Next week sees the long-awaited patch to Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD go live on PSN. The first time you run the game after the patch launches, you’ll automatically download and be able to enjoy all the latest features and fixes, including:

3DTV support

Scour the wilds, ruins and hideouts for scumbag Outlaws with the latest stereoscopic broadcasts from the Mongo River. Oddworld has never had so much D!

PlayStation Move support

Immerse yourself in the action by pointing and firing from your very own crossbow. (Note: Your PlayStation Move controller is unlikely to resemble a crossbow.)

Video recording and uploading

Record your victories, failures and candid moments straight to your PlayStation 3, and upload them directly to your YouTube account.

Brightness & Gamma controls

No need to visit Doc for a new pair of eye-spectacles, now you can change the visibility of the very world around you with our brand new sliders.

Audio fixes

Tired of lazy Townsfolk cutting themselves off mid-sentence? Fed up with soft-spoken Live Ammo? Is the soundtrack to your adventure jolted, often absent? Never fear! Our audio fixes fix your audio!

Increased crosshair visibility

9 out of 10 bounty hunters say they prefer our newer, opaquer crosshair. “It’s so much easier to see!” said excited Corn Jaws of New Yolk City.

Fixed Quicksaves and Autosaves

Before, you could only load full saves from the Load Game screen. But now you can revert back to your most recent AutoSave and QuickSave for added convenience.

Extra subtitles

The accessibility of Western Mudos has taken a step up with the introduction of additional gameplay-relevant subtitling in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

Performance Improvements

Ask at your local General Store or Black Market for all available improvements to your experience of life.

The patch launches at the very start of 27th June in the UK (1 am for most of Europe, 7 pm on the 26th Eastern Daylight Time, 4 pm on the 26th Pacific Daylight Time). In the meantime, enjoy the patch’s official trailer, now available to download from the PlayStation Store.

    As a French player, I really want to thank you for adding extra subtitles. The Patch is still downloading right now, but I appreciate the move you made ;)

    Hey Alf, i was wondering where the patch is. iI have been checking since yesterday, and every time iI open the game, it just goes into the game. iI even have auto updates enabled, and when iI came in this morning, my log showed a few games being updated, and Strangers Wrath was not one of them. iI live in the US, and hope this patch did not get pushed back because of the huge ME3 patch that wads released the samre day. This game is simply gorgeous, and iI cannot wait to see it in 3D!!!

      For some reason the patch came out in the US later than it should have, but it is definitely out now.

    Hey I think the update was supposed to come in now unless I’m being a dolt and it’s the wrong time. Is there a specific way to get the update or do you get it automatically when you’re signed into to PSN and you start up Stranger’s Wrath?

  • While I’m waiting for the patch to go live (*looks at watch* Hurry it up, Sony…I’ve been waiting for that clakkerz cutoff fix for months!) my curiosity over the Microsoft situation is getting the best of me. What could’ve possibly made them so unwilling to work with the very people they once worked with to get console exclusives out of?

    And…er…Does this effect future updates/releases/etc? It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard of bad experiences causing a dev to swear off one or more of ‘The Big 3′….

      It’s not my place to speculate on what’s going on inside Microsoft, but we haven’t sworn off Xbox 360.

    Hey Alf, I was wondering if there is any chance of multiplayer support for Munch’s Oddysee HD..? This is something my sister and I were always hoping to be able to do, and I think it would be amazing to have either split-screen or online co-op, or both!

    If not, can you explain why it would be too difficult to do so?

      Unfortunately not, the game’s engine was never built with anything other than single player in mind.

      We’re working on both Stranger’s Wrath HD and Munch’s Oddysee HD for PC right now. I can’t give you an exact date because they haven’t gone through Steam’s QA process. As soon as there is a date, we’ll announce it here on Oddworld.com.
