We’re excited to announce that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is now available to pre-purchase on Steam.

With the release date just around the corner (25th of February) we’ve put together a post that outlines the requirements, features and changes relevant to the Steam (Windows, Mac and Linux) launch.


Pre-purchase details:

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is now available for pre-purchase release. The pre-purchase price is just $20 / £15 / €20, and with a 10% discount on pre-purchases. Pre-purchasing will also grant upon the game’s release access to the expansive Alf’s Escape DLC and the Scrub Abe costume DLC as part of the bundle at no extra cost.

Both sets of DLC will be available on Steam for everyone else on release.



Game release:

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will release on Steam (with other retailers to be announced) on the 25th of February, 2015. It will launch for Windows, Mac and Linux at the same time, with one purchase unlocking all Steam versions.

Language support:

The game carries English voice acting only.


Steam version specific features:

The Steam version of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty supports keyboard and mouse – and Xbox 360 controllers throughout the menus and in-game, and there’s also fully configurable keyboard binding.

The game supports frame rates of up to 60 frames per second and resolution up to 4K (both spec dependent) with a number of graphics sliders for settings like texture detail, anti-aliasing and so on.

There’s also Steam cloud synchronisation for game saves, Steam leaderboards and a set of Steam trading cards.


Other tweaks and improvements:

Listening to feedback from last year’s PlayStation 4 version, the Steam version of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty features the same ‘old school’ controls that were introduced a few months after release, which more closely resemble the controls found in the original Abe’s Oddysee (with respect to walk/run and lateral jumping).

We’ve also removed the cross-game promotional banners, added the ability to skip all cut-scenes without already having watched them and addressed a number of bugs (including indestructible mines in one part of the game and a somewhat unreliable elevator towards the end) and, of course, included all the incremental benefits brought by the updates to the PS4 version like adjusted level layouts and audio design fixes.
