Microsoft has announced that Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle will be released tomorrow.
On a blog over on Xbox News Wire, Executive Producer Josh Bridge revealed details on the content as well as the recent 13GB title update.
"We know folks had some frustration when they couldn’t pick up the weapon or food item they wanted if there was a bunch of stuff grouped together. Since there’s always a ton of stuff around in "Dead Rising 3", we found some use cases and reached out to some fans and we improved that in this update, which is really cool, he said of the update."
"Beyond that, we’ve got some more telemetry and found there were some issues with blueprints and PP-related achievements and trials. They weren’t unlocking properly depending on the order in which they were played, whether it was online or offline, so we addressed those. We also looked at various performance improvements. In this type of big open-world game with tons of zombies and the ability to do whatever you want to do, like stacking a bunch of things and blowing them up, we knew we had to improve on those high points and tighten the gameplay experience. Finally, there were some stability issues that we dealt with to make everything that much smoother."
As for the DLC itself, Bridge said that Capcom "built this concept of “The Untold Stories of Los Perdidos" and have put together four episodes, each one of which revolves around a different new main character that you play and how their story intertwines with the “Dead Rising 3” story.
"It’s kind of cool," he said, "You get new weapons, a custom vehicle, a new story flow, new missions. It’s fun in that we got to let you take a different approach. In “Operation Broken Eagle” you’re going in with a big military point of view and deadly weapons, including this awesome chaingun that just rips apart the zombies. We really tried to focus on telling a single-player story with this experience and all of the cool things you get with the episode, including the weapons and items and vehicles, can be used in the “Dead Rising 3” main storyline and in co-op as well."
Operation Broken Eagle will arrive tomorrow for £7.99 or for free if you already have the season pass.
