Dead Rising 3 aiming for ‘Uncharted-level fidelity’

Randomly generated zombies promise "many permutations."

Dead Rising 3 will have Uncharted-level fidelity for Dead Rising 3, according to senior producer Jason Leigh. Speaking to OXM, Leigh said it will ‘feel like that kind of game’ no matter the angle.

“We kind of cram in the fidelity that you’d expect from a linear experience like Uncharted,” Leigh said, “and we try and do it everywhere so regardless of the angle you’re taking through the world, it feels like you’re playing that kind of game. [Our design team] has essentially hand-crafted spaces. You’re not going to come across a cookie-cutter sort of world.”

Interiors will be rendered as in-detail as exteriors, according to Leigh. The “majority of spaces are enterable,” he said.

Zombies are randomly generated in Dead Rising 3, and beause of this, you’ll see some diverse undead roaming about.

“Because our scarring system, clothing system, and the body/head systems are all randomized, you could potentially see many permutations,” Leigh said. “They’re not all pre-modelled.”

Dead Rising 3 is due out at Xbox One’s launch on November 22.

    I’m interested, but State of Decay has ruined zombie games for me by being so damn good.

    • Zackasaur

      Yeah, State of Decay looks way cooler.

      • McPoo

        It’s brilliant, I’d definitely recommend it. The only zombie game I’ve played that captures what it might feel like to be in the middle of an outbreak.

        • Yuri4prez

          Ah yes, State of Decay. I would love to play that game, if only I still had a 360. Why oh why couldn’t that game come out back when I still played the xbawks.

          Maybe one day perhaps.

          • McPoo

            I believe it’s on Steam Early Access, if that’s an option for you?

            • Yuri4prez

              Really? I’ll look into that. Thanks for the heads up!

    Does this game look pretty awesome? Yes.
    Is it worth buying an Xboxone for? Hell no.

    While I am a fan of the DR series, I don’t see why Capcom is limiting one of it’s last more or less successful franchises to just one console.

    Deep Down I can understand. New IP.. Maybe it’ll make it, maybe not, but a numbered sequel on one console? A console that will not sell in their native country? Capcom has never been known to be very smart with their ip’s.

    Taking into consideration the cost of next gen games, and Capcom’s financial hardships, I just can’t see this game staying exclusive for long.

      Microsoft simply said to Capcom “we’ll give you $X to keep it an Xbox One exclusive.” Capcom’s finance team then did some calculations,likely weighing the % of Dead Rising 2 games sold out of the total number of copies sold, applied that to their sale expectations for Dead Rising 3 and found that Microsoft’s $X amount was greater than the amount they would receive on the Sony platform.

      Put simply: money talks (especially to a company like Capcom) :)

    I reserve considerable doubts about this even approaching Uncharted-level fidelity. This just sounds llike false PR.

      Maybe between UCGA (VITA) and UC 1. :P

      TBF, the game looks pretty good so far but the truth will be revealed on actual w/ actual retail.

      Too many “running on dev kits” speculations across the net.

      “False PR” is redundant. They only mentioned Uncharted because they want to have some sort of manipulative cognitive association with that property’s production values. We all know this, I’m just reiterating because it never fails to make me shake my head. They’re not really specifically concerned with Uncharted. They could have mentioned any high-profile series, like GTA. What they really mean is “bloated-budget Hollywood triple-A plat runaway hit”.

      Actually, I’m almost certain that would turn a lot of people OFF from this game.

  • King-Podigy-X

    To bad it won’t

  • DietSoap

    Already looks like it’s not the case in the screens and videos they’ve released, I don’t see that changing in a month… ESPECIALLY the areas they’ve publicly declined to show.

  • Laharl

    Anyone else think it’s kinda sad that a MS exclusive is comparing itself to a PS exclusive?

    Like, you couldn’t find one extra pretty MS game to compare to?

  • Nitraion

    Don’t give statement it will be like “X” game….. that just rise people expectation and will be backfired if it doesn’t go with expectation…
