Dead Nation Expands With “Road of Devastation” DLC

Petteri Putkonen's Avatar Posted by Game Designer, Housemarque


We hereby announce exciting news for Dead Nation players around the globe! We’ve been hard at work creating a new downloadable expansion called “Road of Devastation”! Before we say more, we’ll take this moment to acknowledge an epic milestone in the number of zombies killed worldwide: over 11,700,000,000 – and counting! To put that number in perspective, that’s more than 1.5 times the entire world’s population of today (though the game takes place in the near future where Earth’s population has grown much bigger…so don’t worry, there’s still plenty of zombies left).

Also, our worldwide recruit count has risen to over 3.8 million! We wish to humbly thank all the people who have supported the game.

Now, onto Road of Devastation:


From the ashes of the apocalypse, an organization has worked in the shadows, tampering with the human gene, modifying and improving upon it to create the perfect soldier, the ultimate zombie-killing machine – you! Continuing from the events where the original game left off (or, is it actually the other way around…), Road of Devastation will put your skills to the ultimate test. You’ll find yourself waking up in a laboratory with only one way out. Outside the door you’re presented with a choice – a crossroads leading to three different paths, each with their own unique environments, challenges and enemies waiting for you. If you manage to overcome the challenges, just when you think it’s over, you’ll make a startling revelation…

In addition to the range of enemies and weapons you’re already familiar with from the original game, Road of Devastation will present you with a variety of new tools and equipment to dispose of enemies with, while also introducing new enemies and obstacles you’ll encounter in unique new environments.

Stay tuned as we reveal more info and details on the blog soon. Keep up the fight, your country needs you!

Figured something would show up eventually, considering the “Downloable Content” or “Playstation Store” or whatever menu item in the game. Getting this day 1 for sure.

“Also, our worldwide recruit count has risen to over 3.8 million!”
This made me laugh. The game was free for 2/3rds of the population who played it.

This is good news, but I’m stuck in the graveyard chapter. I can’t survive that never-ending horde & I’m playing on braindead! Great game for PSN, but too hard for me.

nanashi17 said:

September 6th, 11:13 am

Wow this game been I don’t how long they now coming out with DLC, oh whatever I still play it.

YawgmothGod said:

@ lisatsunami
You must kill the screaming zombies on the cripts the fastest possible, but yeh is difficult even on normal level

devilmosh said:

While I got this game last spring, I’ve only recently been really hooked on it (not sure why it took so long – distracted with other games, I suppose). So this is excellent news! I need to work on beating it in the meantime. I’m in the Harbor right now.

@lisatsunami A useful trick for me is upgrading your rifle to the fullest extent. It shoots faster then, and you never run out of ammo. Then max out your mines and use them. That and keep the SMG stocked up for the mad rushes, and shoot the yellers (I forget what they’re officially called) first in the graveyard – gotta break the walls of the buildings down to get to them. So long as they’re screaming, the zombies will keep coming.

When are we going to get a Left 4 Dead type game from you guys? We need a proper FP zombie game for the PS3!

wow, awesome stuff, I am currently playing through this game with a friend and we get together every couple days to play it and try to beat it, we play for a few hours, but still haven’t beaten it, still need like 3 chapters. With this though now we have more to go xD looking forward to it though, I am enjoying the hell out of it. How much will it cost though? 5$? hopefully….

September 6th, 2:12 pm

Add me to the annoying group of people saying:

“Free for + Please”

Otherwise I’ll probably skip it. But thanks – DN’s a great game! I highly recommend it to those who haven’t tried it.
