LOS ANGELES — Frank West is back in Willamette, Colo. for Dead Rising 4 — just in time for another zombie apocalypse. Scheduled for a holiday 2016 release, the Xbox One-exclusive title features more than a little mayhem involving festive decor such as a candy cane gun.

Developed by Capcom the irreverent horror title retains many of the hallmarks of the previous series (an inordinate amount of the living dead and crazy, fantastical weapons with which to dispatch them). However, this old dog has learned a couple of tricks that will affect gameplay for the better. I went hands-on with the open-world survival horror at E3 2016 and now I’m counting down the days until I’m wielding an ice sword and mowing down waves of zombies again.
