At Death’s Door: Dead Nation Hits PSN November 30th

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar + Posted by Daimion Pinnock on Nov 15, 2010 // Producer, SCEA

The most intense, chaotic gaming experience of 2010 is almost here! The developers at Housemarque, creators of PSN classic Super Stardust HD, are putting the finishing touches on their latest masterpiece: Dead Nation. Come November 30th in the U.S., it’ll be in your hands for $14.99 — and yes, it includes a Platinum Trophy!

Dead Nation for PS3 (PSN)

November 30th isn’t far off, but stay tuned to the PlayStation.Blog as we reveal even more information in the final days before Dead Nation’s PSN release. We’ll be giving you an up-close look at Dead Nation’s metagame that will pit country versus country in a global battle for high score dominance and the ultimate bragging rights. Also, keep your eyeballs peeled for an upcoming video that will show you how crazed Dead Nation’s gameplay gets when it reaches fever pitch – you’ll be surrounded by more onscreen zombies than you can count complete with per-pixel shadows and lighting, particle effects galore, and realistic ragdoll physics all happening at the same time. Once you’ve seen the worst scenarios Dead Nation has to throw at you, there’s no going back.

Dead Nation features online and offline two-player cooperative play, a lengthy campaign littered with hidden treasures, hugely upgradeable weapons and armor, and tremendous replay value thanks to a host of difficulty levels. The fifth and final difficulty level — “Undead” — will leave you breathless!

Look for Dead Nation on PSN this November 30th for $14.99. Thanks for your support, PS3 fans!

    Based on my experiences, probably 6+ hours depending on your skill. But that’s only the normal difficulty — there are 4 more difficulty levels and they are almost a different game. Much harder, meaning your weapon and armor mod choices become much more important.

This is my first post on the blog and I figured this would be a good time to start!

I’ve been waiting for this news for awhile now. And just like Tyrsis, The Walking Dead has definitely curbed my hunger for Dead Nation, but I still can’t wait to play it!

+ GutsBerserker on November 15th, 2010 at 9:15 am said:

Day 1!

StardustHD was worth every cent, no need to wait for Dead Nation to get a discount.

“Come November 30th in the U.S,…”

I hope you just forgot about Canada for a split second when typing up the post. I was planning to celebrate with pancakes…but will wait until I get confirmation it is coming to Canada on the same day. :)

I think i may have to purchase this one just based on how sick Stardust was. As one of the first PSN titles to offer custom soundtracks (and the first to add it via a patch) {Super Stardust HD}I must ask, will this game DEAD NATION feature custom soundtracks?

I never could understand some trends in videogames.

I never quite wrapped my head around the need for there to be so many top down dual stick shooters on PSN. So understandably I am grown orders of magnitude more baffled by the need, demand or capacity for there to be so many zombie themed variety of the sort.

How many does that tally now, at least half a dozen I reckon, and that is just from the top of my head.

Yeah, need to sit down now, had spinning, feeling anemic…

    My theory is that the twin-stick shooter catalog taps into everyone’s innate need for a new Smash TV.

Is this game diffrent than the other PSN game, Zombie apocalypse, or something like that?

    Radically different. For starters, it’s not arena-based.

Finally! But the $15 price tag was like FUUUUU. But then I see the Platinum trophy. And I was like Oh, ok, Day one purchase. :D
But Man, GT5 and Dead Nation both releasing in November. Now I have to save money for Black Friday deals and GT5 & Dead Nation.

    + Sid Shuman on November 15th, 2010 at 2:15 pm said:

    Default Rifle, shotgun, SMG, flamethrower, blade cannon, and several more I won’t share here. :-) Also there are quite a few deployable items: Molotovs, grenades, Flares, Mines, and all can be upgraded in multiple ways.

@Sid. Please tell me this will be in 3D!!! Superstardust is quite simply the best example of 3D gaming out there at the moment, and trust me, I have every 3D game that is avalible (nine I think upto now) on PS3!!

I’ve never heard of this. Sounds fun & interesting, but is there a demo for us to try?

I distinctly remember someone posting that Dead Nation was only going to be $9.99. Why the price hike?

+ bbonds_007 on November 15th, 2010 at 9:56 am said:

Does this game still have a kill count for each country? I always thought that was an awesome addition!

Also is there any survival mode or any other co-op modes that do not tie in with the standard campaign?


    Daimion Pinnock's Avatar

     

    + Sid Shuman on November 15th, 2010 at 2:17 pm said:

    Yes it does. :-) The standard campaign is pretty much one giant survival mode — your choices are campaign and co-op campaign, or you can choose to play a single level.

Played the Beta and totally loved the game, hugely looking forward to it!

+ bbonds_007 on November 15th, 2010 at 9:58 am said:

@44

I think it was originally planned to be slit screen only, meaning no online co-op. I assume that is part of the $15 price.

    + Sid Shuman on November 15th, 2010 at 2:17 pm said:

    There’s no split-screen in Dead Nation — the co-op all happens on one screen, whether you’re in couch co-op or online co-op.
