Dead Nation to be Shown at E3


It’s looking like Sony’s PSN title lineup is really starting to come to life and kick the competition’s ass, as there has been game after game being announced to be coming exclusively to the console (the most recent release being the excellent Joe Danger). And here’s another one, Dead Nation, which is in development by Housemarque. Darrin reported on the game back in August.

The trailer above was created from when Sony called out to fans to be cast in an “upcoming zombie-game trailer” and the folks they chose are, well, in this trailer. It’s a bit cheesy, but the coolest parts, in my opinion, are, of course, the gameplay.

Dead Nation looks to be like the overhead shooters we’ve all come to love (think Super Stardust HD, PixelJunk Shooter, etc), mixed with zombie after zombie coming after you, much like Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising (the titles for zombie games seem to have a common theme anymore, but I just can’t put my finger on it…).

The game looks really good graphically, though, and if they can differentiate themselves with the content and make it a very fun game (offline and online co-op please; with maybe up to 4 players?), this could be another one to keep your eye on (it is being done by the people who developed the excellent Super Stardust HD, anyway). Sony is expected to show more of the title at E3 next week.

    This game is going to be sick and the opening trailer reminds me of the good ol zombie movies from my past! Maaaaaan i can’t wait for some twin stick (realistic graphic), zombie shooting action! :)

    it reminded me of I made a game with zombies in it; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLc9YGdJtjA for the Xbox Live Arcade at first. This could be great fun with on and offline 4 player co-op although they only seem to show 2 in that trailer. Oh and that trailer just oozed 70′s zombie horror flick, which is always good.

    I’m not into the zombie genre… It gives me the creeps… :)

    @Trev: lol, this one looks much cooler, though :P. Hopefully this one has the 4 player co-op like I mentioned
