“The Sleeper Hit of the Year”
“Dead Rising 3 is packing enough variety and goofy action to make it a good time”
“Capcom Vancouver has done a fine job of retaining the series’ personality while revelling in giving players more freedom – and more zombies – than ever before”
Shortly before Dead Rising 3 and Xbox One launched last month Josh Bridge completed a whirlwind tour of Europe to show off the game. While he was in London he sat down with Redbull to chat about the game’s development and how the studio worked how to create a fresh zombie game experience.
“We’re sitting in the dark with Capcom Vancouver’s Josh Bridge. We’re at a preview event for the Xbox One in the basement of London’s One Marylebone, a cavernous space of arches and shadows only half lit with Xbox-green mood lighting. If Dead Rising 3 were a horror game, you couldn’t pick a scarier place to play. Fortunately, after around 90 minutes of gameplay, the only thing that’s disturbing is how comfortably we’re blitzing swarm after swarm of undead shamblers into showers of red-grey pulp.”

As we’ve seen from Twitter there are plenty of people who’ve finished their first play-through of Dead Rising 3 and are busy working a second and third run. For the people who haven’t quite reached these heights we asked the design team to offer a few tips about how to get the most out of Dead Rising 3, the best ways to level up and the quickest ways to create the best arsenals and so on. Here’s their advice:
• There will always be the two components of a Combo Weapon next to the Blueprint. Even if you’re not planning on using the Combo Weapon you should still make it so it goes into your Weapons locker.
• Helping stranded survivors is a quick way to earn some extra PP.
• Players should definitely use the Weapon lockers found in safezones; it’s a great way to keep fully stocked up.
• Take the time early on to get ‘Gold’ in a couple of survival training sessions; it provides a huge boost of PP which can level you up multiple times.
• Explore interiors – there’s always something of value, and a lot of locations have hidden surprises.
• Pick up collectibles – they offer a lot of PP and are an easy way to level up at the start of the game.
• Use Combo Weapons – they kill a lot of zombies quickly and are an easy way to level up at the start of the game.
• Grind early, the first few levels come easy from killing zombies with Skill Moves and Combo Weapons.
• You don’t need to jog away from the zombies, get away fast by pressing LB to Sprint!
• If you get too far away from your survivor posse you can re-spawn them at a safe zone.
• Unlocking the combo food category allows you to make the best food for healing; this could help out players who are dying a lot.
• Each district has their own Super Combo blueprints that you can collect. The Super Combo Weapon’s blueprints will be scattered around the district it’s found in, so try finding them all before you move on to the next district!
• Stock up on weapons and head to the highway to go on a killing spree, sending your PP multiplier through the roof.
