Microsoft is making zombie-killing fun again.

Dead Rising 4 is coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 this holiday. During its media breifing before the Electronic Entertainment Expo tradeshow in Los Angeles, Microsoft and Capcom confirmed what many leaks had previously suggested — the sequel to the Xbox One launch game Dead Rising 3 from 2013 is heading back for more exclusivity love from Microsoft. While Dead Rising started as a multiplatform release in its first two iterartions, the Xbox company worked with Capcom to tie it up for the Xbox One and PC, and that paid off as the game was one of the best-sellers during 2013’s launch window.

To hype up Dead Rising 4 at E3, Microsoft debuted a trailer that showed the hero of the first game, Frank West, wrecking countless zombies. As is a typical for the series, he uses insane items in creative ways to take out the hordes.
