Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty leaderboard wipe

PlayStation leaderboards for New 'n' Tasty will be wiped this weekend. Here's why it's happening and how you can get your times back online.

Ahoy there, Inhabitants.

This weekend, we will be wiping the PlayStation leaderboards for Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. If you have any times on them, we’re sorry to say they will be deleted from Sony’s servers and you will have to upload your level completion times again to have them publicly viewable on the leaderboards.

If you are not interested in leaderboard times, this will not affect you in any way, and you can continue to enjoy playing New ‘n’ Tasty with no interruptions.

Why are we wiping the leaderboards?

The leaderboards are currently populated by very high numbers of ‘zero times’ that are troublesome to New ‘n’ Tasty players with an interest in speedrunning the game. They are not hacked entries, but are the result of a bug that we have subsequently fixed. Anyone whose PlayStation account has uploaded a zero time is unable to upload any genuine times, and it would be unfair of us to leave them excluded from uploading fair leaderboard entries.

How can I re-upload my times?

New ‘n’ Tasty will only send times to the leaderboards if a new time is faster than an existing time stored in your save data. So there are two ways to re-upload times to the leaderboards:

  • Beat your existing, locally-stored times (these can be viewed on the Chapter Select menu).
  • Delete your save data and play New ‘n’ Tasty again.

To everyone affected by the wipe, we’re very sorry that we have to delete your hard-earned times, but we believe that everyone should be able to take part in the leaderboards, and unfortunately this is the only way we can return this functionality to those affected by ‘zero times’.

We are still hard at work developing Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita (both of which will be free on release to all owners of New ‘n’ Tasty on PS4 through Cross-Buy), Wii U, Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux, and we will announce release dates as soon as they’re set.
