If a dose of humor and bloody red violence is what you're looking for, then you should check out the "Dead Rising 4" new "Return to the Mall" trailer from Capcom. It's very reminiscent of game's first debut 10 years ago, when "Dead Rising" was released.

Gamespot reports that the "Dead Rising 4" new "Return to the Mall" trailer features the main character, photojournalist Frank West as he finds himself in the Willamette Mall once again, fighting zombies. Unlike his Willamette Mall debut 10 years ago, however, this time Frank is armed with his mech suit, which enables him to tear up zombies and even push over cars.

According to Screenrant, the upcoming "Dead Rising 4" is set to arrive this December, just in time for the holidays. Speaking of the holidays, it seems ta the new "Return to the Mall" trailer finds Frank in the midst of the zombie-packed mall, just like during Christmas time. The survival horror game is returning with its fourth iteration, this time with even more open world experiences and amazing customization options that lets gamers get creative. One of the game's unique selling points has always been the customization of tools and weapons that are really enjoyable to create and use against the zombies.

The "Dead Rising 4" new "Return to the Mall" trailer also introduces the game's new tagline that goes "Let the slay ride begin," which is admittedly a great pun for the holidays. For those who are looking to purchase the game, Microsoft has already announced the preorder freebies that gamers will receive. There are four difference bonuses depending on where gamers will purchase the game.

Those who purchase "Dead Rising 4" on the Xbox Store will receive free giant green fist weapons called X-Fists for the game's new exo suit. Those who purchase from GameStop will receive the Steampunk Snowman Head, which is a combo weapon that targets and freezes enemies with its snowballs. For Best Buy, they're offering the Candy Cane Crossbow and Amazon is giving away a Slicecycle, which is a dirtbike armed with a couple of chainsaws.

"Dead Rising 4" arrives on December 6 on Xbox One and Windows PC. In the meantime, check out the new "Return to the Mall" trailer reminiscent of the game's first debut below.
