Dead Rising 3 Gets A Giant 13GB Update This Week


Dead Rising 3 is getting a giant 13GB update this week, Microsoft have revealed. The update will introduce “Operation Broken Eagle,” the first of four DLC episodes for the game, alongside a number of tweaks and improvements based on feedback from players.


One particularly neat adjustment has specifically to do with the Xbox One controller, which has little rumble motors placed in its triggers. Now, when your gun is about to run out of ammo, the right trigger on the controller—which you use to shoot—will begin buzzing to make you aware that you’re low on ammunition.


The same thing will happen with weapons on vehicles as well. The haptic feedback is meant to serve as a more instinctive replacement for having to look at your HUD.


Meanwhile, the Operation Broken Eagle episode is a story that takes place before the events of Dead Rising 3, and has you playing as a military commander. Since all four DLC episodes are meant to focus on a single-player story, they won’t feature co-op.


The full list of tweaks for the Dead Rising 3 title update can be viewed here.
