Dead Rising 3’s 13GB Update Explained


Many Dead Rising 3 fans were surprised when their Xbox One queued up a gigantic 13GB update for download. Many fans were wondering what was packed into the game-sized download. Well, Dead Rising 3 executive producer Josh Bridge has explained what content is packed into the update.

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.

It seems there were numerous fixes that were deployed within the update, but the bulk of the file size was priming the DR3 environment for the upcoming add-on “Operation Broken Eagle”. The add-on will follow four new characters whom will each have their own episode that will examine some of the untold stories of Los Perdidos.

It’s great that there’s a slew of content on its way, some of which is probably pre-installed in the update.
