Dead Rising 3 Demo Live Now, New Content Coming Soon

Today’s a big day for zombie fans; a new Dead Rising 3 demo is now available on Xbox One (“Xbox, Bing, Game Demos”), and Capcom today lifted the lid on the game’s first downloadable episode.

I’m sure the fact that today is Friday the 13th has nothing to do with it.

To learn more about Operation Broken Eagle, we chatted with the game’s executive producer, Capcom Vancouver’ s Josh Bridge.

Dead Rising 3 Operation Broken Eagle

Jeff Rubenstein, Xbox: Talk to us about the newly-announced DLC.

Josh Bridge, Capcom Vancouver: With all 4 of the Untold Stories of Los Perdidos experiences, you get to see the story of Dead Rising 3 unravel from a different point of view. You get to take on the role of a different character in each of the 4 and play through their story and how it ties into the overall plot and reveals how the outbreak unfolded in parallel to Nick Ramos attempting to escape. Each of the episodes have new weapons and a custom vehicle along with side missions and other goodies to collect and ace achievements with. The team had some fun with getting some pretty crazy weapons in there!

Xbox: How does playing as Spec Ops Commander Adam Kane differ from everyman Nick? What abilities or advantages does he have?

Capcom: As opposed to Nick, who is relatively good willed in nature facing military opposition, Adam is a by the books soldier with a crew of Spec Ops fighting for him. You get to take on some over the top military weapons and an armored vehicle that spews bullets. You get to take on missions that go against what Nick would have fought for, but as you discover through the story you can also relate to how Adam struggles to follow through on his difficult orders.

Xbox: As far as the demo is concerned, what should players be sure to seek out in the sandbox?

Capcom: We have some cool hidden goodies in the demo for players to dig for. Definitely check out the map for where the blueprints are around Ingleton. We have some cool combos to try out and even a Super Combo weapon called the Ultimate Grim Reaper. It is a multiple blueprint find, and super deadly when you get the fully stacked version. Don’t forget, after you make it or other combos, you can always pull them back out of the locker in the Safehouse and have another run at it.

Xbox: Have you been tracking Dead Rising 3′s most popular weapons, combos, and vehicles? What’s resonating most with the players?

Capcom: Overall, I have been really surprised by the sheer amount of completionists are out there playing our game. Lots of folks trying to ace all blueprints and combos created. We were really surprised by the excitement over the combo weapon Sentry Cat. Pretty much out there as far as a combo weapon, but think it being unpredictable is part of the charm. Looking at telemetry, the RollerHawg is king for killing with a vehicle…still get a kick out of seeing players sharing vids of them causing havoc with it.

Xbox: What tips can you offer for tackling nightmare mode?

Capcom: Definitely want to go in leveled up to about LV.20 with good range of combo weapons/vehicles ready to go in the lockers. The clock is quite fast, so for a first timer I would just focus on speed running the main missions. It is definitely possible to hit side missions as part of the run, but you will need to pre-plan you routes and which vehicles/weapons for the runs.

For more on Dead Rising 3, look out for Josh’s interview with Major Nelson later today on MNR 497.

Interview, Xbox One By Jeff Rubenstein

  • evilfangs .

    I still need 4 achievements for 1000 gamerscore and more content! I’ll never max this game out lol.

  • Jason Williams

    can you remotely queue up downloads on Xbox One like we can with 360? If not, is that coming?

    • http://123kinect.com Legreffer

      I tried to find out as well, but I got nothing so far.

      • Byyys

        Am i right in saying Microsoft still only allow you to download one item at a time via your Xbox, if your playing multilayer is stops downloading?
        That’s the case with the xbox360. don’t see it being different on xbone.

        • http://123kinect.com Legreffer

          That’s a good question…But I think you are right.

        • evilfangs .

          I wouldn’t see why it would stop downloading now what with the X1 having 3 operating systems.

          • http://123kinect.com Legreffer

            To have all the bandwidth to your online game.

        • CiDhed

          It doesn’t stop downloading unless you join a multiplayer match. I downloaded the COD:Ghosts update last night while building a car on Forza last night.

          • Byyys

            I’m talking about multilayer. don’t see why this is limited.
            if you have a slow connection it may be an issue for you.

            my speed is 120mbps+. downloading a full game and playing multilayer Xbox live at the same time shouldn’t lag with good internet speeds. people may disagree with downloading a big game and playing online. If that’s the case why cant people download 2-3 full games or demos at the same time, why limit it to 1 download item at a time especially on the xbone???

