IGN broke the news today that Dead Rising 2 will feature a full-fledged multiplayer mode. While exact details on how it will be implemented are scarce, some truly incredible numbers were dropped by Laura Scholl, the product manager of mental mill.
She let it be known that Dead Rising 2 will frequently track at least 800 separate clothing textures to provide the sense of unique zombies onscreen. In addition to this already staggering statistic it was revealed that the game engine, thanks to mental mill, will be able to quickly mass produce characters meaning that players could experience as many as 6000 characters onscreen during multiplayer sessions.
As more information becomes available we will be sure to keep you in the know. In the mean time you should all start planning out how exactly you and your friends plan to take down 6000 zombies.
