Dead Rising: Watchtower, an original film based on publisher Capcom’s zombie game franchise, will be available one week early for Xbox Live subscribers through Sony’s Crackle app. It’s set to run on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One from March 20 through 26 before rolling out to the general public on March 27, according to an update from Major Nelson.

Dead Rising: Watchtower - Exclusive to Crackle. Movie streaming March 27th

Following Crackle,Watchtower will be released on physical media and other, unnamed digital platforms. Some video on demand channels will release it as an episodic series, rather than a single film.

The Daily Show‘s Rob Riggle stars as Frank West, a photojournalist trying to survive a zombie outbreak and track down its roots in a government conspiracy. He is joined by Harley Morenstein (Epic Meal Time), Aleks Paunovic (This Means War), and Keegan Connor Tracey (Bates Motel). Sleeping Dogs writer Tim Carter penned the script.

Capcom’s Dead Rising first came out in 2006, setting a template for open world zombie brawlers that others would eventually draw inspiration from. Most recently, Dead Rising 3 was an Xbox One exclusive launch title, and was subsequently ported to Windows.