          • CiDhed

            Steam works the same way. Lag gets bad if I’m downloading on steam while playing my xbox though I only have 30/4 for internet. Bandwidth(or lack of) isn’t the only thing that causes lag. I would think xbox downloads are distributed across several servers like a torrent. Have you ever tried to play a game when torrents are running? Even if they aren’t capping out your bandwidth the network(router or internal NIC) still gets still has to deal with the I/O of all those packets. I suppose they could give you an option if you know your hardware/connection will be able to handle it but is it really that big of deal? With 120meg internet you should download pretty fast.

            I could be wrong on this. It’s Friday, ready to be off work.

    • Rykin

      Was looking for that option as well but can’t find it. God knows they hid the demos so well that the only way to find them is to do a bing search on the Xbox One so maybe this is the same way.

      • http://123kinect.com Legreffer

        There’s a Demo section on the X1 now.

  • A. J.

    Who’d have thought that slamming a traffic light on the ground would decimate zombies?

    • kevgallacher

      Traffic lights only kill 1 in 10 zombies?

      • A. J.

        Decimate:

        kill, destroy, or remove a large percentage or part of.

        drastically reduce the strength or effectiveness of (something).

        (historical) kill one in every ten of (a group of soldiers or others) as a punishment for the whole group.

        I’m going with the first definition.

        • kevgallacher

          The word you are looking for is ‘devastate’ or ‘obliterate’

          • A. J.

            Devstate doesn’t sound right either. I think obliterate is the best choice of the 3….

            Who’d have thought that slamming a traffic light on the ground would obliterate zombies?

  • Roberto Sanchez

    60 hours, 100%. PP trial has a hidden trial which was terrible

    • Mr XBob

      Lots of them are ‘hidden’, they become unlocked when you collect certain combo blueprints.

      • Roberto Sanchez

        Specifically one that appears when you kill 72k (which, for me, only appeared when I unlocked the 100,004 achievement), one then appears to kill 200k. The disappointment in my face with no achievement lol it was heartbreaking

    • evilfangs .

      Did you just create every combo weapon to get that achievement or is there a way to see what weapons I have made?

      • Roberto Sanchez

        There is no way to check, I made a list of all weapons and made them one by one. I had a coop friend give me items to make the weapons and the traded off. Very painful process, the achievement didn’t actually unlock publicly for me. I had to look at my list and it was there unlocked.

        • evilfangs .

          I have all 101 blueprints, so I should just go create each one until the achievement unlocks then?

          • Roberto Sanchez

            That’s what I did unfortunately …

          • evilfangs .

            What I’m creating is the combo and super combos yeah? So if I have say 23/37 super combos I could just check which ones I have got in my weapon locker then check the super combo blueprints and the ones I’m missing should once I’ve created them appear in my weapon locker?

          • Roberto Sanchez

            Yes, once you create one it appears in your locker. But if you pick one up someone elses weapon it also appears Ind your locker. Be careful of that. The mini chainsaw and tactical pistol you don’t make yourself, you acquire them, so make those too.

          • evilfangs .

            Cool so I’m not as far off the achievement as I thought lol.

            Combos are at 52/64 and super 23/37 so shouldn’t take me that long

          • evilfangs .

            Omg I’m going to cry. I just spent the last 2 hours creating combo and a few super combo weapons and was almost complete and my electric died and the game didn’t even save!!!

            I have to go do all that again….

          • Roberto Sanchez

            That is just kicking a man while he is down…

          • evilfangs .

            Indeed :(

            All this trouble for some stupid achievement which doesn’t mean a lot lol.

          • Roberto Sanchez

            It’s just so damn satisfying! Haha

          • evilfangs .

            Finally got that dam achievement lol now onto completing all the PP trails for 1000GS :(

          • Roberto Sanchez

            This is the fun part now haha I’ve played this game to death, not sure how much im excited to play any DLC at this point lol

    • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

      I’m stucked in that food creation pp trial, no matter how many combos I create, it just stays at 1. Did you notice something related?

      • Roberto Sanchez

        Omg! Yes! It was stuck with all foods! I was able to make progress with beer+beer=randomizer + beer. There is a bar in the mall which has like 20 beer bottles. That worked for me lol

        • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

          Thanks dude, I’ll try it latter! my zombies counter is also totally messed up, I got left 4 dead cheevo and now I got 125k Killed zombies, but I still didn’t max out the 72k pp trial…more 30k to go, lol!

          • evilfangs .

            It say’s on the PP trial I have 18,000 / 72,000 but I too have left 4 dead 100,004 zombies killed achievement.

            On the counter in game it say’s something like 85,000 zombies killed.

          • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

            Same as me, the whole thing is insane…you’ll need more 54k to complete this…

          • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

            let me ask you something, when you start a party and turn the chat on, does the game volume decrease?

          • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

            let me ask you something, when you start a party and turn the chat on, does the game volume decrease drastically?

          • evilfangs .

            I don’t know I haven’t used party chat.

          • Roberto Sanchez

            Actually I think the 72k pp trial doesn’t count vehicle kills. It might have to be done by hands or weapons. But the 200k trial let’s you use vehicles

          • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

            What?200k?oh boy, I think this weekend will a hollerhawg frenzy!

  • Gazza!!!

    Ultimate shout is an awesome weapon but after I seen how many zombies I needed to kill to max this out I can wait.

  • ElektroDragon

    Can anyone help me? I thought they got rid of time limits except in nightmare mode, so WHY am I seeing time limits in the normal game? Says I only have 5 days left??? :( I HATE time limits!

    • evilfangs .

      No they aren’t fully removed but you have plenty of time to do what ever you like.

      • ElektroDragon

        Ok thanks….

      • Mark Jones

        Plus you can restart the story at any time while keeping all of you proression or pick whatever chapter you want to do over..

  • IvanCD(MaidenLOKO)

    I’m having a good time with this game, new content is welcome!

  • DavidinCT

    Cool, looking forward to checking this one out. I was worried it would be like 1 and 2, just trying to get from point A to point B then back to A in a time frame, after a while it got old. As long as this is different, I might enjoy it..

  • Riddick Snipes

    Major you forgot to mention the demo is only 20 minutes long and can only be played twice per gamertag. Wow ms. Wow.

    • DavidinCT

      2 times? Oh, not really long enough to give it a real good shot. At least give the first mission/level to play over and over to really get a good feel for the game…

      • Riddick Snipes

        Watching ms make decisions is like looking at a baby crawling toward a wall at full speed. So you go over to the baby and turn him around and face him the other way. The baby takes one step then turns around and faces the wall again intent on banging its head. And b4 someone says it was capcoms decision, it doesn’t matter, ms should have said no. Its their system not capcoms.

        Trying being thankful. Many companies do not even offer a demo anymore. With that said, I will repeat what I said earlier.

        “What is more greedy? Someone that works hard for the money or someone that wants something for free? Enough said…”

        • Riddick Snipes

          Yeah ur right. It was silly of me too compare a gimped demo to a normal demo on 360 ‘sarcasm’. I worked hard for my 360 console and games and I don’t expect anything for free but I do expect to be able to compare 360 demos longetivity with this 20 min two times manure.

    • anointedsword

      Try being thankful. Many companies do not even offer a demo anymore. With that said, I will repeat what I said earlier.

      “What is more greedy? Someone that works hard for the money or someone that wants something for free? Enough said…” Oo

  • camilogilc

    I thought the way the DEMO Dead Rising 3 a tremendous shot in the arm from Microsoft was available.

    I mean, I’m going to test the game, then my friends come to my house, every one will want to play the demo to see how it is. But they will not be able to try!

    That potential customers could also buy the Xbox One testing an excellent game, I will not be able to evaluate the game, because I’ve used the “limit” of DEMO. Frankly huh.

  • Mark Jones

    Dead Rising 3 is by far the best in the series.. Grats to the dev team for making a turely awesome game…

  • Sanpei

    Keep going like this M$….2 times for a demo…Congrats !

    • anointedsword

      What is more greedy? Someone that works hard for the money or someone that wants something for free? Enough said…

      • Sanpei

        something for free ??? It’s a demo….Not a full game !!!

      • Riddick Snipes

        The second someone is a paying gold member. Douche.

  • Joseph Thornton

    2 tries at 20 minutes? So I already used one. Better save my last one in case a friend wants to see it. So much for that Demo.

  • Danny Hogan

    Amazing Game Capcom !! Keep up the support !!

  • http://www.Bl4ckSh33p.de/ Bl4ckSh33p

    Would be nice if you could get the DLCs in Germany if you own an imported version of the game. :-/

    • evilfangs .

      Should just be able to change your console region to say US or UK and get the DLC that way?

      ( You might need to change your region to the same region as the game but that’s unlikely due to games being region free )

      • Elias

        You could get banned for that. I dont think that will happen but it could.

  • evilfangs .

    I agree, thank god for snaps. At the moment I’m watching some catch up TV while going around in circles trying to get this dam 200,000 zombies killed trail.

  • Sanpei

    Really ?? Then all demos should be 20 mins and should be played only 2 times dumbass

  • evilfangs .

    Finally after a long grind I’ve completed DR3. My first and hopefully many to come 1000/1000 GS games on Xbox one.

  • Riddick Snipes

    Or u could start the demo then get a phone call and BAM!!!!! 1 try down …. 1 to go.
