Dead Rising 3 has multiple endings

Capcom Vancouver talks character progression, weapons and endings.

Dead Rising 3 will have “somewhere between six and ten” endings, Capcom Vancouver producer Mike Jones told Official Xbox Magazine.

“I think typically we’ve always had about somewhere between six and ten, something like that,” said Jones at Gamescom. “There’s a handful of branching points that make a significant difference, and whether you’re able to play beyond the normal timeline or not.

“Previous Dead Risings would always have modes like the Overtime mode, where you get to discover the truth behind everything that’s been going on,” he said. “So there’s not just the six days, we’re going beyond that if you make the right story decisions. So it’s not like choose-your-own-adventure crazy infinite endings, there’s a finite amount, but they all [correspond to] meaningful story decisions that you make as you play through.”

He also revealed that level ups will allow protagonist Nick to spend attribute points on various character and weapon categorizes, with the latter making it easier to create new weapons and that, “you can combine anything with anything, anywhere.”

The game will also have a SmartGlass-exclusive mission, which is activated by finding a dead PDA-carrying military agent.

Dead Rising 3 will be an Xbox One launch title, which will release on November 22 this year.

    Is everyone doing the Harlem Shake in that picture or something?

  • SuperLuigi

    Niceeee once I finish watch dogs I will pick this game up!

  • kiri25

    Cool, I’ll pick this up once it jumps to ps4

    • Solomon_Kano

      If ever. Remember the first Dead Rising… ?

      • Keegs79

        Yeah. It was published by Capcom. This one isn’t so its not coming on the PS4 since Microsoft is the publisher.

        • kiri25

          As was mass effect one which guess what came to ps3. The fact is dr is capcoms ip so if they want to do a complete trilogy like the mass effect trilogy they can. Again it’s capcoms ip so they can do with it what they want. The originsl dr3 may not hit ps4 but they could if they wanted to do dr3:plus and publish on ps4.

        • Solomon_Kano

          And even without MS publishing, Capcom never let it leave the 360. Which was the point. Well, unless you count Chop til You Drop, I guess.

          • Yuri4prez

            Dead Rising came out BFORE the PS3 did! After Capcom saw nobody was buying it, they skipped on releasing it.
            After a couple of years and the PS3 selling well, Dead Rising 2 made it multi console. By that time, capcom figured DR1 was old news, and never released it.

            You think DR1 never came left the Xbox due to loyalty to Micro Soft? HAHAHAHAHAHA Every other IP except that didn’t stay exclusive, did it?

            • Solomon_Kano

              Because I definitely said it’s loyalty. Yes. That must be it.

              And clearly Capcom chose not to port it because they DIDN’T want further sales. Brilliant.

              And obviously being out before the PS3 stopped them from porting it later. You know, because the PS3 releasing 3 months after the game came out was far too late.

              My God, thank you for enlightening me so. I don’t know what I’d have done without you.

              • Yuri4prez

                Good for them, simply put, Capcom didn’t hesitate to release Dead Rising 2 and OFT on both consoles. I never said that DR1 sold poorly. Where the hell did you get that? Regardless if the PS3 came out a whopping 3 months after DR1 did means nothing. The PS3 took years to compete with the 360! When it did, Capcom had already finished DR2, released it multi, and moved on.

                I owned a 360 once upon a time, and I bought that thing for DR, Oblivion and F.E.A.R
                2 of them came to PS3, while DR1 did not. All I’m saying is, for whatever reason Capcom never released it on PS3, it had nothing to do with MS having any kind of say in keeping it exclusive like the xbots like to think.

                All consoles will get Dead Rising 3. Mark my words.

                • Solomon_Kano

                  > it had nothing to do with MS having any kind of say in keeping it exclusive

                  I never said MS had anything to do with it staying, so I’m not sure what you were trying to prove in the first place then.

                  • Yuri4prez

                    Never said you did either. The reason for DR1 not coming to PS3 is Capcom’s reasons, not due to MS

                    The same way DR3 will either come to the PS4 or it won’t. Capcom’s reasons, not due to MS

                    • Solomon_Kano

                      > The reason for DR1 not coming to PS3 is Capcom’s reasons.

                      Which… is what I originally said, hence “Even without MS publishing.”

                      So what was the purpose of your response? You read some extra stuff into my post and responded just to say what I said in the first place.

                • kiri25

                  Well I wouldn’t go so far as to say I know 100% but I’m rather 99.9% positive dr3 will be on ps4

                • Budgiecat

                  It’s just Capcom being Capcom.

                  Which in other words is……STUPID

              • bloodiOS

                Hmm… I’m thinking the reason they didn’t want to release the first Dead Rising on PS3 because at the time, they haven’t a single clue of how to code for that pain-in-the-ass machine.

                • Solomon_Kano

                  That would make sense. My only question would be what stopped them from porting later though. They released Lost Planet around the same time and ported it in 08.

