Dead Rising 4 will feature an online four-player mode but its story mode will be single-player only

Dead Rising 4 releases next month and a couple of days ago, it was revealed that the game will feature an online four-player mode. Naturally, and after such a reveal, a lot of gamers wondered whether its story mode would be playable in co-op. Unfortunately, it appears that the story mode will be single-player only.

According to Capcom Vancouver’s brand manager, Dead Rising 4 will not support co-op in its story mode:

“We have an online four-player mode. So in the story mode; it’s a single player mode, you’re gonna play just as Frank. We wanted to make sure we really focus on telling Frank’s story. We really think he’s a really interesting character and it’s really exciting to bring him back.”

Regarding the game’s multiplayer mode, Capcom Vancouver’s brand manager had this to say:

“The four-player is our multiplayer mode. It’s a little bit inspired by the original Infinity mode for old-school fans. It’s four-player co-op and it takes place in the Mall. You play as four survivors who are also featured in the story as well. You get a little backstory on them. You go in the Mall and take part in crazy missions trying to survive.

The structure is; before you start the game together you start in a safehouse, you get to loadup, buy some weapons, get yourself ready to go. Then we unlock the doors. It’s killing, mayhem, madness. Lots of interesting missions that take advantage of our systems and really show off the cool stuff you can do in our game. And then you have to get to the safehouse to survive at the end of the day.”

Dead Rising 4 releases on December 6th!
