If you’re a PS Plus member who hasn’t haven’t taken advantage of Sony’s February free games offering of Outlast (PS4) and Metro: Last Light (PS3), today is your last chance to get them both before they’re replaced by the new-and-improved Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition (PS4) and Tomb Raider (PS3).
Dead Nation’s re-release on PS4 comes with next-gen-ified textures and effects, full HD (1080p) support, improved controls, a new mode that lets you challenge your friends with your high scores to see if they can beat them, and the option to live-stream to an audience who can vote to affect the difficulty of the game in real-time. The best part? All of it comes bundled with the equally as fantastic Road To Devastation expansion. Read on for an announcement trailer.
And now its official. Sony has confirmed that developer Housemarque’s excellent top-down zombie shoot ‘em up will indeed be coming to the PS4 on March 4. More than that however, is the news that it will be free for all PS Plus subscribers and it will be joined by a slew of other exciting freebies.
The Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition will bring with it updated visuals and controls, as well as a “sweet interactive broadcast mode” that utilizes the PS4′s Twitch streaming features to let your viewers vote to decide your fate in-game.
It looks like Developer Housemarque’s excellent top-down undead shoot ‘em up is coming to the PlayStation 4 and they’re calling it the Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition. Of the many similarly themed games we’ve seen over the last few years, this is easily my favorite. It’s dark and gory good fun that can be shared with a friend in co-op, and the meta-game, which pits every country’s kills against each other, provides a little extra incentive to kick ass. Because, ya know, patriotism.
Back in September, the dev teased their next PS4 title, and while I originally assumed it would be a sequel, that assumption has been proven incorrect. This will be a port of the original game, released in 2010, and it will be free to download for PlayStation Plus subscribers in Hong Kong on March 6.
Yeah, Hong Kong. I’ll update when I have details on release dates and pricing for other regions, as well as what that “Apocalypse Edition” bit means.
Indie developer Housemarque has released a brand new trailer for their upcoming PS3 title Resogun that’s actually more of a very subtle tease for their next game, which my perfectly honed investigative instincts tells me will be Dead Nation 2. The first game is still one of the best, if not the best, cooperative zombie-themed arcade title on the PS3. It’s good gory fun you can share with a friend and its unique metagame — which had countries competing for the most zombie kills — was a nice touch.
The developer has kept busy since Dead Nation released back in 2010 with games like Outland and the Angry Birds Trilogy, but it looks like we’ll soon be getting more from the post-apocalyptic series, possibly even on next-gen consoles. Watch the super classy teaser video after the break.
During Sony’s media briefing last night they announced that Dead Nation — one of the best zombie arcade games on PSN — will soon be coming to the PS Vita. If you’re unfamiliar with it, Dead Nation is a two-player cooperative zombie survival game played from the top down perspective. You run around collecting money and mowing down hordes of the undead, as well as the more intimidating mutations, as you try and make your way to the safe zone. If you have a Vita, this is something worth getting excited over.
Remember Robotron 2084? Smash TV? Well you should. Many many games nowadays stuck a needle into the vein of Smash TV and Robotron, sucked out the sweet sweet juices, and used them to create new games. Dead Nation is one of those.
There isn’t much to the story. Which is totally fine. There doesn’t need to be more to the story then you are some guy trying to survive in a crazy zombie apocalypse. And that’s what it is. Past the break for more! READ MORE
You like killing zombies? Everyone does. That’s why there are so many zombie games. Yadda yadda, same old story. Sometime in the future a virus breaks out and infects the world. Blah blah, you have to kill them. Really, just watch the trailer and see if you’d be into it. Screens past the break. Game features as well.
The game is looking at a fall release this year on the Playstation Network. READ MORE
