With less than one month to Christmas Day, it is ironic that the new promotional video released on Tuesday by Microsoft for “Dead Rising 4” is gory. The “Yule Log” video, which runs for 21 minutes, shows human body parts, not wooden logs, roasting on the fire.

Occasionally, someone adds more body parts and uses a baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire – but with blinking Christmas lights – to stoke the fire. Despite the oddness of the video, GameSpot notes that it fits in the holiday theme of “Dead Rising 4” because the story is set during the yearend holiday. When “Dead Rising 4’s” trailer was announced at E3, Microsoft used “Jingle Bell Rock” as background music.

Time Exclusive Launch

Microsoft would launch “Dead Rising 4” on Dec. 6 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC. However, since the release for the two gadgets are time exclusive, in the future, the game – which includes an 18-hole mini golf course for up to four online players - could still be released to PS4 and Steam.

New Graphic Drivers

Besides the gameplay, Nvidia also released a new set of graphic drivers for “Dead Rising 4,” “Watch Dogs 2” and “Steep.” According to VG247, the new drivers, which are version 376.09, are not in beta, so players of these three games should download the drivers to have the best experience, although Nvidia did not specify if there were specific improvements made on the graphic drivers.

“Watch Dog 2” is releasing on Tuesday, but since Monday midnight, the game has been unlocked for Steam and Uplay gamers. “Steep” would be released on Friday, Dec. 2. Meanwhile, Capcom, the publisher of “Dead Rising 4,” confirmed this November that there would be no cooperative multiplayer in the game’s campaign, but it has a co-op solution.
