Yesterday, Capcom had held their yearly Captivate 2010 event to showcase all of their upcoming titles. Like usual, the net was flooded with tons of media goodies for various games. First up is Dead Rising 2, sequel to 2006′s much appreciated survival action adventure. There is a story trailer and some screenshots revealing a 2-player co-op campaign.
“Players who might need some help or simply want to share the zombie bashing fun with a friend will now be able to play in online 2-player co-op,” reveals Capcom. “Simply use the in-game transceiver to call for assistance at any time and once your partner has accepted, they will arrive by the player’s side for double the action. With hundreds of zombies on screen at any one time, the original Dead Rising forced gamers to take everyday objects they found in the Mall and use them as weapons. But now, in Dead Rising 2 with thousands of zombies filling every square inch of Fortune City, Chuck is going to need to be even more resourceful and inventive by combining weapons in order to save the day.”
Dead Rising 2 will launch simultaneously for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on August 31st, 2010.
