Dead Rising 2 Will Have Online Co-op and Exclusive Xbox DLC

Every fighting game fan in the world is recovering from the Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 teaser, but don’t forget that Capcom is looking to make noise later in the year with Dead Rising 2. Dead Rising was a decent game, but part 2 is going to feature online co-op. I know how much you all love online co-op.

And for Xbox 360 owners you will have a chance to experience Dead Rising 2 before anyone else. Instead of releasing a demo, Dead Rising will have a prologue DLC called Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO. This DLC will take place after the 1st game and before the 2nd to fill in the gap of what happened in the Dead Rising Universe.

Here is an excerpt from the latest Dead Rising 2 press release.

Players who might need some help or simply want to share the zombie bashing fun with a friend will now be able to play in online 2-player co-op. Simply use the in-game transceiver to call for assistance at any time and once your partner has accepted, they will arrive by your side for double the action.

Ahead of the full game, Capcom will release original downloadable content exclusively on Xbox Live with Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO. This Prologue consists of unique content not available in the full retail release of Dead Rising 2 and will introduce new protagonist Chuck Greene as he and his daughter find themselves caught in the desert town of Still Creek that has been overrun with zombies. Set two years after the Willamette incident and three before the action of Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO will help bridge the gap between the two titles and give players a taste of the new gameplay they will experience in Dead Rising 2 as they create combo weapons, rescue survivors and take on a ruthless Psychos before making their escape.
