Shippin' Out Sept. 26-Oct. 2: Dead Rising 2, FIFA 11

There are multiple outbreaks inside gaming world now, as Capcom's zombie action sequel Dead Rising 2 is joined by a horde of recent releases for those platforms, including Activision's latest Guitar Hero title, EA Sports' second major FIFA release with FIFA 19 Coins , along with a trio of the latest titles from Square Enix.

Capcom's Dead Rising 2 sees the absurd action series spread to new platforms with versions with the PlayStation 3 and PC as well as the Xbox 360. The sequel follows a fresh protagonist, motorsports icon Chuck Greene, in a different environment, the Las Vegas-like Fortune City. The game also introduces a different gameplay mechanic that lets players combine circumstances to make improvised weapons, like duct-taping a hearth axe and sledgehammer together to generate "The Defiler."

Those trying to shred that has a figurative axe can decide up Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock recently. While the basic gameplay of Warriors of Rock follows the series' template, Activision and developer Neversoft made changes towards the surrounding game. The developer dedicated to returning the series to its rock roots and tweaked the single-player campaign to be a far more fantasy-oriented affair, with players assembling an army of warriors to Buy FIFA 19 Coins and defeat "The Beast" and free the demigod of rock. The game will ship with 93 tracks, including Rush's entire 2112 rock suite.

While Guitar Hero 5 essentially went head-to-head with all the Electronic Arts-distributed The Beatles: Rock Band not too long ago, both the franchises are giving the other person more a little space this time around. Rock Band 3 isn't arriving until October 26, and EA is instead choosing this week for that multiplatform debut of FIFA 11. The latest EA Sports soccer sim may have a tough road in front of it, as it would be the second release this year to the ordinarily annualized franchise. It's only been five months since EA scored an important hit using the debut of FIFA 2010 World Cup South Africa.

Rounding out your week's biggest releases are three drastically different titles from Square Enix. The publisher is releasing a PC massively multiplayer online role-playing game in Final Fantasy XIV, a downloadable cooperative action game in Lara Croft plus the Guardian of Light to the PC and PS3, and a different take on its mech strategy series Front Mission, from Irvine, California-based Double Helix Games.
