Dead Rising 3: 7 Facts in 7 Days: Day 3
#3. Dead Rising 3 will have 6-10 different endings.
When it comes to the Dead Rising franchise, multiple endings are a staple of the series. Dead Rising 1 had six, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero had six and Dead Rising 2 had seven. So it’s only natural to bring multiple endings back with Dead Rising 3. The great thing about the multiple endings in the Dead Rising series is the secrecy of them. What a lot of games get wrong with their multiple endings, is the sense of discovery in the ending. In most games you are either making a good decision or a bad decision and that’s it. Dead Rising makes it feel almost like an Easter egg in the game. This is so much the case that a lot of Dead Rising fans don’t even realize that there are multiple endings in the game. It takes some experimenting or some googling to find out how to unlock each one. Didn’t like the ending you got? Well go find another one and the outcome can be its polar opposite.
Mike Jones told OXM UK that the game will not just have six days but it will go beyond that.
“Previous Dead Risings would always have modes like the Overtime mode, where you get to discover the truth behind everything that’s been going on,” Jones said. “So there’s not just the six days, we’re going beyond that if you make the right story decisions. So it’s not like choose-your-own-adventure crazy infinite endings, there’s a finite amount, but they all are meaningful story decisions that you make as you play through.”
