We all thought Frank West was out covering wars between the events of Dead Rising and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, but that's not the case. Turns out, he became a celebrity after the Willamette incident -- and like every star out there, West eventually turned to the bottle. Fame must be pure torture, you guys.
Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, sees Wilamette survivor and hero of Dead Rising, photojournalist Frank West, take centre stage as players experience a very different interpretation of events in this, a reimagining of the Fortune City outbreak. Forget what took place in Dead Rising 2, this is Frank’s story told as only he can.
This alternate storyline means an all new Dead Rising 2 experience; with Frank facing new missions, new enemies, new combo-weapons with which to defeat them plus a brand new Fortune City attraction to explore. Complimenting the new narrative and action of Dead Rising 2: Off The Record are enhancements to elements such as the save system and the co-op experience to deliver more satisfying gameplay. Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is scheduled for release on PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PCs this autumn.
