Co-operative play will not be supported in the four planned Dead Rising 3 DLC episodes, executive producer Josh Bridge has confirmed.

"No, there's no co-op for each of the four episodes," Bridge explained in an interview on Xbox Wire. "We chose to do that so we could really drill down on a single-player experience and really tell that character's story.

"We see and know that everyone really loves co-op, which is why all of those weapons and vehicles and stuff you get in the episode can be brought into the main game for co-op as well. So, say, in Nightmare mode, you can go into the weapons locker and vehicle garage and find that stuff there. "

Released tomorrow, the first DLC, Operation Broken Eagle, will cost £7.99 and feature a new mission, five new weapons, one new combo weapon, one new vehicle, a new clothing outfit, plus additional Gamerscore and the ability to carry experience points back to Dead Rising 3.

All four DLC episodes can be had at a cheaper price by buying the Season Pass for £23.99.
