Tougher new difficulty modes are coming to Dead Rising 4 [official site] next week, Capcom have announced. Low difficulty undercutting purpose and tension was one of Adam's big complaints in his review of the open-world zombiekiller -- but not his only complaint -- so this sounds a promising addition.

Dead Rising 3 Goes Apocalyptic With DLC

Vvvwwwaaaarrrrmmm. That's the Hans Zimmer style combo zombie warning/incoming news alarm! It also doubles as a word to describe how hot it currently is on the British Isles. It's here to remind us that not only is Dead Rising 3 making the jump to PC, but has now been renamed to the hopefully exaggerating APOCALYPSE EDITION (emphasis writer's own). And what do subtitles mean, kids? Additional content, that's…
