Dead Rising 2 DLC Theme Packs announced
So you’ve played through Dead Rising 2, dressed Chuck in every outfit possible and utilised just about every object around you as a weapon. Now you’re probably left wondering what else you can do, well Capcom has the solution for you with its DLC Theme Packs.
The new theme packs will provide a whole new host of skills, weapons and everyone’s personal favourite, outfits. Whether you dress up Chuck as a Psychopath or sneaky ninja is completely up to you.
More detail on the theme packs can be found below, including the release date.
Psychopath Theme Pack: Available from October 12
Psycho Chuck will be a zombie’s worst nightmare as his new “insane” look will make him more difficult to kill and give him a host of gruesome weapons including chainsaws, cleavers, axes and more. Zombies won’t stand a chance!
Soldier of Fortune Theme Pack: Available from October 19
With the soldier costume, you can “Rambo out” with double ammo, increased shooting accuracy, more firepower and headshot accuracy increased. Chuck will also have a new special attack when using automatic weapons, spraying zombies with a hail of bullets.
Sports Theme Pack: Available from October 26
For all you sports fans out there, this pack’s for you. Chuck’s damage will increase with sports-themed weapons. The new sports weapons (golf balls, basketballs, etc.) bounce more before stopping, allowing you to hit more zombies. Chuck also has a new charge/tackle attack for taking zombies down in the ultimate blitz! With the Sports Theme Pack, Chuck will also earn more from gambling, gain more health while eating and drinking (especially alcoholic drinks) and not get sick from drinking too much…
Ninja Theme Pack: Available from November 2
Ninja Chuck will have a new “stealth mode” where the zombies have to be much closer to him to detect his presence. This gives Chuck the upper hand as he is harder to grab and be taken down by hoards of the undead. Chuck’s damage is increased with sword-type weapons (broadswords, katanas, etc.) that have new special attacks. Stackable items and throwing items (nails, plates, gems, etc.) will also do more damage and Chuck’s throwing speed is increased.
It looks like it’s time to play fancy dress.
