Capcom, the developers of the Dead Rising series, has said that the newest instalment will adjust a lot of the more restrictive gameplay, giving the players more freedom.

This pushes the game towards a more open-world feeling, which is a big change for the traditionally linear series...

Capcom executive producer Josh Bridge explained the game's new approach in an interview with the L.A Times:

“It’s the sheer freedom that you have within to play how you want, experience it how you want. The past instalments were relatively regimented and you were kind of forced along at a particular rate of time. Now we’ve unlocked that to really let you explore this world. We went deeper with more stuff to interact with, more areas to explore, it just feels like a much richer world as a result.”                    

If you remember the Dead Rising 3 E3 trailer, it showed off how the game will use the Second Screen to enhance the game, such as using Microsoft's SmartGlass to call in an airstrike. Ideas like this aren't unique - every other next-gen game seems to have their own ideas for using mobile devices. Bridge continued explaining about the importance and features of the companion app:

“We have a feature in the game that essentially interweaves through the story and tells its own story with its own character. It’s as though the game kind of comes out of the screen and you’re literally holding it in your hand."

“You’ll get calls from this character, text messages and just additional game play from this device, which is kind of cool. We geeked out on it because it was cool just to have our phones be part of the game. It’s something we were surprised by, how many folks were really excited by that."

“It’s new for us as developers to have this opportunity that we haven’t had before, and now going onto Xbox One we had this. We tried to really run with it and tried to give it its own character, essentially.”         

Using Second Screens is not only new territory for game designers, but for gamers as well; we'll see later this year if it's something the gamers want, or if the developers use it too heavily.
