Dead Nation PS4 "Broadcast+" Makes Streaming More Fun

Sony has already revealed that it'll be free in March, so you may as well grab it.

Bear in mind you're not simply getting an upgraded version of the acclaimed Dead Nation. No, Dead Nation: Apocalypse Edition for the PlayStation 4 will boast a very cool new feature, as described over at the PlayStation Blog.

It's called "Broadcast+" and it's basically streaming with an added purpose. Those who view your stream can actually affect the game through a voting mechanic. During particular segments, viewers watching on PS4 or on Twitch's website can either aid survivors with stuff like additional ammo, or amp up the difficulty by spawning more zombies. How cool is that? This means the experience could be endlessly dynamic, as you never know what viewers will do.

Also, don't forget that the Road of Devastation expansion with its supplemental Arcade and Endless game modes will be included as well. If you want to get all competitive, check out the new Challenge system that lets players set scores and dare their friends to match 'em. Oh yeah, and full 1080p and local/online co-op.

You get all this for free if you're a PlayStation Plus member; if not, you'll have to fork over $14.99.

So they are releasing DN for PS4 with some cool stuff and yet there is no news on Vita when it was announced long ago! As a Vita-only owner, I am very dissapointed...

Actually the developer stated that the Vita version is on the way. No timeframe or anything but that it is not dead as some have speculated. I'm sure it will pop up in a month or so.

Actually this isn't as cool as it sounds. Technically it's pretty cool. However the latest need 4 speed has a similar deal where the developers created an app to get other vehicles and such. Anyways through the app you can help out or disrupt other players. Let me tell you that it's not fun when randomly someone comes in an reduces your cars health near the end of a race. It may be dynamic but it's completely disruptive. I would rather not have help at all then give someone the choice because people would rather piss you off.

It was poorly implemented in N4SR. It did help me get through some of the final races in the campaign though.

Give JackieBoy a break. lol.. I think he meant to reply to his own comment.

I think that is a PlayStation Now feature. I may be wrong.
