When we reviewed Dead Nation back in December, one of the persistent niggles that kept coming up in the comment section was the game’s lack of voice chat support. How can you expect to formulate a focused zombie cleansing run without the ability to orchestrate your moves with a fellow undead hater?
Finnish developer Housemarque did assure us they were listening (over the white noise of a felled telecommunications network no doubt), and now we know exactly when coms channels will be open. But that’s not all. Speaking over on the PS blog, Ilari Kuittinen, CEO and Co Founder of Housemarque, states:
We’re excited to report that our upcoming patch is only days away (coming Monday, March 7) and will provide players with not only online Co-op Voice Chat, but also Checkpoint saves, the ability to copy saves, and some further surprises for all the Dead Nation players out there!
There’s also a nifty (dead) developer diary.
