Dead Rising 3’s SmartGlass features unlock exclusive missions

Capcom’s upcoming Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 will give gamers a reason to boot up the Xbox extension SmartGlass.  The game re-skins players’ SmartGlass devices to look like the character’s phone within the game universe.  From there, players will receive calls which will grant them exclusive missions otherwise inaccessible.  Capcom has stated that the missions players gain access to via SmartGlass will expand the game’s story but will not be essential to it for gamers who don’t have access to a SmartGlass capable device.

SmartGlass will also grant players access to bonuses like air strikes.  Completing missions in-game grants players codes which can be used in the SmartGlass application to purchase the special attacks and such in-game.  Josh Bridge, Dead Rising 3’s executive producer, confirmed that the game does not have microtransactions and that all these purchases will be “within the game’s own ecosystem.”

Dead Rising 3 is coming exclusively to Xbox One as a launch title this November.
