Capcom Teams up with Playboy for Dead Rising 2
Playboy magazine to be featured in the zombie sequel.
Capcom confirmed that it has partnered with Playboy magazine to include content from its ‘popular’ publication in its upcoming action title Dead Rising 2.
When players discover the Playboy magazine in the game, they will be in for a treat. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with a free 1 yr subscription. Here is the official word:
“Players that discover the Playboy magazine in the game will receive a unique and special upgrade for Chuck Greene, the main character in Dead Rising 2. Furthermore, players will come across Playboy ads and billboards that will feature specially selected issues from the magazine’s 57-year history. The new magazine system for Dead Rising 2, which will feature Playboy along with various other publications, is an evolution of the popular book system from the original Dead Rising game. Along with the special Playboy issue, there will be a variety of different themed magazines that Chuck will be able to pick up for bonuses to use to help fend off the zombie hordes along the way.”
“The Sin City-type environment in Dead Rising 2, Fortune City, is a natural playground for the Playboy Bunnies,” said Seon King, Senior Director of Licensing for Capcom Entertainment, Inc. “We have integrated the Playboy brand throughout the game in ways that bring even more life to Fortune City and add to the user experience.”
The game is slated to release some time later this year for the Xbox 360, Ps3, and PC.
