Dead Nation PS3 Trailer Revealed, More Undead at E3

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar Posted by on Jun 09, 2010 // Producer, SCEA

Hey all! Firstly, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that contributed to our recent zombie video game trailer in San Francisco this past month.

Many of you guessed it, but here’s the official word: the upcoming PSN exclusive in production is DEAD NATION!

Your help was monumental in putting together our trailer. Below is an introduction from the SCEE and Housemarque teams giving you a little bit of information for our upcoming zombie game. Look out for future updates from myself and the team, as we get closer to the game’s launch later this year.

From Robert Karp, SCEE Producer:

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…

We’ve got a lot more to show off over the coming weeks and months so keep your eyes peeled, stock up on water and canned goods because you never know when you might need to secure your position and fight off the Dead Nation.

Co-Op FTW!

Looks really fun! Much better than Zombie Apocalypse! The graphics are so detailed! Can’t wait to watch E3! Thanks again!



+ mrpaulryan on June 9th, 2010 at 9:11 am said:

Nice graphics, but if the gameplay is identical to Zombie Apocalypse, then I’m not wasting my money on such repetitive stuff.


+ stlthriot on June 9th, 2010 at 9:12 am said:

Gameplay and graphics look great and also nice to see co-op in there! :)


+ Mindplague on June 9th, 2010 at 9:15 am said:

I’ve been waiting for this game for a loooong time!


+ rbanke on June 9th, 2010 at 9:17 am said:

I’ve been a fan of zombie movies for as long as I can remember, so I cant believe I’m saying this but…Enough zombie games.


+ SpeedRacer1955 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:21 am said:

I agree with #8 Zombie games are so last gen. They don’t take any thought to play and dumb down the gamer community. These games are why gamers get labeled as one step away from serial killers.

I don’t buy this genre of game just for that reason “SENSELESS” violence.


+ Sindred on June 9th, 2010 at 9:21 am said:

I hope those are the game’s cinematics. Reminds me of old PS1 live-action goodness.

“I hope that’s not Chris’ Blood.”

Looks great. Will it have online co-op or offline only?


+ gumi42 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:23 am said:

Finally some news on this game I thought it was dead.


+ spatsnaz on June 9th, 2010 at 9:29 am said:

Will buy only because Housemarque is behind this. :P


+ kivi95 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:32 am said:

#9 People like killing Zombies for fun and thats including me.


+ dragonmagician on June 9th, 2010 at 9:38 am said:

Glad to hear this game is coming out this year, and that we will hear more at E3.

PSN game releases are looking better after a slow start (at least for me) to the year.


+ klubjunkee on June 9th, 2010 at 9:39 am said:

Super Stardust HD is still one of my fav PSN download. Can’t wait for the same tight dual analogue controls and fantastic graphics in a Zombie setting.


+ Zampano on June 9th, 2010 at 9:44 am said:

A zombie-killin’ game by the folks that gave me Super Stardust? Yes, please!

+ waypoetic on June 9th, 2010 at 9:46 am said:

Well, that wasn’t a year ago. I enjoyed the part about “PSN exclusive”. If i remember correctly this game was due to launch on both the PS3 and the 360, but i guess things have changed. Either way, i’m picking this up. Been waiting for it ;)


+ PuppetShoJustice on June 9th, 2010 at 9:46 am said:

“It only does The Undead” is perhaps the worst tagline at the bottom of a commercial I’ve ever seen.



+ jimfear on June 9th, 2010 at 9:47 am said:

it look the same as zombie appocalypse!


+ Destiny89 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:48 am said:

Liking the co op


+ BEASTXJASON on June 9th, 2010 at 9:50 am said:

I have been stoked on this since I grabbed the trailer from the EU store loonnngg time ago. Is it ever coming out? I love all zombie shooters and was rather upset with the last one on psn which recieved no developer support in terms of dlc. This one is a day one buy for me.


+ nem0905 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:58 am said:

This has Zombie Apocalypse gameplay written ALL over.


+ zombie_56 on June 9th, 2010 at 9:58 am said:

looks epic but ill be playing demon souls for a long time!


+ KazeEternal on June 9th, 2010 at 10:11 am said:

*sigh* more zombies.

I’ll give it a go for the fun factor, but seriously guys…. enough with the damned zombies already.


