London, UK – February 11th, 2010 – Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Dead Rising 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the multi-million selling Dead Rising, will be released in Europe on September 3rd, in North America on August 31st and Japan on September 2nd for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system, PlayStation® 3 and PC platforms.

Furthermore Capcom is also pleased to announce that Xbox 360 gamers will be able to get an exclusive taste of Dead Rising 2’s signature gameplay with the release of its downloadable prologue, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO. Available as downloadable content only on Xbox LIVE® shortly before release of the full game, Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO, will introduce main protagonist and former motocross champion Chuck Greene and provide a link between the original game and the events that await players in the gambling paradise of Fortune City.

Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO was formally announced at Microsoft’s global media event, X10, which took place earlier today, in San Francisco. Attending media were able to experience the latest demo of Dead Rising 2. In addition to giving media the opportunity to explore the zombie infested casino, stores and other attractions on Fortune City’s North Strip, this demo also introduced a brand new feature - the ability for players to create improvised weapons by combining two items.

The Dead Rising series is renowned for letting players pick up and use everyday items to fend off hordes of the undead, but Dead Rising 2 adds a new twist with combination weapons. Take two objects, add a roll of tape plus the inventiveness and skilled hands of Chuck Greene and hey presto, an innocent water gun and a can of gasoline become a deadly flamethrower, while a garden rake and car battery combine to create an electrified zombie prod.

Creating and using combination weapons will not just result in novel ways to tackle Dead Rising 2’s shuffling cast of thousands as the more combo weapons a player uses, the more Prestige Points (PPs) they will rack up. Earn enough PPs and Chuck levels up, which in turn delivers its own benefits.

Dead Rising 2: CASE ZERO requires players to have an Xbox LIVE® membership to download. Further details including release date and pricing will be announced soon.

Hang on, we're talking about follow ups to the two greatest games of all time (Halo and Dead Rising) and a spit n' polish of the greatest game of all time (Perfect Dark Multiplayer).

If that doesn't excite you, you're already dead.

Which I might be, as I won't have time to play any of them. Go me!

Are people really that excited about another Halo game?

(i'm not trying to stir or anything, just being miserable)

Yes

Someone could have said to you a couple of months ago, are people really that excited about another call of duty game? Considering there have been more of those than halo games

You're using all the really annoying discussion cliches :D
