118w ago - Today Housemarque Game Designer Petteri Putkonen has announced that Dead Nation is expanding on the PS3 console with the introduction of the Road of Devastation PlayStation 3 DLC!
To quote: We hereby announce exciting news for Dead Nation players around the globe! We've been hard at work creating a new downloadable expansion called "Road of Devastation"!
Before we say more, we'll take this moment to acknowledge an epic milestone in the number of zombies killed worldwide: over 11,700,000,000 - and counting!
To put that number in perspective, that's more than 1.5 times the entire world's population of today (though the game takes place in the near future where Earth's population has grown much bigger...so don't worry, there's still plenty of zombies left).
Also, our worldwide recruit count has risen to over 3.8 million! We wish to humbly thank all the people who have supported the game.
Now, onto Road of Devastation:
From the ashes of the apocalypse, an organization has worked in the shadows, tampering with the human gene, modifying and improving upon it to create the perfect soldier, the ultimate zombie-killing machine - you!

156w ago - XDev Studio Europe Associate Producer Robert Karp has sent out a call for help today for Dead Nation Metagame PlayStation 3 fans.
To quote: Due to issues beyond our control, a nasty, disgusting and horrific zombie outbreak has occurred and we need you to help prove your nation is the best in world at fighting the zombie infection.
Dead Nation has a unique online component which we call the metagame. It means that every time you kill a zombie, we know about it and so does the game. The metagame uses that information to track many things. So, every single zombie kill counts!
Every single dirt-ridden, disgusting sack of flesh you kill will count towards clearing the virus in your country. The more zombies you and your countrymen kill, the quicker the virus will be cleared.
Below is a snapshot of part of the Metagame:
• Currently selected country.
• Player's statistics.
• Statistics about the currently selected country.
• Ticker texts which displays various information about the global status, player's country status, player's friends and about the player.
• Access to more in-depth detailed statistics.
The metagame features an interactive map of the world, which can be used to access all the information. For...
158w ago - SCEA Product Marketing Specialist David Bull has made available a video today showcasing Dead Nation for PS3 turning up the heat, which is heading to PSN next week.
To quote: Dead Nation invades the PlayStation Store in only one week! We want to make sure that you'll hit the ground running because the zombie hordes will be relentless in their quest for fresh, warm meat.
Today, we want to show you Dead Nation in its full chaotic glory. Watch Super Stardust HD pro Tlo-Mek, who has since joined Housemarque's development team due to his gaming prowess, eradicate the zombie infection when the heat is turned up to 11.
Dead Nation is a twin-stick shooter but the controls give you far more flexibility than you might expect. In the video above, you can watch Tlo-Mek, some of you played Dead Nation co-op with him at a MLG event using melee, Rush, and the game environment to his advantage.
All three of these tactics are critical to survive Dead Nation's most fearsome battles, particularly when you're faced with special zombies, Jumpers, Bombies, and other lurking threats - in addition to huge hordes of the undead.
Study up on the control scheme now - the undead are only...
