Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is to get a new skills pack for Frank next week, in a similar mould to the multiple skills packs provided for Chuck's outing in the original Dead Rising 2. This one is the 'Cyborg Skills Pack', which transforms Frank into a zombie killing machine.

Cyborg Frank can deal electricity damage to the undead hordes, psychos and looters roaming around Fortune City, and has a greater brute force and enhanced indestructible body parts to help him in doling out increased damage to whatever gets in his way. here's the perks you can expect:

  • Electricity damage added to all regular attacks
  • Increased overall damage on melee attacks
  • Increased damage output and magnified electric effects with electrical appliances

You'll be able to download the Cyborg Skills Pack for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record from October 25th for $1.99/€1.99/£1.59.

This is a disgrace. First we get DR2, with DLC like this which should`ve been in game from the start. Then, we get Capcom`s boot in our collective face with Off The Record, which is nothing more than a retooling of the original DR2 with small new features thrown into the same world and storyline. And now they start releasing more DLC that should`ve been in the game.

I don`t care how big a fan of DR/Capcom you are, this game and DLC shouldn`t be bought, out of mere principle.

Frank:The Terminator! LOL!

@3 Seriously?Have you not seen the news?It is a Disc-game that takes the Fortune City Events to a "What If" scenario.

To make it more clear:What happened in DR2 with the ending S was what really happened.(Chuck gets Framed,Clears his name and escapes Fortune City with Katey and Stacey and becomes famous just like Frank West did)

The "what if" scenario is what would have happened if the protagonist from the first game Frank West was the one to cover the incident of fortune City instead of Chuck Greene.Because of the change in protagonist and story,some things have been changed from the original to suit the "what if" plot. Hope this clears it up and if you have anymore questions,feel free to ask.

P.S. When I say Disc-game,I mean that it is Retail.

@4 You really need to chill out. I won't be buying this game anytime soon, but it was released over a year from DR2, so it's not like it was something that they held from the customer and released a few months later.

And it's CAPCOM, of course they're going to release DLC that should have been in the game. It shouldn't be a surprise anymore that they do this, it should be expected; however lame it is.

@7 ok I'd like to know the logic behind this. How is this a dlc of a dlc when off the record ISN'T a dlc?

Its funny when people comment on things without actually knowing what they are talking about

Lucky I can get the game free, or this dlc would be a problem...

I like the skills, and the look...rather the ninja suit, that helped alot in the last one.

Feel sorry for everyone writing this game off. Besides OTR comes with all the DR2 DLC at a cheaper retail price. Its a great game with a small learning curve. Don't like the skill pack? Buy a candy bar instead.

I bought Dead rising 2 and also bought Dead rising OTR 2 for 13 euro. For that price i will not complain about capcoms BS. A full game for that price is very decent.

I was a bit disappointed when I first started playing OTR. but once you realize it is a what if? situation, and you meet the new psychos and the excellent twist at the end its just as good as the original DR2. not sure about Capcom selling suit packs though, im doing just fine with out them.
