Video: Dead Nation: Weapon & Armor Upgrades and PS3 Theme


Sponsored Links
200w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has made available a Dead Nation trailer video today which spotlights weapon and armor upgrades alongside news of a new PS3 Theme.

To quote: Zombies, zombies everywhere. They're coming from above you and below, they're coming from all sides. So how are you supposed to fend off the increasing hordes as you progress through Dead Nation? Upgrades!

In Dead Nation's action-packed levels, it's crucial to collect as much cash as possible from the undead hordes and trunks of vehicles. Once you find a Weapon Shop, you'll be able to cash in your loot and purchase more ammo and, most importantly, weapon upgrades.

Increasing the power and firing rate for your default Rifle can be the difference between life and (un)death, especially since it's your designated fallback weapon and the only gun with unlimited ammo.





The SMG and Shotgun also benefit enormously from power and firing rate, helping you annihilate dozens of ghouls at a time. You can also upgrade ammo carrying capacity and clip size for most weapons, while power weapons such as the Blade Cannon feature special weapon-specific upgrades.

What's more, you can also upgrade deployable items. Grenades can have a greater blast radius, flares can burn longer to make for an even more useful diversion, and mines can be infused with multi-stage explosive charges to keep the pain coming. You can also increase your carrying capacity for these items - if you've got the cash!

You'll also come across armor pieces hidden throughout the environments of Dead Nation, so keep your eyes peeled for golden crates. Armor pieces can be mixed and matched, enabling you to customize your character's attributes at Weapon Stores in between levels.

Want to be a melee master? Select armor with a high Strength rating. Want to shrug off enemy zombie attacks? Max out your Endurance rating. Prefer to rely on evasive maneuvers? Choose armor with high Agility. You can mix and match to specialize in one attribute or become a Jack of all trades, so the choice is yours!

This week on the PlayStation Store, we released the City of the Dead theme for free. Hope you all enjoyed it! Keep your eyes on the Store next week as the Dead Man's Hand dynamic theme is coming out on Nov. 2nd for North America. You can pick it up for $2.99 but we're giving it away for FREE for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Enjoy!
