New 'n' Tasty's UK/European QuikBuy Details
Following on from our news last week about Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty’s “QuikBuy” bonuses in the US and Canada, we’re delighted to announce how the rest of the world will be able to get their paws on the extra Alf’s Escape mission and the Scrub Abe costume.
Firstly however, we would like to confirm today the pricing for the game’s UK and European release.
To ensure as fair a price as possible with regards to the base US price of $29.99, we’ve opted to set the UK price at £17.99 and the European price at €20.99. That’s down from £19.99 and €24.99.
We’d also like to reconfirm that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be released in the SCEE regions (Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia, India, Australia and New Zealand) on July 23rd as a digital download from the PSN Store. It’s Cross Buy – so grabbing the game early on PS4 will also mean you get the bonuses when the PS3 and PS Vita versions release.
Alf’s Escape – Abe ain’t the only one fleeing the farm!
Witness the humble beginnings of that fez-donning, tea-lovin’ Mudokon first seen in Abe’s Exoddus! Use Abe’s haphazard skills to sneak Alf outta the factory and to freedom! Watch out for that meat grinder!
“Alf’s Escape” is an all-new area of RuptureFarms containing brand new puzzles and fiendish hazards that’ll ensure a fresh challenge for even the most seasoned Oddworld fans, as well as specially recorded dialogue!
It’ll also feature its own PSN leaderboard, alongside leaderboards from all the other levels in the game, so you can compete with everyone else to see who can rescue Alf in record time!
Anyone in the SCEE regions with a PlayStation Plus subscription will be able to play Alf’s Escape when it launches shortly after release, for no extra charge, as long as the Alf Escape mission is grabbed within two weeks of its release.
Scrub Abe – Dress to possess!
Now you can really go to work on those Sligs! Get Abe kitted out in a traditional factory cleaner’s outfit (complete with striped loincloth and scalp cap) so they can really look the part on that grimy factory floor.
Anyone in the SCEE regions with a PlayStation Plus subscription that buys Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty within two weeks of the PS4 release date, July 23rd, will get Scrub Abe for no extra cost as soon as the game is purchased.
We can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on New ‘n’ Tasty – releasing in just over a week on PlayStation 4 (with other formats to follow as soon as possible), Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a ground-up remake of the game that started it all, Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee.
The two items of DLC will be yours to keep once the game is purchased, even if your PlayStation Plus subscription runs out.
