Case 1-1: Big News is the first case in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record.

Dead Rising 2Edit

In Dead Rising 2, this case is triggered at 7am on September 25, right after giving Katey her daily dose of Zombrex. It is only a cutscene.

Just after the first dose of Zombrex for Katey, Chuck and Stacey are in the Safe House lounge watching TV when a report comes on suggesting that Chuck is responsible for the zombie outbreak. A newscaster refers to his colleague Rebecca Chang who delivers a report, blaming Chuck Greene for the outbreak, after an insider video is released, showing the perpetrator in a Terror is Reality suit detonating a bomb at the cage that held the zombies.

Chuck's anger shows as an uncertain Stacey backs away, unsure what to make of the situation. Chuck convinces her that he is innocent and is being framed. He sets out to find the news reporter to find out what's going on. He leaves the safety of the bunker and heads to the Fortune City Hotel to find Rebecca Chang.

Off the RecordEdit

Actual start time of 7am

  • The Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide incorrectly states Case 1-1 starts at 9am.
  • This case starts automatically after completing Zombrex 1 in Dead Rising 2. However, this is not the case in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record whereas it begins at 8am, not after Frank gives himself Zombrex.
