Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition

Twin-Stick Zombie Shooter Gets Broadcast Mode That Lets Viewers Affect Gameplay

Originally a downloadable PlayStation 3 title, Dead Nation is getting quite an update for its PlayStation 4 debut. Dubbed the Apocalypse Edition, this new and improved version of the twin-stick zombie shooter boasts a number of improvements and additions over its last-gen predecessor.

Apocalypse Edition will feature improved textures and effects and can be played in full 1080p HD. Controls have also been improved upon with the introduction of a quick weapon select function. The Road To Devastation expansion for the original PS3 version of the game comes included with Apocalypse Edition, featuring two extra game modes, Arcade and Endless.

Brand new to the PS4 version of the game is Challenge mode. Now upon the completion of a level you can send your score to a friend for them to beat.  When the friend accepts the challenge and attempts to beat the score, your avatar will appear in-game, allowing your friend to see how you achieved your score and inspiring them to keep up.  The game will also come with a Broadcast+ feature which allows for some interesting dynamics between the person playing the game and all the people watching. Viewers of the stream can actually influence the difficulty of the game by voting on various options, like spawning ammo packs for the player or creating a mob of zombies. Viewers will appear in-game for the player to kill as named zombies.

The game is to be released tomorrow on the PlayStation Store and will retail for $15. However, if you are a PlayStation Plus member you can download the game for free. You can check out the game's announcement trailer below.

  • Cant wait to try out the Broadcast+ feature! sounds fun and named zombies? cant go wrong with that ^^

  • I'm glad this game has local co-op, so I can put my 2nd PS4 controller to more use
  • Awesome, can't wait to play this on my PS4 with Remote Play to my Vita as well! This is a great game on the PS3. PS+ continues to be amazing!

  • Loved this game when it released years ago.

    I'll love it all over again, years later.

  • Now that's innovative

  • Good example of ways the new console generation can be used over the old.

  • The title of the article should use "affect" not "effect."
  • Lots of cool new features, I didn't play the expansion pack on the ps3 version so that gives me even more incentive to play.

  • will be playing tomorrow

  • This is really cool!

  • This is how ports should be done. They improved the graphics and added lots of new features. It isn't DN2, but it will suffice. (for now)
  • Next Gen update for free? God I love my PS4.

  • I called it with the pokemon stream. A new way to play

  • When upgrading my 80GB PS3 to a 500GB hard drive I used a 64GB flash drive and I had to delete Dead Nation in order to make enough room, thankfully it was the only game I had to delete. But since game have the one-time download fee I couldn't get it back so I'm glad they're featuring a special PS4 version for this month for PlayStation Plus.
  • Looking forward to trying it.

  • Thats cool.
