Dead Rising 3’s co-op mode will allow players to leapfrog the storyline, Capcom Vancouver has announced – drop into another player’s game, and you’ll be able to play through chapters you haven’t reached in your own. Complete the chapter, and it’ll be marked complete in your next single player session. Take that, theories of causality!
And say a big hello to Dick, your co-op partner – a big truck driver who just happened to stop in “the wrong diner on the wrong day”. He’ll be present in single player too, but may not actually appear alongside you as you explore, and seems very much the comic relief to main character Nick The Mechanic’s smouldering bundle of heroism.
