Dead Rising 4 is the (you guessed it) fourth installment in the Dead Rising game series where the principle of the game is to construct your own innovative weapons you can use against an army of undead. The game has gained popularity due to its original concept where players use preposterous means of combining different objects like a paddle and a chainsaw with something like duct tape.
According to the announced details, Dead Rising 4 should be available sometime next month. Xbox One players that are barely able to wait for the game to drop can find a little comfort in the fact that Microsoft has made it available for pre-load. Pre-load is a feature available for those that have pre-ordered the game, regardless of which version they have selected. Unfortunately, pre-load isn’t available for the PC version. Pre-loading allows users to prepare the game ahead of its release, so when it finally releases, all they have to do is play it. The files for Dead Rising 4 amount to a total of 36.34 GB, making it bigger than the last installment in the series by a full 10 GB.
Dead Rising 4 was confirmed to not be part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere project. Play Anywhere was introduced by Microsoft as a means for players that own both a PC computer operating with Windows 10 and an Xbox One transition from one platform to the other with save files for a game updated on both devices as they progress. Also, players that buy the game on one platform will not be required to buy it on the other platform. Windows 10 is a critical requirement for this service. Unfortunately for Dead Rising fans that own both devices, they will have to invest their time wisely and prioritize a platform.
