Capcom has upped the ante for strangeness in their upcoming zombie sequel Dead Rising 2 with a trailer that shows how competitive multiplayer works in a game set in a pseudo-Vegas…a pay-per-view event? Check out the full trailer after the jump.
Instead of operating within the game’s open-world architecture Capcom has opted for tighter arenas set in a competitive event called ‘Terror is Reality’. This makes perfect sense in a play-balance respect, as trying to run all over Dead Rising 2’s Fortune City hunting for other players to rend limb from limb could get tedious.
Balanced play or not, this is the game that lets you force zombies to wear blender hats. Count me in!
Dead Rising 2 will be released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PC.
