Johannesburg - Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition is a top-down shoot ‘em up style game, set in an apocalyptic zombie infested world. It comes from the hugely talented developer Housemarque, famous for their Super Stardust titles, and more recently the critically acclaimed RESOGUN.

Dead Nation features a full campaign mode which can be played solo or in co-op. That is both online co-op and the now somewhat elusive local “coach” co-op.

Exclusively on PS4, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition features numerous enhancements, making it the best version of the game yet.

You can now play in full 1080p HD, with improved textures, rendering and effects, ensuring the game has never looked sharper.

Also, the controls are improved adding in a quick weapon select, so your favourite zombie decimator is never out of reach.

The ‘Road to Devastation’ expansion is now included in the main game, giving you two extra game modes – Arcade and Endless, allowing you to test yourself against ever increasing odds.

And with support for the official PlayStation companion app, all you completionists out there now have a second screen to monitor your game stats as you play.
