Dead Rising 2 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. Taking place in the fictional Fortune City (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.
Just like Frank West (the previous hero from the original Dead Rising), Chuck must survive through every zombie horde he gets into as well as psychopathic civilians and rescue surviving ones. Among the survivors is Chuck’s own daughter, which serves as his primary motivation for battling the undead.
Capcom have mentioned in an interview that part of Chuck’s quest will force him to participate in the violent game show, “Terror is Reality”
