Dead Nation Trailer Stopping Zombies Dead in Their Tracks

August 17, 2010Written by Kishen Patel

From the creators of the 2007 PlayStation Network hit, Super Stardust HD, comes what appears to be another blockbuster downloadable title, exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on the PlayStation Store. Published by Sony Computer Entertainment America, Dead Nation was announced in 2009 at last year’s gamescom in Cologne, Germany. With the next gamescom underway, it looks like SCEA and Housemarque are treating us with its announcement’s anniversary media.

An all-new trailer was revealed to the masses to prepare gamers for its launch, but when we say prepare, we mean prepare for, not just the release, but the zombie apocalypse it is bringing with it. But don’t just take our word for it, check it out in the trailer below:

If you are like us, the first thought that comes to mind is “do we need another zombie game?” But after watching the trailer, and given Housemarque’s track record of revitalizing a saturated genre/mechanic, like they did with Super Stardust HD during a time of nothing but twin-stick shooters, we have high hopes for this one (besides, this game has the most zombies so why not pick this one?).
