Dead Rising 2: Off the Record to Include Sandbox Mode

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record to Include Sandbox Mode

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record takes the setting of DR2 and replaces the protagonist with the hero of the original game, Frank West.  Although similar in gameplay, Frank will handle differently than Chuck Greene, and today, in honor of PAX, Capcom has revealed the spinoff title will also include a sandbox mode.

The mode will basically allow players to explore the gameworld without the restriction of time:

“Players can explore the casinos, restaurants, malls and new Uranus Zone that comprise Fortune City without the obstacle of time. Challenges placed throughout the city offer players the chance to earn additional cash for use in the pawn shops and vending machines around Fortune City. Ranging from collection style challenges to vehicle-based challenges to zombie massacre challenges; the higher the rank of the player, the more cash they win.”

Dead Rising 2: Off The Record is set to release for 360, PS3, and PC on October 11, 2011.
