Oddworld Inhabitants communicates new information about Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee - New 'n' Tasty. On the menu: Pricing, Cross Buy and Release Date Update. All this in the press release available after the jump, along with some new images.
Hi Inhabitants! As you’ll have no doubt gathered from our recent gameplay trailer we here at Oddworld (and Just Add Water) have been working every hour we can to ensure that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is the game we want it to be, with the best possible gameplay, amazing visuals and innovative sound design.
And we’re very, very nearly there.
How close? Really close.
In the last few weeks we’ve evolved the way the creatures of New ‘n’ Tasty behave and interact – it’s now an altogether smarter, more exciting experience; we’ve tweaked and refined the level design to make the whole game flow better than it ever has and we’ve been pushing the cut-scenes to ensure that our rich storytelling remains very much at the forefront of it all.
We know you, our biggest fans, are eager to play the game, and we’re doubly eager to share it with you – but we just need a few more weeks to get it exactly where we want it to be. So, in terms of a release date – we’re going to be able to announce when the game will be available to buy before E3 starts on the 9th of June. The game won’t be out before E3 – sorry – but that’s our promise in terms of letting you know when it will be.
We are especially excited to confirm the price of the game – Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 for $29.99 in the US, €24.99 in Europe and – approximately – £19.99 in the UK.
We’re also delighted to reveal that the game will be Cross Buy on PlayStation platforms, meaning that if you buy New ‘n’ Tasty from the PlayStation Store on one platform, you’ll also get the other two versions included. We’re also busily implementing Cross Save, so you’ll be able to take your progress from the PS3 and PS4 versions on the road (and vice versa) if you also have a Vita!
News on other platforms to follow in due course.
We’ll have much more information for you on Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty to come over the next few weeks. In the meantime, ensure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest for the latest updates.
The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (58 minutes ago)
I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (59 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (1 Hour ago)
I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (4 Hours ago)
People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (6 Hours ago)
I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (7 Hours ago)
That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (7 Hours ago)
