Abe will be back

Abe will be back

While we are still eagerly waiting for the release of the Vita version of Stranger's Wrath, a first screenshot of Oddworld Abe's Odyssey HD just appeared on the net out of the blue. No official date, nor do we have any idea what systems will welcome this HD remake, but it is something to look forward to without a doubt.

Dunno, guys, I'll pick it up for sure.

Apparently this is a propper HD remake. All assets are being re-done. But the gameplay will be retained. Basically like strangers wrath, which was also amazing. Day 1.

Strangers Wrath HD was one of the best HD rereleases, and judging from this shot so will this, and the game will be as awesome as it was when it came out for the first time !!

Another game that will be as good, if not better than the original, as it was back then. LORNE LANNING is involved dumbasses, this isn't a Silent Hill HD Collection. This is going to be so sweet.
I'd say Microsoft (and owners of just 360s too) are kinda pissed off now that they fucked up relations with JAW.

AFAIK this will be all redone in 3D graphic.
After all, I would rather get a new game than a remake.

yup, redone to meet with current gen visuals, but retaining the gameplay of the first PSone classics, which is all i want really. i certainly wouldnt want them to mess with the mechanics, because if anything, that's the one thing that still holds up so well today.

nice, liked this game on pc years ago, good gameplay and athmosphere imo :)

Sounds like it could be fun after all since it's done properly and not the MGS/God of War way.

Why not make a sequel? Remakes are already fed up to everyone.

Because to make a sequel you'll need money, so they're trying to get some momentum in the series again, like they did in early 2000's. So, JAW is updating Munch, already updated Stranger's and are remaking, in the true sense of the word, Abe's Oddysee, with a similar game and same mechanics, but at the same time, a different game from what you got in 1998.

About the game

    Sdarts @digi_matrix: QB's physics simulation is great, but the stop, forward and rewind time mechanic is nothing new, it's basically a real time "Photo mode" like the ones in Infamous:SS and DA:I. (1 Hour ago)
