Dead Will Rise in Europe Sooner Than Expected

August 12, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Dead Rising 2’s release date, has been bounced around quite a bit, especially in Europe. First, the zombie thriller was penned for a September 3rd release. Then, the title was delayed, subsequently leading to an October 1st release date. Now, Capcom has announced that European territories will be receiving the zombie-infested game a bit earlier than originally (well, not so originally) expected.

Capcom has announced that Dead Rising 2 will now be releasing in Europe on September 24th, one week ahead of its delayed date of October 1st. Unfortunately for those of you outside of Europe, the September 28th and 30th release dates for North America and Japan (respectively) still stand.

Dead Rising 2 will be set in a Las Vegas-themed gambling town named Fortune City and features protagonist, Chuck Reid, taking on hordes of zombies with a slew of intriguing weapons. The game will also feature a four-person multiplayer mode, while retaining its tongue-in-cheek zombie slaughtering humor.
