13GB patch for Dead Rising 3 addresses issues, prepares game for DLC

dr3Dead Rising 3 for the Xbox One received a patch yesterday to address some of the issues gamers have had with the game as well as prepare the game for the release of the DLC Operation Broken Eagle, which is set for release today. Operation Broken Eagle is the first of four chapters to be released as DLC for Capcom’s open world zombie game under the title Untold Stories of Los Perdidos. It may take some time to download that patch, depending on your internet speed, as it comes to a whopping 13GB of space, the size of a full game in its digital version. Dead Rising 3’s Executive Producer Josh Bridge explained that they have been “monitoring fan feedback” and have responded with a large checklist of fixes.

Bridge said that even though the game was already in players’ hands, Capcom Vancouver wanted “to make sure it’s a fun experience and nothing’s getting in their [the players] 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.” In addition to the fixes, the patch also includes content for upcoming DLC episodes 3 and 4. It should be noted that the patch is necessary to play the DLC content and to play online, something that may upset some gamers facing data caps and choosing not to purchase the extra content. Bridge added: “With all of the fixes and everything, it’s a large update of about 13 gigs, but we really recommend getting it to ensure compatibility with the online players and all of the upcoming add-on content that’s coming out shortly as well.” Below is a list of what’s included in the patch, as listed by IGN.
