I don’t know about you, but given the quality of Housemarque’s last title, Super Stardust HD, I am very excited for this one. Though its, yet, another zombie game, I think the fun factor and overall quality will differentiate itself from other titles, both in content and in quality. Anyone else going to pick this one up? Oh, and the video above shows some new gameplay we haven’t seen before.
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 was announced at Gamecom. A new Sony-published PS3/PSN exclusive game developed by Housemarquee (Super Stardust HD developers):
UPDATE: A few details can be found here:
A war is raging over the planet which has left it in chaos and ruin. A zombie virus has rapidly spread through the human population across the globe, leaving it with one hope – you. Among the few capable of fighting back and surviving the mayhem and destruction, your mission is to take on the zombie masses and come out alive.