+ MartiniMan on June 9th, 2010 at 10:15 am said:

Less Zombie Apocalypse, more Left 4 Dead please.


+ RainMan77551 on June 9th, 2010 at 10:16 am said:

Is this just Arena Kill-A-Thon or is this going to be more of a mission/ story campaign kind of game. I’m hoping for the latter. Zombie Apocalypse already gave us the Arena style game and I’m damn bored of that.

    Hey RainMan77551,

    Dead Nation will be more of the latter. There will be a campaign that can be played solo or with a friend. We’ll have more information out to the community in the coming months so stay tuned.


+ F-minus on June 9th, 2010 at 10:16 am said:

Im hungry, anyone have anything in there lunch there not going to eat? Zoombie brains?


+ narwhalSTAB on June 9th, 2010 at 10:16 am said:

@waypoetic- You have a bad memory. This game was always PSN exclusive. Zombie Apocalypse was multi-platform.


+ donvarone on June 9th, 2010 at 10:17 am said:

look another top down zombie shooter where have i seen that befor oh yeah everywhere something new please sheesh


+ Globox_82 on June 9th, 2010 at 10:28 am said:

Looks awesome


+ Wipeoutt31 on June 9th, 2010 at 10:28 am said:

Zombies FTW.


+ BigPoppaChunk on June 9th, 2010 at 10:31 am said:

from that clip i saw it was a third person top down shooter is that the case or was that just the clip .

i hope it will be a slightly elevated over the shoulder third person shooter like gears and res evil 5 , let me know thanks, it looks great.


+ thegriefer on June 9th, 2010 at 10:32 am said:

If it has multiplayer co op it will be a huge success!


+ BigPoppaChunk on June 9th, 2010 at 10:40 am said:

i gather its a ways out by the weeks and months comment but i was wondering if you had tenative of couse, release date , price point and rough file size.


+ Onarum on June 9th, 2010 at 10:45 am said:

to people comparing this to zombie apocalypse, please, that game was pure garbage, this looks FAR better, both graphically and gameplay wise.


+ AceOfSpades725 on June 9th, 2010 at 10:51 am said:

This trailer was so much fun to make! Thanks again for the opportunity! lovin the gameplay/graphics so far from what I could see.


+ KwietStorm on June 9th, 2010 at 10:53 am said:

Over the coming weeks and months? Is this game ever coming out? And I bet its not online, which will likely lose a sale from me if that’s the case.


+ footballrule on June 9th, 2010 at 10:53 am said:

This game will have multiplayer right? Like maybe deathmatch or something? Any plans for Co-Op?


+ station3fever on June 9th, 2010 at 10:57 am said:

shooting, nades,mines blowing the [DELETED] out of zombies has always been a pleasure but to see them splatter all over the place “LOVE IT.” Graphics look awesome. Hello Daimion, Just 1 question. the sound track i hear in the video, will it be in any part of the game? (it sounds [DELETED] good)and thanks :)


+ zombie9 on June 9th, 2010 at 11:10 am said:

I’m a Zombie killing machine!!! ;)Peace


+ TheForbiddenOne on June 9th, 2010 at 11:10 am said:

This looks great! This looks like it will be way better than Zombie Apocalypse. The graphics especially. Hopefully it isn’t more than $10.


+ hife on June 9th, 2010 at 11:11 am said:

Wow. From that small taste, it doesn’t look much different from some other games, but I still really want it! The graphics look amazing.


+ bball230 on June 9th, 2010 at 11:18 am said:

How does this compare to burn zombie burn? I loved the concept of that game quite a bit. I hope it is similar.


+ spunnups on June 9th, 2010 at 11:20 am said:

Make sure there are tons of weapons and innovative explosions/ways to kill the undead. Do not make another generic zombie game, we have plenty of them.


+ Airwalkinman17 on June 9th, 2010 at 11:26 am said:

Hell yeah!!!
Great to hear that it’ll have an adventure-like campaign.
If that’s the case than this looks like a real winner for me. the atmostpheric graphics and lighting effects looked awesome too.
This is on my Must Buy list.
Cool commercial btw.


+ americanGTA on June 9th, 2010 at 11:29 am said:

you guys are gonna leave left for dead left for dead


+ thevampirejake on June 9th, 2010 at 11:41 am said:
