Nah I read it says enhanced visuals as well.

"Exclusively available on PS4, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition features numerous enhancements, making it the best version yet. You can now play in full 1080p HD, with improved textures, rendering, and effects — Dead Nation has never looked better. We also improved the controls, adding in a quick weapon select so your favorite zombie decimator is never out of reach."

I still have this on my ps3 when they gave it away.. never did play it. Apparently its a lot better in co-op. Pretty poor pickings for a ps4 offer though rehashing old free ps3 games. What happened to Drive club? that cant be too far away..its all gone strangely quiet

I really liked this game. Twinstick shooter with an actual trigger. Looked nice. But made the mistake of playing on hard and it bettered me. Got REALLY fucking hard. Think i'll either play on normal this time or go co-op.

EDIT : driveclub is going to be the show piece for sony's VR headset....BELIEVE!

I'm guessing they just increased resolution, number of things on screen, and increased AA. It looks pretty much like higher resolution, smoother visuals to me. If nothing else, it's not a huge difference. The original was already a pretty sharp looking game IMO.

The video is captured at 1080P/60 fps, but is the real thing running at 1080P/60 fps?

I have read that is running 1080P/30 fps.

The game looks cool and I have never played it in PS3, I think I will enjoy it in my PS4 even at 30 fps, but it is a pitty if it is not running at 60 fps.

That and it seems like they added SSAO to it as well, looks like that anyways. Looks nice to say the least anyways.

Such a good game, I still think it's the best classic representation of hordes of zombies down a dark street and this is just a top-down shooter. If this generation can replicate the chaos in maybe a L4D type game, day one for me.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (2 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (2 Hours ago)
