It’s been a while since Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 was announced and finally we are getting to hear more details about the title, today we heard about the Nightmare difficulty mode and what that brings to the game.
Dead Rising 3 producer Josh Bridge spoke to AusGamers and detailed what we should expect from the hard difficulty, here’s what he had to say:
“We purposely built a non time-restrictive mode and a completely time-restrictive mode – both following the same storyline.
“So if you want to, it’ll completely hand your ass to you with Nightmare Mode where the time-limit is going to be pushing you along a schedule – you’re going to have to meet and finish the missions at a certain time or you’re going to miss them; you’re going to miss the optional content; you’re going to run out of time – a bomb is going to likely nuke the whole area.
“You can only save in washrooms and it keeps that classic pressure, but if you want to have the freedom to explore… we have a bigger world and there’s even more stuff to do in it than any other Dead Rising, and if you want that and to take it all at your own leisure, that’s there for you. You can even hop between both modes if you want – it all goes to the one profile and saves all your experience points.”
This news will mostly come as a sigh of relief to many people, the previous two games both had time limits and that negatively affected a lot of peoples experiences. People who wanted to do the story at their own pace were not able to and it was often not very fun, fortunately those people who liked the strict time limits can now play on Nightmare difficulty meaning that everybody should be happy.
Let me know in the comments what you think of this news, personally I think it’s a shame that the game is not multi-platform as I think it looks great.
