Because what's the point of having access to a giant toybox if you aren't allowed to play with the toys inside? Without a time limit, I mean. Man, who puts a time limit on a toybox? Maybe if your parents were communists or something, or just terrible people.

Anyway, it was announced earlier today that photojournalist Frank West's return to the limelight in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will come packed with a brand new sandbox mode that'll let you wreak havoc throughout Fortune City without a timer ticking down in the back of your head. This new mode will feature a number of challenges interspersed throughout the city, including collection challenges, vehicle-based challenges, and zombie massacre challenges, all of which will yield cold hard cash for Frank to spend in the pawn shop or in vending machines.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record is set to hit the PS3, 360, and PC in October.
