47w ago - Housemarque Games Designer Petsku has announced that Dead Nation: Road of Devastation is getting an Arcade Expansion Pack today!
To quote: We're excited to announce a brand new game mode for Road of Devastation (the expansion pack to Dead Nation) called Arcade, which is a brand new way to experience Road of Devastation!
Everyone who's taken the Road knows of the Egogate experiment - to find the perfect zombie killer who can survive longest against ever-increasing odds (the fallen heroes' DNA are allegedly used to clone and breed the perfect soldier).
The new Arcade mode may actually see you survive the ordeal and get out alive! You can choose your difficulty level, and checkpoints will revive (or is that clone?) you.
Completing Arcade mode on different difficulty levels will also unlock new Road of Devastation concept art.
If you've never experienced Road of Devastation before, now's the perfect time! Think you've got what it takes to get out alive? Download Arcade mode today and find out!

89w 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"!

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:

127w 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...
