Dead Rising 4 Banner

There’s a chance that when you were young you had a friend, maybe even a best friend that moved away or drifted away from. They were gone for years, unseen and unheard. Then one day they showed up at the door with some plastic surgery, a new accent, and pestered you to go on a night out that you were extremely hesitant of due to how much they oversell it. That’s Dead Rising 4 in a nutshell. Normally this story goes either one or two ways, you reconnect and have brilliant night or your piss away several hours you’ll never get back as your friend digs up old memories and tries to re-enact them that night.

It’s always important to make a good impression, to put forward your best foot and welcome whatever or whoever lies ahead. You’ll puff your chest out and even crack a smile, maybe.
