Microsoft Corp. this week demonstrated Dead Rising 4 for the Xbox One and the PC.
The preview build included an arsenal of weaponry to destroy zombie hordes, including explosive firework arrows, an assault rifle, and new vehicles.
The build included a mission in which Frank West must investigate a fire station and take a picture of a poster to gather evidence. At the fire station, West finds an Exo Suit that can be used to beat zombies to a pulp.
New gameplay includes kill count combos that allow users to execute a new super with the Y + B buttons combined.
