In case there was ANY doubt in your mind...

This is most definitely looking like a zombie (or people turning into something bad) game.  Now I believe there is an over-saturation of zombie titles but that doesn't mean the game won't be fun. In fact I've been quite fond of most zombie games that have come out in recent memory so I'm looking forward to seeing what this new title is all about.  
 
Also there is an added edition to the ant trailer they put out. If you have seen it before skip to 15 seconds and its all new from there

 You can slightly make out the end of the caption that reads "Dead or Infected

I for one love zombie games. Don't have a PS3 though, but hope you guys get a good game!

Some people have actually concluded that it's not a zombie game, that it's some sort of plague spreading, and we get to see the end of the world. Like some sort of I Am Alive/Fallout thing.
 
Personally, I'm cool either way. I love me some zombies, but this plague angle is sounding pretty awesome too. It's not long until we find out anyway.

A survival zombie game would be really neat, as would a survival plague game where you're trying to survive while a plague slowly ravages the world would also be neat and different. It would be cool if it was really steadily placed as well.

At the start of plague games and movies you see the initial panic and then martial law briefly before it becomes a post-apocalyptic setting, I think if the game was set entirely in that initial build up, where you and your family are worried about the new plague or whatever and then things slowly become more and more chaotic as the problem escalates, and then your fighting to leave a city (trying to get evacuated) and then when the army starts killing people you're trying to avoid their patrols and get to a refugee camp as well as competing with other survivors and infected (you could put in some real harrowing moral choices here) and it isn't until the very end of the game when everything has collapsed and it's post-apocalyptic.

So pretty much a cross between Contagion and The Road I guess.

@Sackmanjones: Link doesn't work. It redirects to some bullshit about Prague in what looks like a really crappy student film.

@KingWilly: Works fine for me.

This pic just appeared on the site. Reminds me of the "Fox" engine for some reason

@FilipHolm Wouldn't it be great if this is Kojima's new thing that he talked about last year?

@KingWilly: Seems to be working fine for most people. You can just go to the main site to check it out

@Sackmanjones: Dead or infected does not mean zombie. It means that there are millions who are dead, or infected with this fungal disease.

I'm getting a 28 Days Later vibe from this, which is a good thing.

Zombies or not, I'm interested.

Now that just makes me feel all tingly. I just hope they can deliver something good instead of just an idea. ಠ_ಠ

I'd just like to know what exactly this game is, and who the developer is.

Well, it might be, but these guys have pretty good track record.

I really hope it's just like a society collapse thing and the main focus of the story is just you trying to survive and dealing with other survivors.

And zombies/infected people are like a tangent that only show up in super special cases.

Who am I kidding though, nom nom brains....right internet?

#22 Posted by Funkydupe (3316 posts) -

The game appears to be about a post-apocalyptic world, possibly caused by a parasite that infects peoples brains. = Hells yes.

Yes. I have yet to be disappointed by ND. I loved the hell out of the crash series (when they did them), Own the Jak games (and will most likely buy the HD release) and Uncharted.... well, yeah, Uncharted. I will look though all the "zombie doubt" and give these guys a chance to show me what they have. Cuz honestly, they never fail to deliver.

If the only human characters in the game are the dad and daughter, it might be pretty cool. And they should both die in the end.

Troy Baker, who is also playing Booker DeWitt is the male lead. Have we finally met a match for Nolan North?

You shut your dirty mouth. NO ONE can beat out the great Nolan North.

Looks closely related to I Am Legend. Let's see where they go with the theme...

My thoughts exactly

It doesn't need to be black and white, just because they may include "infected" monsters, doesn't means it's automatically a zombie game
 
I think they can strike a good balance between, exploration/survival, human enemies and short sequences of infected zombie-shoom encounters.
