114w ago - Today Housemarque Game Designer Petteri Putkonen has shared a video announcing that Dead Nation: Road of Devastation will be hitting PSN today in the US and tomorrow in Europe!
To quote: With over 3.8 million recruits and more than 13 billion zombies killed worldwide, the time has come to launch the ultimate zombie-killing spectacle of our time. Think you've got what it takes to survive "Road of Devastation?"
An expansion to Dead Nation with single player and two player co-op modes (online and offline), as well as new trophies to pick up, Road of Devastation is a brand new way to experience Dead Nation. Check out our new launch trailer below!
It reveals some awesome new Road of Devastation moments, along with accolades that Dead Nation received - all in iconic 80′s action movies style!
From the ashes of the apocalypse, an organization has worked in the shadows, tampering with the human gene to engineer the perfect zombie killing machine... you! Continuing from the events of the original game (or is that preceding?), Road of Devastation puts your skills to the ultimate test.
You find yourself at a crossroads leading to three different choices with each road featuring its own challenges and enemies but...
157w ago - Today Sony Producer Daimion Pinnock has confirmed that Dead Nation on PSN will be receiving online voice chat soon!
To quote: We know some Dead Nation online co-op players have requested voice chat functionality.
I'm here to tell you that we've listened to the fans and are taking steps to add voice chat for online co-op in the near future. To reiterate this point, here's a note from the team at Housemarque:

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...
