so yeah, I finally hit the deal breaker with this game. For some perspective, dead rising 2 launched with single player, fully playable in co op, and a multiplayer mode that was pretty well done. Dead Rising 3 also had the campaign be fully playable in co op, and later added the 4 player super ultra dead rising 3 arcade remix through dlc. Now we are getting no co op whatsover, and some 4 player multiplayer challenge mode instead(somewhat similar to Super Ultra with less fun included at no extra charge)....

Here is the source:

18:10 into the video

Why on earth would they take out co op. I cant even imagine playing these games alone anymore

Are you fucking kidding me? I thought this garbage was 4 player coop when it was announced, not some mini game shit. First the fucking timer game mode dlc and now this? Not sure if I can.

Wow really? Canceling my preorder then. Only reason me and a friend were buying it was to play coop.

Fuck this game. They seemingly can't say anything about it without making it sound unappealing.

After the added 4 player Co-op. I thought it was obvious that story co-op would be in!

Wow I guess I was wrong lolol.

It's kind of interesting to watch what they are trying to do with this game. Why bring back Frank if he looks and sounds nothing like the original and the game plays nothing like the first either. Pretty sure fans of the original liked the gameplay and structure of the first and you won't find this here. Why bring Frank back then?

The coop in 3 what was made the game fun to me. Otherwise it felt like another wacky semi-open world game with ridiculous weapons. I'm a big fan of 1 (and 2) and felt 3 was a huge step down. Can't imagine liking this one much now.

With the way this is going we can only hope it won't be the final Dead Rising game.

I still feel like Dead Rising is on the chopping block at capcom. I feel like it might be a case of budget not reflecting sales. Which would explain the radical shifts.

Getting to the point with me that when a game has a release date announced, I'm thinking, 'cool, can't wait to buy it a year from then, when all the features and fixes are in the complete edition'.

Wow......whelp my interest in this game just fell to the floor.

The hell are they thinking? Co op was the most fun aspect imo.

Wow! What the hell is this game? Loved 1-3 very much but everything about 4 is a big turn off. Still can't get over how weird Frank looks.

Preorder will be cancelled if true. The 4 player co-op was what had me interested. After DR3, I can't imagine playing a game in the series alone anymore. Just fucking stupid.

Ok, between this and the psychopaths, now we're having an issue. Not good moves Vancouver.

I coulda swore I saw a thread earlier today about IGN First revealing 4 player coop...
its that mode I mentioned in the OP. It has nothing to do with story mode. Its kinda like a challenge mode/horde thing. With different characters you can level up. Not my cup of tea

I have dead rising 3 on PC and I'm planning on playing it co-op with my coworker. Sucks if they took it out of 4
