Zombie Shooter Dead Nation Launches On PS Vita This Week

By   /   Apr 15, 2014

Isometric zombie shooter Dead Nation will launch on Playstation Vita this week for both Europe and North America. This is the third time that the game will drop on the Playstation Network.

Originally, the action title released for Playstation 3 in the holiday period of 2010. It was developed by HouseMarque, which later went on to develop the Playstation 4 arcade hit Resogun.

It wasn’t exactly the most critically acclaimed shooter out there, but its simple zombie blasting mechanisms were entertaining enough. A campaign can be done with either Jack McReady or Scarlett Blake and it gets even better when done in cooperative mode.

Its dark environments need to be illuminated with a flashlight, which increases the isolation factor in the desolate locations of a burning apocalypse.

Dead Nation was also one of the games handed out for free as an apology for the infamous Playstation Network outage of April 2011. It was joined by games like LittleBigPlanet and inFamous.

Later, in September 2011, Dead Nation received an expansion called Road of Devastation as downloadable content (DLC). Recently, the shooter was also released for Playstation 4.

For the PS Vita version, Dead Nation will cost $7.99, while its DLC costs $3.99. Europeans pay €7.99 or €3.99. Those who have bought either one for Playstation 3, however, can download the title to their handheld for free through Sony’s cross-buy option.

Both the PS4 and PS Vita ports of Dead Nation were made by Climax Studios. They’re responsible for offbeat titles like Sudeki on the original Xbox, but also Silent Hill: Origins on PSP and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories on Nintendo Wii.
