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!

lol @ jazzyrider !! “never heard of it”

re: TrueStoryGuy i have been following this game for over a year now and have never read anything about how much it was going to cost. so you must have read that from someones guess.

oh and btw the game is awesome. i had the beta and loved it. it took me over 10 hours to beat because i like to explore and look for the hidden stuff.

you guys will love it.

Thank you and YOU’RE WELCOME!

    Yes, the list is accurate. The spoiler warning is also true since some trophies are related to beating different levels and reading the trophy name will give away the setting in which that level takes place… and what would be the fun in knowing that before playing the game????

    Yep, surprisingly in-depth storyline. It’s not The Walking Dead or anything, but it was more fleshed out than I had originally expected.

The 30th seems so far away considering the illusion of time going so slow because of GT5’s release on the 24th, but it’s ok after I get my hands on GT5 Dead Nation will seem to be released the day after :P

+ plaztiksyke on November 15th, 2010 at 12:15 pm said:

does it render in 1080p native? if not, does it do 2x MSAA @ 720p and then downscale to 1080p?

does it have 24-bit HD audio for at least some of the audio assets?

I’m really looking forward to playing the local co-op mode with my husband. PSN seems to have so many more local co-op games lately than XBLA.

Dead Nation has to be the most highly anticipated game for some people in years. From what ive seen its everything a Zombie game should be. Anyone complaining over $15 for this game needs a reality check. I would pay $60 for this game.

Bring it on – Cant Wait

    You start with Rifle, Shotgun, and SMG. Then you buy the other weapons (or not, if you want to save the cash for upgrades!).
