Dead Rising has been one of the most iconic video games of the last decade, thanks to its huge infestations of zombies that would stop at nothing to rip your character to pieces – and its intensely satisfying weaponry to absolutely annihilate them.

To celebrate the original game’s ten year anniversary and the fourth instalment of the franchise, Dead Rising 4 is reuniting the player with the hilarious original protagonist of the games Frank West, who is returning to the city of Willamette, Colorado over the festive period only to find another zombie outbreak. Yes, he’ll be spending time in the original iconic shopping mall, but this sequel only spends a small amount of time there before whisking you away to explore the town of Willamette proper in an open world map.
However, you probably won’t be admiring the scenery too much, as every single square inch of the town is filled with zombies trying to rip your guts out. Thankfully, there’s a whole new variety of weapons, vehicles, suits and ways to kill the assholes in the most satisfying ways possible, including an ice sword, and electrified axe and a fire breathing triceratops head – yeah, really – so you’ll be spending most of your time doing that. That’s what you bought the game for, after all.
You can watch the teaser trailer for the game below, which features a zombiefied spin on that classic advert where the guy stands on the phone book to kiss the girl underneath the mistletoe:
