Dead Rising 2: Case West – Frank West Is Back!

DeadRising2CaseWest_ElectricGunThingThis month sees the release of the latest downloadable content pack for Dead Rising 2. Going under the name “Case West”, this pack features the main protagonist from the original Dead Rising, Frank West and his trusty camera. Yep, you will be able to take photographs of Zombies again as Frank helps the hero of Dead Rising 2 – Chuck Green – to uncover the people responsible for the latest Zombie outbreak.

The pack also includes new weapons and combos such as “zap and shine” and the “reaper” as well as adding co-op functionality. Yes, you read that correctly. Case West finally adds the long awaited co-op action to Dead Rising. Awesome! Just imagine how much Zombies killing mayhem two people will be able to unleash. However, during single-player mode the AI will take control of Frank West. Interestingly enough, while Frank is in this mode he will be invincible. Now that could be very handy.

Check out the gameplay trailer to see an awful lot of co-op Zombie killing action from Case West.