                  • bloodiOS

                    Assuming that they finally somewhat got the coding down post-2007, I think they might have considered the possibility. but chose not to since Resident Evil 5 was coming out and they were hyping it up and didn’t want another zombie game interfering with it, maybe…

      • Sae-Won Yoon

        If not a ps4 version, can I at least hope for a PC version?

        • Solomon_Kano

          I wonder. It’s a launch title, so it probably won’t leap to PC too soon, since that’d be one less reason to own an Xbox One early on, but Capcom’s been doing more PC releases of late.

          Seems like it could happen.

    • fixmanfoxman

      Its produced by Microsoft so its an exclusive

      • zeothedeathgod

        mass effect, theres been a few others. just saying.

      • Yuri4prez

        Oh please! Not this excuse again…

        MS is publishing the game, they have no part in the development of it. MASS EFFECT had more MS involvement, and guess where that went?

        Xbox fans are dreaming if they think this will never go multi platform!

        think about it, with the lousy way Capcom has cared for it’s iP’s, outsourcing to 3rd parties to make they’re most successful properties (Lost Planet, RE, DMC, etc) and losing money on compete bombs left and right, it will only be a matter of time before we see DR3 on PS4.

        Capcom cannot afford to leave one of the last half way successful franchises on 1 system, and I’m sure thats already the plan. MS needs to announce games, and if it will get enough people to buy the system, they can go back to trying to be Nintendo and Apple, and ONCE AGAIN push actual video games to the side. Just like they did with the 360.

        I remember back in the days, xbox fans swearing Sony will never get Lost Planet, Dead Rising, Bioshock, Mass Effect, etc. and it did. Notice the example of games I mentioned all have something in common with Dead Rising 3? They are all 3rd party games that MS has no say whatsoever in what systems they go to.

        I’m happy for the Xbox fans. They are actually getting some games for a change. Will that last? Well, did it on the 360?

        If I had to guess, I would say Dead Rising 3 will be on the PS4 by around the end of 14, begining of 15. Just watch.

          “Definitely not a timed exclusive, it’s an Xbox One game. We see a lot of this online. It’s not coming to PS4 or PC.”

          • kiri25

            Sorry Sal but you left this part out

            ” though you’ll have to take Jonty’s word for that. ‘

            i Recall the samething being said about Mass Effect.
            The fact remains Dead Rising is Capcoms IP and yhe way around the DR3 exclusive, is capcom releases a DR3:Plus or bundles it as a complete trilogy.

            My point unless the game is owned by MS, Sony, or Nintendo 3rd party exclusives are nvr a guarantee and of course an MS rep is going to say its not going multi so u buy the Xbone to play it.

            • Sal Romano

              You’re quoting out of context.

              It’s also apparently “excellent”, though you’ll have to take Jonty’s word for that.

          • Yuri4prez

            What did MS say about Mass Effect 2 coming to PS3? Then part 3?

            “You can ONLY get the whole Mass Effect experience on Xbox 360?

            Less than a year later, the entire Trilogy was on PS3.

            The days of the 3rd Party Exclusive are dead. Works both ways, Xbox has gained some 3rd party Sony games too.

      • syaznifaiq

        sorry but in this era .. the only confirmed exclusive is first party game .. the different between ryse and dead risng 3 is the developer … ryse is pretty much confirmed to be xboxne exclusive becoz crytek does not have enough fund to published their own game . and ryse ip probably belong to microsoft .

        but capcom is totally different level , they are major dev and publisher , sure they have enough money to published their own game and dead rising ip belong to them

    • Joe Vicious

      Published by Microsoft, keep dreaming

  • captainhowdy

    I can’t wait to play this on my Xbox One.

  • fixmanfoxman

    Glad guys on this website aren’t hating on Xbox like other websites

    • bloodiOS

      Oh, they just aren’t here… yet.

      • fixmanfoxman

        At the announcement of Xbox there were lots of haters but now not even one

        • bloodiOS

          I guess they just grew tired of doing it all the time. Seriously, that stuff is exhausting.

        • Sevyne

          Well there was a lot to hate about that announcement. It’s died down quite a bit since then though. Honestly, I just think at this point most of us feel that you should get what you want. Who are we to judge?

    • Peacenutman

      That’s the reason I love this website, even though most people here are pro-playstation, but not rabid hating fanboys.

    • Joe Vicious

      There are a few already. Losers have nothing better to do with their time

  • CosmicNova

    Did they really need to announce this, didn’t the previous games also have multiple endings?

  • InternatlGamer3

    Thats nice but im gonna be just fine with a PS4 and Deep Down. Dead Rising was fun though most people i know hate the second Dead Rising game.

    • Yuri4prez

      Agreed. A part of me is a little sad that Dead Rising is going to be an Xbox launch game when everyone got the last two.

      Oh well. Not like PS4 players won’t get it anyway.

  • Budgiecat

    I still need to start and finish Dead Rising 1….

  • Bob Obb

    Honestly nothing at all about this game looks appealing to me. The first one was great though, only marred by bad load times

  • Elvick

    Nice muscles, and bear.

  • Joe Vicious

    Can’t wait!
