Dead Rising 2 for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 isn’t all about taking the main character, Chuck Greene, on a zombie killing spree using a mish-mash of various items. While there is a lot of that, there is also a story that moves the zombie killing spree along and Capcom has released a new batch of screenshots showing the story element.
In Dead Rising 2, Chuck Greene’s daughter, Katey, is infected with the zombie virus but the only thing keeping her from turning into an adorable headphone wearing zombie is a special drug called Zombrex which was introduced at the end of the first game and will feature promintenly in the second. Katey is Chuck’s primary motivation in the game as he’s trying to earn money to keep her on the zombie suppresant. This results in him taking part in the reality show, “Terror Is Reality.”
Dead Rising 2 is currently scheduled for a September 18, 2010 release with a special prologue called Dead Rising: Case Zero coming August 31 for the Xbox 360.
