Microsoft and Capcom announced on Aug. 16 that Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero are now available for free to Xbox LIVE Gold members as part of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program for Xbox 360.
Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will be available for free to Xbox LIVE Gold members until Aug. 31, at which time Microsoft will announce two new Games with Gold titles for the month of Sept. – hopefully Halo 3 is one of them.
Those who download free games as part of the Games with Gold program will have full access to the titles even if your Gold membership expires – so, if you want Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, or just some free Xbox 360 games, a Gold Membership is certainly worthwhile.
Dead Rising 2 was released in Sept. 2010. Developed by Blue Castle Games, Dead Rising 2 features a new main character, Chuck Greene, who must fight for survival in the zombie ridden Fortune City while protecting his ill daughter, Katey.
With a greater emphasis on combat and weapon customization, Dead Rising 2 is more action-packed than the original Dead Rising.
Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero will be available for free downloads on Xbox 360 until Aug. 31.
