Microsoft Dead Rising 4 Giveaway Prizes Include An Xbox One S And A Seagate Game Drive SSD

Frank West, Capcom's popular freelance photographer and photojournalist turned zombie exterminator for the past decade, is about to return for some Christmas-themed carnage in Dead Rising 4. To welcome him back and celebrate his return, Microsoft's Major Nelson is giving away some goodies to randomly selected winners who answer a simple question—what is your favorite Dead Rising combo weapon (or weapon of choice during the zombie apocalypse)?

There's an official form to submit your answer and those are the only ones that will be eligible for the contest. Major Nelson says he's trying out a new method for contest entry, and specifically says do not leave an entry in the blog post's comments section or on Twitter.

Xbox One S

Easy enough, but what do you stand to win? Some really sweet swag. The best loot goes to the grand prize winner who will receive the following:
  • Xbox One S Console w/ 2TB
  • Console Stand
  • Xbox Design Lab Code to design your own Xbox Wireless Controller
  • Astro A50 Wireless Headset for Xbox One
  • Seagate Game Drive for Xbox SSD (512GB)
  • Digital Xbox One code for Dead Rising 4 (standard edition)
WARNING: TRAILER NSFW (there are couple of S-bombs)

That's not a bad score, and neither is the second place package—it includes all the same items, minus the console and stand.

Major Nelson will select an additional five runner up winners, each of which will receive a digital code for Dead Rising 4. The deadline to enter is 7:00 pm ET / 4:00 pm PT on Tuesday, December 6. Winners will have 72 hours to respond to the email notification.

As for Dead Rising 4, it's an open world survival horror game that will play a little different from past Dead Rising titles. Unlike before, there will not be a timer system or a co-op story option. However, it will still feature an open world setting like its predecessors.
