Dead Rising 4 update adds Street Fighter costumes and new difficulty mode

Free content arrives Jan. 31

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Dead Rising 4's next update will deliver a set of Street Fighter-themed costumes for Frank West to wear, as well as two new difficulty modes.

Available for free on Jan. 30, the update adds five Street Fighter outfits. Capcom-Unity didn't specify which characters were represented, but did show a screenshot (above) featuring Frank West as Zangief, Guile and, uh, Cammy. Yes, with Frank’s ass turned to the camera.

The new difficulty modes will mean enemies do greater damage, Frank's weapons break down faster and food doesn't restore as much health. A patch fixing a bunch of bugs will also accompany this title update.

Additionally, Capcom will begin offering a timed trial to Xbox One players on Jan. 31. The trial lasts an hour, and users may earn achievements and carry over their saved progress tot he full game if they choose to buy it. The free trial includes both the game's single-player campaign and multiplayer.
