Incredible news, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is preparing its HD return on Playstation 3 next Easter. If you played the game in 2005 you will perfectly understand why this is such a big deal, if not, you will have no excuse for not experiencing this unfairly shunned title.
OTLEY, WEST YORKSHIRE, UK – 3rd September, 2010 – Just Add Water (JAW) is thrilled to announce the return of the critically-acclaimed Oddworld series - with an enhanced remake of the award-winning Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath coming to PlayStation®3 next Easter.
Originally released in 2005, first- and third-person action-adventure Stranger’s Wrath marks the multi-million-selling series’ first appearance on a PlayStation® console since 1998’s Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. The game will be made available as a digital download via PlayStation® Network.
Stewart Gilray, Managing Director of JAW, said: “Since word got out that we’ve been working with Oddworld Inhabitants there have been many rumours circulating about what we’re working on. Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is the first project in what we believe will be a long and fruitful relationship. Having the chance to update this great title and release it on PS3 is just a brilliant opportunity, not least for us, but for the fans too.”
JAW has worked closely with Oddworld founders Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna to ensure the remake is faithful to the original moolah-chasing epic, while offering a raft of enhancements, including: stunning 720p visuals; much more detail in the characters; normal mapping and self-shadowing; re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation®Move; and additional bonus material still to be revealed.
In Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, players step into the role of the Stranger, a rough and tumble bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah. Using a special weapons system that gives a whole new meaning to "live" ammo, players encounter deviant species and hostile challenges along the way.
The 2005 original has a Metacritic rating of 88, was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Animation at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' Interactive Achievement Awards, and received numerous awards from the gaming press.

@KORNdog: I hated Syndicate's combat system. Unity's was so sluggish as well. I hope its fluid like AC3 and 4 but more deep and challenging (1 Hour ago)
It's performance related. Also, people underestimate the point of correct calibration. Having the 3d just off slightly for your eyes can cause bad eye strain, thus leading to nausea. (3 Hours ago)
I think motion sickness can be alleviated in future to the point where it won't be that much of a deal breaker. I noticed playing on Pro is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard PS4. (3 Hours ago)
And that's entirely possible. I can imagine RE8 being that way. Having to physically aim down iron sights to get a headshot on a zom would be immense, but scary as fuck. (3 Hours ago)
