Dead Rising 2: Off The Record Confirmed: First-Look Preview

We got an early look at Dead Rising 2: Off the Record at Capcom's Captivate event last week. You may be asking "What the hell is Dead Rising 2: Off the Record?" Here's some of Adam Rosenberg's preview, by way of explanation:

[Dead Rising 2's] Fortune City offered a larger and more varied space to run around in while the addition of combo weapons and drop-in/drop-out co-op play offered gamers the opportunity to interact with the world in new ways. The only downer for some fans of the first game was the absence of the original protagonist, photojournalist Frank West.

Enter Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, a sort of "what if" scenario in which the Fortune City outbreak is allowed to play out once again, this time with Frank at the center of what's happening. Originally planned as a director's cut release, the team at Blue Castle, under the direction of executive producer Jason Lee, decided instead to deliver a reimagining which basically functions as what they call a "fan's version of the game."

Check out the rest of our Dead Rising 2: Off the Record preview. Also, feast your brain on the Dead Rising 2: Off the Record screenshots gallery.
