If you were wondering what the 13GB update was to Dead Rising 3 that I tweeted about the other day, then wonder no more. The update simply prepared you for the upcoming add-0n content, Operation Broken Eagle. It’s the first episode in the game’s “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos” add-on content series. Those of you with the season pass can download it for free.
Executive Producer Josh Bridges sat down with Microsoft to talk about the latest update and the add-on content.
Xbox Wire: The latest title update for “Dead Rising 3″ is coming. What are some of the changes fans can expect and how did you decide on what to include in this update?
Josh Bridge: We’ve been actively engaging and monitoring fan reaction and feedback on the game and it’s really important that even though we’ve shipped the game and got it out to gamers, we want to make sure it’s a fun experience and nothing’s getting in their way. After release and through the holidays, we’ve been putting together a large update list. It’s in reaction to everything we could find and we’ve actually been directly reaching out to fans who’ve encountered issues. I think that’s really neat, because it’s an indication of how game development has changed. We have a direct connection through social channels now. There’s an ease of access for us to listen to our fans and reach out to them. It’s not just about making a game and getting it out to them, it’s about making sure they’re still having a lot of fun even after it’s out.
He goes on to speak more about the 13GB update and the reason there’s no co-op in the new content. You should definitely ready up on it.
