Frank West continues to hack his way through zombies in Dead Rising 4, and soon he will be able to continue the slayfest with some new wardrobe additions.

Capcom has announced that it will be releasing a free Street Fighter costume pack with five new outfits for Frank, including Zangrief, Cammie and Guile. We had previously seen him as Akouma in a video before the game was reelased in December.  The pack will come out on January 30. 

Another update releasing the same day will add two new difficulty modes to the game. Enemies will do more damage and Frank’s weapons will break faster, while food will restore less health. If the game wasn't hard enough for you before, strap in because everything will get a lot more nerve-racking.

If you haven't purchased Dead Rising 4 yet, Capcom also will be offering a limited 60-minute demo of the game to give Xbox One players a chance to see what the are missing. Players will have single-player story mode and multiplayer available, and any achievements earned will carry over if the full game is later purchased. The trial will start January 31.

Dead Rising 4 players have been rather prolific killers, as more than 7 billion zombies have been killes, and more than 3 million photos and selfies have been taken. Note that is only on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs, via an exclusivity deal that Capcom has with Microsoft. PS4 players may eventually get the game after a year.

      I absolutely love dead rising but with all the negativity around this game, highlighting all the features missing from DR4 that were in previous games, they're gonna have to cut that $60 price in half before I'm even interested.

      Hmmmmmm I'll probably try out the demo but I will still wait until the game is extremely cheap before I consider buying it.
