Dead Rising 3’s First DLC Has You Playing As A Brand New Character

By Ishaan . December 13, 2013 . 9:00am

Dead Rising 3 is getting its first DLC soon, Microsoft have announced. The game’s upcoming “Operation Broken Eagle” DLC will task you with tracking down the President of the U.S., who is missing.


You’ll be playing as a new character—Spec Ops commander Adam Kane, and the mission will come with five new weapons, a new combo weapon, a new vehicle, and a new outfit. Kane is different from Nick in that he’s a soldier and has access to military weapons and an armoured vehicle.


The Operation Broken Eagle DLC will be available next week, and will cost $9.99, but you can also opt to pick up a season pass for $30, that will cover the first four pieces of DLC for the game.


Additionally, a demo for Dead Rising 3 will be made available today as well. It will allow you to play for 20 minutes in the game’s Ingleton locale, but you’ll be limited to two tries per gamertag.

    It seems to be that at least Xbox One is delivering the ultimate experience of DLC at launch -_-‘ Launch DLC on DR3 and Killer Instinct which is basically DLC: The game…

    (Launch DLC from the fact that it will be just that for majority of the world when the console reaches world wide support)

    • Kaihedgie

      Oh get over it :T

      This game was released a while back, so this isn’t even “launch DLC”.

      And besides, no one is forcing you to buy anything

      • Shady Shariest

        Hmh? Get over what?

        • Kaihedgie

          Complaining about DLC

          • Shady Shariest

            I was not complaining…
            But i have dug a deep enough hole for myself to not even try to explain further ;_;

        Dead Rising was released not even a month ago, and I’d imagine it take some time to plan/create a new character..

        Its a launch DLC, just Microsoft released it bit later because every gamers hate day one paid DLC. Released it few week later so its not obvious to everyone, while getting a $10 profit per buyer.

        Also, $10? That is very expensive, its 1/6 price of the full game for a very minor addition. I know nobody is forcing me, but it still show how greedy they are for offering such a bad trade for their own fans.

        • Kaihedgie

          How is it “launch DLC” if it wasn’t released on…y’know, the game’s launch date.

          I’ve seen more expensive characters and campaigns than this..

          And this I must ask as I’ve asked other people:
          What kind of paying job are you working where $5-$10 is too expensive?

    • BobTheCat

      Personally I’m excited for more from Dead Rising 3.

      Also I don’t think Killer Instinct is the negative example of DLC you think it is. For like £15/$20 you get the season 1 roster of characters, which is all you need really. If you want everything like costumes and accessories then you can get everything for the price of a regular game. If anything its ‘a la carte’ approach to gaming actually benefits gamers by allowing them to save money and only get the things they want.

      • Shady Shariest

        Everyone is taking a negative impact from what i said ;_;
        (Typed, pick one)

        I support DLC, when done right… And this is what i might consider right. I was just commenting on the fact that the launch has been quite DLC-heavy…
        *Goes behind the corner to shiver*

        • Lucky Dan

          What your explaining is that you want an expansion pack in the days where companies produce extra content.

          DLC should be just cosmetic stuff and should have no impact in the story nor should be when the game is released.

          • Shady Shariest

            Eh… No. Not really…I sincerely have no idea where you picked up the expansion part…

            Story DLC is good, imo. If there is an understandable reason. Like running out of time and resources during development, or trying out ideas, like Gearbox is doing with Borderlands 2 :3

          • Lucky Dan

            Geez that’s the reason I hate this whole DLC crap,, oh we run out of time for development is a valid excuse to charge more for the game.

          • Shady Shariest

            -_-‘ They aren’t charging more for the game…
            They are charging for something extra

      • YouGusta

        But I want a physical copy.. :(

    • Lucky Dan

      You can’t texas sharp shooter any of the stuff man.

      Capcom is known for DLC as well as Microsoft but so is Sony and a bunch of other companies. This is all due to Activision locking content on the Disc which everyone ingored saying its just an Activision thing and now look what happened !!! Everyone is locking parts of the game on the disc and unlocking it when they want to.

      • Shady Shariest

        This content isn’t on disc, though… The term used here reflects to “Downloadable Content”

        • Lucky Dan

          I know but Capcom has been doing DISC LOCKED CONTENT for a good period.

          The just gave the meaning ambiguity

  • D-Rev

    Well that’s neat.

  • Aoshi00

    Dead rising 3 was really fun, lenient time limit and combining weapons on the spot.. I beat the game but couldn’t finish the last extra chapter 8..

    Cool we get the miliary guy dlc, in one chapter nick infiltrated the barrack and saw the president.. I want to play these four extra chars, might wait a bit for the season pass to go on sale later.. Just bought the AC4BF season pass to play as adawale next week… Need to figure out how to use the smartglass thing too..

  • Nitraion

    For now most people choose Xbox one because of this game….
    your move sony…. although your brother PS3 seems on getting best game lately on his last years…

    • FlyingPony

      When its the little bro’s time to shine, the same thing will happen with its two older brother, the PS3 and PS2– flowing with the best game in every second

    So with him, the Dead Rising will be basically CoD with zombies, now?
