Capcom have just announced that their next instalment in the Dead Rising 2 saga, Dead Rising 2: Case West, will ship out on December 27th for 800 Microsoft Points.

Following on from the scenes portrayed in Dead Rising 2, Case West reintroduces fan-favourite, Frank West who teams up with Chuck Norris Greene as the two infiltrate the Phenotrans Facility to get to the bottom of the company's shady practices.

Boasting new content, new combo weapons, new enemies and the return of the camera-tastic Dead Rising 1 action, Dead Rising 2: Case West is available on December 27th for 800 Microsoft Points.

Yeah too bad it's 800 MS points, probably too expensive if it's as short as Case Zero. Not gonna pay 800 MS for 1,5 hours playtime. I will wait a couple weeks when it gets Deal Of The Week for 400 MS, then it's an ok deal. 800 is pushing it, but I guess they saw the money when alot of people bought Case Zero for 400 MS points, thinking as many people will buy it for 800 as well. Nope, I will wait for it to be Deal Of The Week :)

Case Zero was enjoyable, but I'll wait until Deal of the Week like the previous poster. Plus I'll save my points for any Christmas specials that might be worth getting (I'm hoping for the Tomb Raider Arcade game or Monday Night Combat)

I was hoping that this would be 400MSP like Case Zero (which is actually the only reason I got it) so I will wait for this to hit DoTW before picking it up.

I was hoping that it would be 400 MSP like Case Zero, but it looks like Case West will be twice the length, so it's expected to be twice the price. Still, I'm looking forward to this!

guys this is a "episode" not a prologue like Case Zero. 800 is the normal price for this content. The wiki mentions nothing about save file's used from DR2. Its standalone.

@ 27 - It was clear in the description "...will ship out on December 27th for 800 Microsoft Points." that this is DLC exactly like Case Zero except it has included co-op which is most likely the cause for the extra 400 MSP. Good to see Frank and the camera skills back...well not so much the camera skills but I'm sure they'll integrate it nicely. More zombie smooshing = Win.

@ 30 - I'd acknowledge that if it made sense.

But I get what you're saying and I still stand by it. Let's see who Chucks last big fight was against?
Joe Piscopo in Sidekicks. Yeah, I'd say Chuck Norris is at the bottom rung of the "cool" meter. Dolph Lungdren gets more screentime, props and badassery than Chuck and the last thing "I" saw Dolph in was Masters of the Universe. Still have to see Expendables. Where's Chuck there with all the bset action heroes of "EVER"?

OT - Like that this DLC will take place at a new location rather than rehash old locales and charge us for it. Can't wait to see some of the new weapon creations and if they'll allow "tag-team" moves.

What does it hurt to make this available as stand alone content? I played DR2 but sold it for Black Ops. So now, I should have to re-purchase the game to play the content?

It benefits everyone if this is stand alone content.

I can't wait for the content.(if it isn't dlc) This looks like its gonna be awesome.

@ 41 - I figured it would be. It's not going to win an Oscar but it's a culmination of the best action stars in the last 20 years! Got to be decent at least. I'm waiting for Scorsese to put together a similar flick with all the old school best gangsters - Deniro, Pacino, Walken, Sorvino, Liotta, Pesci, Palminteri and I'd even take Stallone for his comical Oscar haha. I'll pick it up this week.

I just can't get myself into this. I played Dead Rising for a while, but didn't find it fun... Gave it a few tries. Then I downloaded Case Zero, thinking it had been a few years, maybe I was just "doing it wrong." I got a little bit of entertainment out of that, but not 400 MSP worth, IMO. Why can't I like this series?

Well, I would have bought Case Zero for 800 points for the 4-6 hours I got out of it. If this is about the same length with new combo weapons plus freakin' FRANK the tank WEST it's a steal even at 800. I mean you guys buy 60$ games that last under 10 hours. Then what is so wrong with 2-4 hours (or even more as it seems in this case) for ten bucks.

I like to pay good developers for their great work and the guys are Capcom are awesome. Frank is all we fans wanted all along, so don't be an ass an dbuy the darn thing when it comes out ;P

What's with the price hike? I'll wait til it's on sale. I did enjoy Case Zero it's 5 dollar price tag was fair. I don't see Case West being much different to jusitfy a 10 dollar purchase.

awesome! I kinda wanna get Dr1 again now, but the tin edition. And I guess 800 points is fair. accounting for more weapons. I think a 50lvl cap, co-op and new gameplay elements it only seems fair. weird thing is Frank hasnt got his camera in the screenshot and i do like how he has Carlitos necklace on. Ill get it as soon as I have enough money for points.

Case Zero was 400 points mostly b/c it was 1 player at the time and it was one small area of an area outside of Vegas. Case West takes place inside Phenotrans and possibly outside it. It will be a much bigger area and bigger story. Another factor is that they're they're adding the co-op to it. Just sayin' these could be factors. And if we've learned anything from the Dead Rising games, It will call for multiple playthroughs as well so I'd say it's worth it. If it's not - Don't buy it and stop complaining. Gets old.
