Note: There’s no spoilers about Dead Rising 4’s ending within this article.
In an extremely questionable decision (well Dead Rising 4 has had a lot of them) the actual ending for Dead Rising 4 can only be seen if you play through the paid DLC which is coming out next year. If you’re a fan of the old Dead Rising games, you’ll remember that there was an “overtime” mode, which was always unlocked after you got the best possible ending in the base game, well it seems that Dead Rising 4’s “overtime” mode is behind a paywall.
This news has caused a lot of outrage towards the game, and it just adds up towards the many complaints about Dead Rising 4 from the hardcore fans of the series. Many fans were upset that Dead Rising’s core features were removed like the timer, and Frank West’s voice actor being changed. This paid overtime mode DLC on the otherhand has caused more anger than any other news about the game.
We do hope there’s some kind of word from Capcom about this, as it’s an awful practice to put a once free unlockable mode, as a paid DLC for the fans who have already been screwed out of a true Dead Rising game.
