Looking Forward to the Sequel

Chase discovers a secret about Crystal while Jordan discloses the real intention of General Lyons.

"Dead Rising: Watchtower" is a funny and entertaining zombie adventure based on a video game. Unfortunately there is no conclusion of the story and it seems that a sequel will be made. My vote is six.
