Dead Rising 2 doubles up the carnage with co-op

April 20, 2010

What fun is killing hordes of zombies alone?

With Dead Rising 2, two Chucks is all that’s required to massacre tens of thousands of zombies. Capcom confirmed last week at Captivate 2010 that the title will feature live co-op, allowing friends to jump on and drop off from your undead mutilating campaign.

While the co-op system isn’t as free as players may want it to be (there’s no truly tandem actions such as special 2-man weapons or pushing each other around in wheel chairs) it’s immersible enough that players can create any sort of game within the game… essentially, a game of pretend in a world with thousands of blood-thirsty zombies.

To use the feature, players must push the right button on the directional pad and send an invite to a friend with the game. After a load time to synchronize the games, both players can go about their merry way through Fortune City.

I look forward to racing Jonathan with chainsaw-equipped motorcycles. That’s wholesome family entertainment right there.
