The game is set a few years after the events of the original Dead Rising. The zombie virus that originated in Santa Cabeza has spread all over the United States. The game will take place in the fictional Fortune City, which is modelled after the real-life city of Las Vegas. Chuck Greene, a former national Motocross champion, is somehow caught in the middle of the zombie apocalypse in Fortune City. Just like Frank West (the previous hero from the original Dead Rising), Chuck must defeat every zombie horde and psychopathic civilian he encounters to rescue the remaining survivors. Among the survivors is Chuck's own daughter, which serves as his primary motivation for battling the undead.
