restore a plane and escape Los Perididos before the city is completely wiped out by a bomb.

The game has a drift of themes surrounding illegal immigration, said the source. A character called Red leads a group of infected people unregistered by the government. There are also uninfected psychopath characters, who went bonkers after the outbreak. You’ll fight one psychopath, a biker, who drives a motorcycle with a steam roller attached to it.

Earlier today, Capcom teased a forthcoming Dead Rising 3 announcement. If anything, confirmation shouldn’t be too far off.
