From the developer of the popular and successful Super Stardust HD, comes another action packed blaster - this time its infectiously addictive gameplay is more gruesome...

A war is raging over the planet which has left it in chaos and ruin. A zombie virus has rapidly spread through the human population across the globe, leaving it with one hope - you. Among the few capable of fighting back and surviving the mayhem and destruction, your mission is to take on the zombie masses and come out alive.

Do you have what it takes to resist this Dead Nation?

• Pit your wits against hundreds of zombies on screen
• Blast your way with a friend in on or offline co-operative play and rank yourself with online leaderboards
• Track your zombie kills with the daily online world map and reduce the zombie virus with other Dead Nation players in the country you're playing

OK, so it does have 2 person co-op; good thing since Zombie Apocalypse is another top-down shooter with 4 player co-op, but they're boxed-in arenas versus the "Left 4 Dead" progression the DN trailer hinted at. Hope DN has a deep upgrade system.



Not that envious over Shadow Complex anymore.

Blood in DN > Blood in ZA

First thing I thought when I saw this was "it's another SHMUP". It'd be practically the same game as Super Stardust HD if the guy could dash out of danger.

Dead Nation has re-appeared with a new live action trailer.

Following the original announcement of Dead Nation at Gamescom in Cologne last year we’ve kept purposefully quiet about what we’ve got in store for you, but at this year’s E3 we’ll be bringing you right up to speed with the game and what you can expect from Housemarque and Sony Computer Entertainment’s PSN-exclusive zombie game. We’ve been pulling out all the stops over the past year to make this game a nerve shredding, atmospheric and action packed experience, and to whet your appetite for what we’ve got coming up at E3, try this on for size…

Thanks FriskyTanuki I was wondering what the hell happened to this game. I just figured it got canceled or was rehashed into a new project.

That they felt they had to jazz up the trailer with 3/4ths of live footage and only 1/4th gameplay is not a good sign IMO.

Which is what "to whet your appetite for what we’ve got coming up at E3" means.

Zombie Apocalypse was decent. I was really hoping this would be more of a Resident Evil OTS or TPS view but it still looks really good. At least the Camera isn't so far away from the characters.

I had definitely wished that the xbox had something more akin to this game than simply Zombie Apocalypse. The smash tv feel was okay in ZA but something along the lines of walking through town like in Hunter the Reckoning on the old systems would definitely be cool. I wish this was coming out for XBLA....

Zombie Nation's title reminded me of PC game "Nation Red", another zombie shooter.
Zombie game titles aren't too original, unfortunately.

PlayStation Blog has some new details about Dead Nation:

I’m a pathological fan of zombie movies. Night of the Living Dead. Return of the Living Dead. 28 Days Later, [REC], Dawn of the Dead — I count these films among my all-time favorites.

So I was obviously itching to get my mitts on Dead Nation, the upcoming PSN shooter from the creators of Super Stardust HD. Luckily, I got some extensive play time from last week’s NYC PlayStation media day. Here’s what I learned.

Posted Image Posted Image

You can upgrade your guns…a lot. Dead Nation’s environments are dotted with fenced-in “safe zones” that give you a chance to catch your breath and buy supplies from a nearby gun shop. In addition to buying health and ammo, you can purchase mods that will enhance your various weapons in different ways, depending on the gun. The mods upgrade stats such as damage, ammo capacity, firing rate, reload time, and range. While the most potent weapon upgrades are expensive, you can pop open car trunks and chests found through the environments in order to collect cash and other useful items.

The Shotgun is devastating. The Dead Nation build I played featured three weapons — the Shotgun, SMG, and Rifle — with more to come in the final version. Early on, I decided to pour my money into repeatedly upgrading the Shotgun’s damage and spread capability. The results were impressive: My buckshot blasts became massive cones of death, ripping through the ghoul hordes like a wet sneeze through a store-brand tissue. Sometimes I swapped to the SMG for its rapid firing rate, or the Rifle for its long-range capabilities. But come Dead Nation’s release date later this fall, I know what my go-to gun will be.

There are many zombie types. After you shake off the initial shock of battling dozens and dozens of zombies, you’ll quickly learn that not every zombie is created equal. You’ll see fast, gangly zombies that rush up close but fall quickly to melee attacks. You’ll see big, tough zombies that take a licking but move more slowly. I even spotted a few zombie cops that wildly fired their service revolvers while they lunged at me.

Mobility = life. Housemarque’s previous game, twinstick PSN shooter Super Stardust HD, is clearly an influence on Dead Nation’s fast-paced gameplay. For example, rapid kills fill up your combo meter, which in turn sends your score into the stratosphere. As in Super Stardust HD, you’ll also realize the importance of staying mobile to avoid incoming enemies — to get cornered is to die. Luckily, you can throw mines and grenades to clear some temporary space, or use the “rush” move to push your way through a line of hungry flesh eaters.

Dead Nation will be released on PSN later this fall.

Online co-op has never been confirmed for this game. It's safe to say I won't be buying it without it. That new PSN lara Croft game looks equally as cool and has online co-op.
