‘Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package’ Coming To PS4 This December
Dead Rising 4 launched for the Xbox One last December, and developer Capcom Vancouver has continued to dole out updates for the zombie-infested sandbox title. However, the game was initially announced as a timed exclusive for the Xbox One, and the time has finally come for the game to invade the PlayStation 4 as Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package.
DEAD RISING 4: FRANK’S BIG PACKAGE COMING TO PS4
This reveal was made last week, and patrons were allowed to demo the game at PAX West. As the obscenely unfunny subtitle implies, Frank’s Big Package will be the complete Dead Rising 4 experience, bearing the base game and all of its DLC.
A new “Capcom Heroes” mode will be included, too. Therein, Frank West can don costumes in the likeness of familiar Capcom faces and use their powers. The costumes that have been revealed thus far are Cammy and Zhangief from Street Fighter, Mega Man X from his eponymous series, and Sissel from the criminally overlooked Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective. Over twelve outfits will be included in total. Moreover, Xbox One and PC players will receive this content as a free update when Frank’s Big Package launches.
While it’s always nice to see a game reach a wider audience, this is one title I don’t recommend. Regardless of how puritanical you are regarding Dead Rising’s intricacies, Dead Rising 4 was still a weak offering overall. Additional content is nice and all, but there’s only so much it can benefit the core experience.
December 5 is when Dead Rising 4: Frank’s Big Package will launch for Sony’s incumbent console. It will cost $49.99. Likewise, the “Capcom Heroes” DLC will arrive on the Xbox One and PC that same day.
