Along with clever nods to L4D and Dead Rising.
Housemarque may have risen to the big leagues with its PS4 launch title Resogun, which is known for being better than easily all of the PS4 exclusives released till date, but it has its roots firmly planted in undead slaughtering. It will be releasing Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition for the PS4 as part of PlayStation Plus’s Instant Game Collection in March, and now the Trophy list for the game has emerged.
You can check out the list in full here, but you’ll be able to pick up Trophies for killing zombies, headshots and setting zombies on fire. Collecting all the Trophies earns you the “Romero Would be Proud” trophy, as an ode to zombie film-making legend George Romero.
There’s also a clever little reference to Left 4 Dead and Dead Rising with the “Genocidiary” Trophy, which you earn from killing 53,597 Zombies. Why such an arbitrary number? It started with Dead Rising’s Genocider Achievement, which could be earned by killing 53,594 zombies. Valve liked the Dead Rising series and included an ode to the same with the Genocidest Achievement for Left4Dead, which you earn from killing 53,595 zombies. Dead Rising 2 further topped this with an Achievement for killing 53,596 zombies and earning the Genocide Harder accolade.
You can see where this is going. Will you be picking up Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition? Let us know below.
