The Hong Kong PlayStation Blog leaks news on an unannounced port of Housemarque's 2010 hit.
Pretty awesome and its supposed to be free with PS+
"Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition" I hope it's something of a GOTY edition with the DLC and or an enhanced version with something extra.
I hope Dead Nation 2 is four players.
Yes. 4 players would be really good. I really miss couch co-op top down shooter games like this.
Without screwing it up.
Why not just make a sequel.... ? Sigh......
Well considering their last game Resogun just released 3 months ago the porting of this game was completed insanely fast. Also maybe they're releasing this to build more demand for a sequel.
While working on DLC for Resogun at the same time. They've been doing a lot lately.
I didn't think they were that big of a studio but maybe they have two teams then? I remember a while back their was talk of the Vita getting Dead Nation so either it may release alongside the PS4 version or it may have jumped platforms.
Your avatar fits great with your comment. lol
I'm pretty sure they're doing both as well as upcoming DLC for Resogun.
Graphics were already pretty clean on the PS3 version so will be interesting to see how this differs.
4 player mode...
8 would be insane.
Even better lighting, maybe 4 player co-op? Game was awesome already so even if they've just hit it with a 1080p brush I'd be happy enough.
The frame rate wasn't though, especially in coop, when me (UK) and my buddy in Australia played online sometimes it would slow down that much it was like playing in bullet-time We assumed it was lag, maybe it was, I still LOVED it, had buckets of fun getting the platinum
Eh - if its the only free ps4 games for march i will yawwn
So you haven't played this with friends
Or with headphones on hard ... ;D The game was really fun.
I have played it with friends. Got the platinum trophy. And that's the point. We want something new. I know it's early on, but the ports are old already.
This is awesome. Another reason why PS+ is cool. I guess they are trying to get everyone that missed out on it on PS3 a shot to play it since Deadnation 2 may be coming soon.
already got this when psn went down lame also free gt6 theme cool and infamous 10% off? so 54 for digital version sweet
I wouldn't trust the other things to happen in the US or EU. Hong Kong Plus typically gets 1 free dynamic theme a month, which rarely leaves the country and I can't think of a time we (the west) were offered one of them for free. The discount might happen, though most sales tend to be regional.
Hong Kong seems to have held onto the old structure of PS+ from before the instant game collection became the norm-- remember how we would get a bunch of themes, avatars, ps one games, and so forth every month? Western countries lost that stuff, but the East seems to have retained some of it. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I rarely change my theme or avatar as it is.
disappointed this will be the free game on +...Sony shouldnt follow xbox and have 3 year old games given out(i dont care if its a port, its an old game) AND they have already given it out for free before
yes, disagree with me and include no explanation for pointing out facts
"disappointed this will be the free game on +" I'm not disappointed, therefore I disagree. You can't drop a few "facts" in amongst a bunch of opinion and then pretend there's no opinion involved.
It's ok to give port of a 3 year old game because it's a new console. They can't go and give games like KZ or BF4. They wouldn't have to give anything at all on PS4 because it just came out. So be happy that you get anything at all. On top of that it's an awesome game. If they add 4 players I'd buy it even though I could get it for free just to support housemarque. Because they are just that awesome
not asking for games like kz and especially not BF4...but we cant even get something like Basement Crawl? come on
Then go and support Basement Crawl and buy it. And do us all a favor and quit whining like a spoiled little brat girl.
Maybe they are disagreeing with you because......they aren't disappointed? Maybe most people realize the system is 3 months old and doesn't exactly have a plethora of content, let alone content they can give out free. Maybe, just maybe...people disagree with you that Sony is following MS's lead, or it could be that longer time subscribers to PSN+ realize that a $60 a year feature that has saved them hundreds of dollars in content is not always going to have a blockbuster, and may have some repeat games for those that may have missed them the first time around.
I would at least expect something like Basement Crawl
Wow, your complaining over a free game, really??? Fine then don't download it!!!
oh I definitely wont, because I already got it for free on ps3
You're complaining about free content. The main object of PS Plus isn't about giving free games. It's sorta of an added bonus
Who says we'll even be getting this as the free game in the west? Just because they're doing this off in China or whatever doesn't mean it's 100% what we're getting too. Anyway, not everyone had a PS3 3 years ago when Dean Nation was given out and many PS4 owners never had a PS3 at all to have checked it out. It's a great game regardless.
"Who says we'll even be getting this as the free game in the west? " Logic? US Plus games: Resogun, Contrast, Don't Starve, Outlast, March ??? EU Plus games: Resogun, Contrast, Don't Starve, Outlast, Dead Nation* Asia Plus games: Resogun, Contast, Don't Starve, Outlast, Dead Nation Japan Plus games: Resogun, Contrast (system just released) It would be the first game to break the chain and most signs point to it happening. While things could change, it's a very safe bet. * Rumored, though this rumor came out of nowhere and it seems hard to believe someone would guess that Dead Nation for the PS4 was not only real, but would also nail it being a Plus title and the month without insider information. The only reason I could see this not happening is a delay or something along those lines.
When did Eu announce it's getting Dead Nation for its free PS4 download?
I want a first person option.
Eh, Dead Nation was really fun on local co-op, it's a great arcade game to play with friends, but I've already been there—done that, so I'm going to pass on this months offering...
Awesome game if you didnt play it on PS3
For anyone thinking about passing on playing this game because it's "old", remember that you can still get trophies - even if you already have the trophies for the PS3 version.
I hope this isn't the same game given to me on the PS3 as part of the "Welcome Back" giveaway for the PSN hack/shutdown. That would suck.
After all this time they could have made a sequel. *sigh*
gotta love finnish devs :3
