Microsoft Announces New Dead Rising 4 Content; Play as Zombie Frank

Frank is infected, cure is needed, you must find it.

Microsoft has announced some of the upcoming content scheduled for Dead Rising 4, which includes a new single-player campaign and a new mini golf mini-game.

The single-player content is titled Dead Rising 4: Frank Rising, and it explores the idea of Frank West becoming infected with the zombie infection. It is scheduled to release on both the Xbox One and PC April 4 for $10. Also noteworthy, this expansion will also come as a standalone purchase.

Check out a brief description of the DLC down below:

Frank Rising explores what happens to Frank after an all-new outbreak in Willamette. Frank is 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.

In addition, Dead Rising 4 will be receiving a mini golf mini-game titled Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf. There is no set release date for the expansion, but it seems like it is scheduled to release sometime this Spring.

Check out the official description of Super Ultra Dead Rising 4 Mini Golf down below:

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 provide 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

Microsoft is also offering players interested in the latest entry of the Dead Rising series to try the first hour of the game for free, by simply downloading the demo from the Microsoft Store.

Dead Rising 4 is available now for Xbox One and PC.
