Dead Rising 3 interactive trailer tasks you with keeping Nick Ramos alive

An interactive trailer for Dead Rising 3 uses dozens of YouTube videos to create a choose-your-own-adventure in which viewers must bring protagonist Nick Ramos safely to the "after party."

At least, that's how it works in theory. In practice, it doesn't appear that there's actually any way to lead Ramos to his death; roughly half an hour of clicking through videos failed to lead to a "game over." The videos instead simply serve to show off the many ways that the player and Ramos can slaughter zombies in Dead Rising 3, from throwing axes to a fire-breathing bull costume and a motorcycle equipped with machine guns.

Dead Rising 3 hits Xbox One on Nov. 22.
