Street Fighter outfits and new difficulty modes are coming to Dead Rising 4

Dead Rising 4 fans are in for a bit of extra challenge and some Street Fighter fun in the game's next update. Launching on January 30, the update is set to bring not only new difficulty modes to the game, but also a set of Street Fighter outfits for everyone.

In all, there will be two new difficulty modes that should ratchet up the challenge for any seasoned Dead Rising veterans. Not only will zombies do more damage, but weapons will break faster and food will restore less health than in other difficulties. If things get too difficult, you'll also be able to toughen your (imaginary) resolve with new Street Fighter outfits that make Frank look like Guile, Zangief, and other characters from the long-running fighting franchise.

Lastly, a new 60-minute timed trial experience for the game will be available on Xbox One starting on January 31. This will let new players try out the single player and multiplayer before deciding whether they want to go all-in and buy the game. January 31 also happens to be the day Dead Rising 4 will go on sale digitally in Germany.
