Capcom has announced that the upcoming Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is going to include a sandbox mode, which should let players tool around Fortune City without the ticking-clock threat of other survivors getting eaten unless you rescue them.
There will be things to do, however. Capcom says that Sandbox Mode will include optional challenges to complete to earn extra cash, which will include things like collection quests, killing a lot of zombies quickly, and “vehicle-based challenges.” The amount of cash you pull down from each challenge will depend on your “rank,” which I assume is your level, but could be a ranking system tied to completing challenges.
We’ll let you know more when we do.
