Having already got dead nation on the ps3 I would rather we got something different, but it might be nice with updated graphics.

Interesting that it's just Dead Nation. I'd heard a rumour that they were making a second title.

Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition arrives on PS4 next week
Housemarque’s apocalyptic top-down zombie shooter rises again, with brand new features


Making its way onto PlayStation 4 next Wednesday, 5th March, is Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition – the best ever version of the smash hit PSN classic Dead Nation. What’s more, it will be available to PlayStation Plus subscribers at no additional cost.

Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition is a top-down shoot ‘em up style game, set in an apocalyptic zombie infested world. It comes from the hugely talented developerHousemarque, famous for their Super Stardust titles, and more recently the critically acclaimed RESOGUN.


Dead Nation features a full campaign mode which can be played solo or in co-op. That is both online co-op and the now somewhat elusive local “coach” co-op.

Exclusively on PS4, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition features numerous enhancements, making it the best version of the game yet. You can now play in full 1080p HD, with improved textures, rendering and effects, ensuring the game has never looked sharper. We also improved the controls, adding in a quick weapon select, so your favourite zombie decimator is never out of reach.


The ‘Road to Devastation’ expansion is now included in the main game, giving you two extra game modes – Arcade and Endless, allowing you to test yourself against ever increasing odds. And with support for the official PlayStation companion app, all you completionists out there now have a second screen to monitor your game stats as you play.

One of the new features, which you may have spotted in the trailer, is Challenge mode. Every time you finish a single level you can now send your score over to a friend to try and beat. When playing a challenge you can see the avatar of the player who set the challenge, allowing you to race against them or scope out their high-scoring route.


What’s that I hear you say? Your friends are no match for your zombie decapitating skills? Well how about you take on the challenge of any leaderboard entry, for any single level, made by any player.

My favourite new feature is Broadcast+ mode. In this mode you can stream your game to the masses interactively, and your viewers can influence the difficulty of your game. Periodically all your viewers, whether they be on PS4 or a web browser, have the option to vote between a positive and negative effect that occurs in your game. There are a total of 30 different voting effects that can occur, ranging from spawning zombie packs to giving the player ammo, or even disabling the player’s ability to sprint. But don’t worry, as a player you can get your own back, because voters will appear in your game as named zombies for you to exact your revenge on.

Check out our trailer above, for a glimpse of some of the new features.

Stay on the lookout for more Dead Nation news soon, including hints and tips and an update on the PlayStation Vita version.

So it is just Dead Nation but "better"? I haven't got round to playing it on the PS3 yet! Who is up for a spot of Dead Nation coop? Either platform. @zoob do you have this?

I quite liked Dead Nation for PS3. Haven't had the chance to try co-op yet. So feel free to send me a pm whenever I'm online.

I had the original Dead Nation as a freebie from Sony after the hacking incident back in April 2011. But I'll download this and shoot some zombies with you all.

Bit disappointed to be getting another ps3 port, even if it is for free. But I must admit I do like the sound of Twitch interactive features, and its got all the dlc so not that gutted.

Cool. K was in bed when I got in so I will need to break at some point to make her some dinner in bed, otherwise I will be around!
