Dead Rising 4 is scheduled to launch later this year, and fans of the franchise are excited to get their hands on the game. Now Dead Rising 4 rating has been revealed for Australia, and given that how gory and violent the game is, it is no surprise that is has been rated R 18+.
According to Australian classification board, Dead Rising 4 rating is R 18+ due to High impact violence, blood and gore, online interactivity.
Dead Rising games are known for slaughtering hordes of zombies, its costumes and insane crafting system. However, the franchise is infamous for its unforgiving timer system. The timer system gave players a certain amount of time to complete the singleplayer campaign. Now the developers has removed this dreaded feature from Dead Rising 4.
According to Capcom Vancouver studio head Joe Nickolls, the studio did quite a lot of research on the timer and most of the gamers did not like the idea of a timer. It pisses off the gamers who try to find the hidden things while having timer on their heads.
He also said that Dead Rising 4 focuses on exploration so it would not make any sense if an optional timer was introduced.
The world has been designed with multiple levels of exploration. It’s so dense this time. There are stores, there are apartments above the stores, there are hidden areas and rooms.
While the timer system has been removed from the singleplayer campaign, players can challenge themselves multiplayer with friends.
Also a cutscene for Dead Rising 4 recently leaked online which showcased Frank and a young journalist. In the cutscene Frank and the journalist are investigating a lead on illegal human experimentation.
Dead Rising 4 is scheduled to release on December 6, 2016 for PC and Xbox One. However, the game is timed exclusive and will also release for PlayStation 4 on a later date.
