Dead Rising 2 is an action/survival horror video game. It has been developed in partnership with Dead Rising developer Capcom by Blue Castle Games, and will be distributed by Capcom. The original Dead Rising team members have returned to create the game, including Keiji Inafune, head of Research & Development at Capcom. Originally set to be released in the beginning of 2010, the game's release was pushed back to September 28, 2010 in North America. The European and Australian releases are scheduled for September 24, 2010 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and 28 September for PC

The player controls protagonist Chuck Greene as he fights off hordes of zombies while accomplishing specific missions. The game will include several new objects that can be used to attack the zombies. Over 7,000 zombies can be seen onscreen at any one time.

Dead Rising 2 allows players to manufacture their own custom weapons at various points in the game. The player will also be able to purchase cards that will reveal item combinations that could prove deadly after being built. Such combinations include the "Hail Mary," a hand grenade duct taped to a football, "Dynameat," a stick of dynamite duct taped to a piece of meat, the "Paddlesaw," two chainsaws duct taped to a kayak paddle, and "Freedom bear," which is a giant stuffed bear with a Rambo-style headband and a machine gun that acts as a sentry.

It has also been confirmed that "Infinity Mode" from Dead Rising has been removed from Dead Rising 2.

During the 2009 Tokyo Game Show, Capcom revealed that the multiplayer of Dead Rising 2 takes the form of a reality TV show called "Terror Is Reality" in which players will act as contestants in a fictional gameshow. Up to four players can participate in multiplayer, competing against each other for the most kills inside an arena full of undead. Players will be able to use weapons and vehicles including human-sized hamster balls and chainsaw-equipped motorcycles. They also will be able to prevent other players from scoring by using various forms of "dirty" tactics.

It was confirmed during Captivate '10 that cooperative gameplay for the story campaign will be available and according to Blue Castle Games there will be an online co-op mode. Both players will play as the main character, Chuck Greene, and will be able to earn experience and keep the items they collected throughout the game—but only the host player will be able to save the game's progress. A host can invite a friend to join the current game by sending out an invitation; if the friend accepts, a confirmation icon will be displayed and the host can allow the player to join in. Non-host players can drop in/out of a co-op game anytime they like. When the players become separated, a tiny animated Chuck Greene icon will appear at the bottom of the game screen. The icon will show what the other player is up to—attacking, being assaulted by zombies, etc. If a player is taken down by zombies, he will be able to call the other for help to revive them. The player will use food to revive the dying partner before his health runs out.

The game is set five years after the events of the original Dead Rising. The game takes place in the fictional Fortune City, actually a town design to replicate the casino strip of Las Vegas. The game's protagonist, Chuck Greene, is a former national motocross champion. Chuck will face a number of zombie hordes as well as surviving psychopaths and civilians whom he may choose to save. Among the survivors in Fortune City is Chuck's own daughter, Katey Greene, who was infected in an attack by her zombified mother. Katey serves as Chuck's primary motivation for battling the undead. He tries to earn money to keep his daughter on the infection suppressant "Zombrex".

The game begins as Chuck participates in the violent game show known as "Terror Is Reality", which celebrates the slaughtering of countless undead. The situation begins to deteriorate as the horde of zombies manage to break loose into the city, causing a wide-scale infection. Besides the need to find Zombrex for Katey, Chuck learns from a news report that he is accused of causing the outbreak in Fortune City and that the military will come to capture him in 72 hours. The player has that time to complete the game's story. Chuck decides to meet Rebecca Chang, the news reporter, in the Fortune City hotel to confront her about her source.

The sequel was announced on February 9, 2009, confirming earlier rumors of the game's existence, as well as a viral video for the game. The developers Blue Castle Games will be working with Keiji Inafune, the game's producer and Capcom's global head of research and development, along with other Dead Rising team members.

Capcom created a variety of websites before the release of the game. These include TapeitorDie.Com,, and

In August 2010, Keiji Inafune released an eight part video series entitled Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun.

Capcom is set to sponsor a gathering of zombies at the London House of Parliament on August 30 - and the best dressed will win a games console. Attendees will also receive a limited edition, one-of-a-kind t-shirt. The inaugural General Election campaign will be attended by Citizens for Undead Rights and Equality (CURE), an equal rights group campaigning for the rights of zombies.
