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

Daimion Pinnock's Avatar Posted by 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!

    If you like Stardust, get your hands on this game. Play it at a friend’s house or something.

(sorry for double posting)

The following link has a possible trophy list that may or may not be accurate. The spoiler warning is for if any story related trophies. View at your own risk.

    From what I know, that list is pretty much accurate.

    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.

Does this title have Move or 3D support. I just got a great 3D tv and would love to use this title as a show case :D

    Sid Shuman said:

    November 15th, 2:20 pm

    No news on either of these.

Link01 said:

BTW, is there a discount for PSPlus users? That would just make my month :D

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

PuppetShoJustice said:

Where can I find out more about the mentioned weapon and armor mods?

Can’t wait for this one!

xaos said:

November 15th, 12:00 pm

Definitely a day one purchase for me, speaking as a recovering Stardust addict. Hell, at one point, I was in the top 20 on the global leaderboards for that one :P

Sabexxs said:

November 15th, 12:11 pm

OMG, I can’t wait this game looks awesome!

plaztiksyke said:

November 15th, 12:15 pm

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.

Dark-Cloud4 said:

November 15th, 1:05 pm

TheGuardianFID said:

November 15th, 1:08 pm

YAY, I was in the Beta, IT PWND, SOLD TO THE MAX LOL!!! 8)

Dark-Cloud4 said:

November 15th, 1:09 pm

if someone didn’t use killzone 3 beta code and don’t want it send it to me please T_T … add me if you want T_T
i hate GG because they give ps plus the beta and didn’t give the fans , little big planet and heavy rain gave all the people a beta code but killzone 3 didn’t because of ps plus T_T ..

November 15th, 1:28 pm

Regardless of the platinum for that price I would hope that there would be a demo for it.


November 15th, 1:29 pm

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

Looks and sounds great so far. Hopefully there will be a demo!

xRedxViolence said:

November 15th, 2:03 pm

This looks good…. but next time can you guys or someone else make an actual third person view Zombie game? I’d like to see a character who is a Sheriff like Rick Grimes from “The Walking Dead” Tv Series.

Question for you Sid….I’ve read that there is no Online matchmaking and you can only play co-op with someone from your friends list. Is this the case?

    Hmmm I didn’t dig in that deep — not sure, to be honest.

    November 15th, 3:19 pm

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

    Anything you can afford, you can have on you in your inventory.
