"About the only thing to do in this town is kill time at the shopping mall. "
—Ed, during the helicopter ride

The Willamette Parkview Mall is the main setting of Dead Rising.

The mall is located in the heart of the town of Willamette, Colorado as the center of entertainment. The mall was open in 2003.[1] When the outbreak occurred in September 2006, the mall was undergoing several renovation projects, specifically in the North Plaza, as the mall prepared to celebrate its third anniversary.[2] The mall features six different areas and seventy-nine shops, as well as a movie theater, a supermarket, a gym, two hardware stores and a gun shop. There is a sewage tunnel underneath the clock tower in Leisure Park which is uncovered by a helicopter crash and is used by Frank and Isabela to escape the mall when the Special Forces invade. Any location outside of the mall is inaccessible to Frank.

Willamette IncidentEdit

On September 19th, some survivors of the zombie outbreak took shelter in the mall and began to barricade the doors of the Entrance Plaza. Lindsay Harris saw her dog Madonna outside and opened the doors, which allowed the zombies to enter the mall. The zombies quickly invaded and killed all but a few of the survivors in the Entrance Plaza: Frank West, Dr. Russell Barnaby, the mysterious Isabela and Cheryl Jones. With an entrance into the mall, zombies quickly spread to the other areas of the mall, feasting on those who didn't flee in time. Otis Washington welded the Security Room door shut, preventing zombies from invading and creating a safe zone for survivors. With Frank West finding himself trapped in a zombie infested mall, he goes out to get his big scoop to find out the truth behind the zombie outbreak. After gathering information through cases and scoops throughout the mall, he finds out the deranged psychopath who started the nightmare and why, and stops his final plan...or so he thought.
