Dead Rising 4 launched late last year on Xbox One before recently getting a release on PC, but 2017 has a lot in store for the game in the form of DLC. Today we learn that Capcom will be releasing the Frank Rising DLC on April 4th, which will be available as a standalone purchase of $9.99 or as part of the game’s season pass.
The Frank Rising DLC is a new story DLC that explores what happens to Frank after a new outbreak in Willamette. He’s “infected and wanders the city beaten, bloody and driven only by a need to feast. When a former ally discovers him, he is written off as incurable. Luckily, he’ll find help from an unlikely resource. As Frank begins to recover he’ll need to race to find a permanent cure while developing all-new abilities and strength. Unfortunately, he can no longer eat food to stay alive and must feast on others to survive. As he is trying to save himself, Frank learns that several survivors he cares about are trapped in the city with him and he must rescue them – and himself – before the government closes his case file for good and wipes the city off the map.”
That won’t be all the DLC that’s coming to Dead Rising 4 this year, as Capcom also announced that Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf will be coming sometime after the release of Frank Rising. That DLC has not received a release date, but it will also cost $9.99 standalone or can be received as part of the season pass. The following is a description of the DLC:
“With multiple holes of pure wanton destruction, in Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf players will flip zombies the bird as they navigate the greens in the Willamette Mall and surrounding town. Unlock specialized golf clubs, costumes and balls as Frank West provides play-by-play commentary for swings, birdies, and shots. Collect Power-Ups to take the game to the next level and take out zombies with explosive style while keeping swings low and the kill count high. Hone course skills to perfection in single player, fight for the high score online in a 4-player multiplayer, or join friends in your living room with turn-based co-op.”
Dead Rising 4 is available for Xbox One and PC, though the game will likely be coming to PlayStation 4 at some point due to the game being a timed console-exclusive.
