Will you survive the zombie outbreak in Fortune City? Find out by entering the Dead Rising 2 Giveaway! Be sure to check out to create your own weapons and submit them for a chance to get your creation featured in the next Dead Rising game!

Courtesy of Capcom, The Zed Word zombie blog is offering you THREE chances to win one (1) copy of the hotly anticipated game DEAD RISING 2 for the Xbox 360. In Dead Rising 2, you can combine items into powerful and gory combat weapons, so we've decided to offer you a combination of ways to win!


A.) EMAIL with your Full Name, Address, and Phone Number. Subject line: DR2 contest.


C.) FOLLOW @thezedword on Twitter and RETWEET our contest announcement.

If you combine two, you double your chances of winning. If you combine all three, you triple your chances! Don't miss your chance to experience all these brand new zombie-killing features:
*Thousands of Zombies On Screen: The undead are everywhere creating a dynamic and challenging zombie-killing experience for the player as weapons will be created to kill massive amounts of zombies at one time!

* 2-Player Co-Op: Co-op play is introduced to the Dead Rising universe for the first time as players can invite their friends to partner up with them at any time to take on the zombie massacre- tag-team style! Play with a friend and have even more fun as you lure zombies in using strategic items like a toy helicopter or a firecracker. Once the zombies have gathered, your friend can rain bullets from above or shoot at a strategically-placed gas tank to create a deadly explosion that will take out masses of the enemy. Killing zombies with a friend is always more fun!

* Terror is Reality: Allows 4 players to compete in a gladiator type show that pits zombies against a group of players in the ultimate Vs. multiplayer blood bath

* Combo Weapons: Players can combine two everyday items using duct tape to create the ultimate zombie killing creations such as the Portamower and Paddlesaw. Unlocking combo cards along the way will give players the advantage as the helpful cards will show you what items are best for combining. The more zombies you destroy using your creative combo's, the more Prestige Points you can earn which levels up Chuck along the way.
