Here’s how to get Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty’s bonus content for free

Tuesday, 15th July 2014 06:24 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will include a couple of pieces of new content, which will only be available if you – when you – for those who – look, it’s all a bit complicated. You’d better sit down.

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”. Players will be charged with sneaking the Abe’s Exoddus character out of the factory. This extra sequence has a dedicated PSN leaderboard, and will be available “shortly” after release.

Meanwhile, Scrub Abe is a DLC costume for Abe modelled after regular factory workers. It will be available on release day.

How you get your hands on this content at no cost varies depending on region:

  • North America: exclusive to pre-orders
  • Europe and the UK: exclusive to PS Plus subscribers who purchase the core game within two weeks of release

North American pre-orders are pre-load enabled, by the way.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty arrives in PS4 on July 22 in North American and July 23 in Europe and beyond. It supports cross-buy with Vita and PS3 (this applies to the bonus content, too) and will set you back $30/£18/€21.

If in doubt, you can double check any of these details on PlayStation Blog if you’re in North America or the Oddworld blog for those in the UK or Europe.

    Poop. I’ll never understand platform exclusivity, because all it seems to say is that your product is too weak and inferior to sell on its own merits without such trickery. The humble personal computer continues to trundle on without ever even thinking about platform exclusivity.

    Oh well, I’ll be able to pick this up after launch, no doubt. Especially the bonus content itself, which is more interesting to me than the skin.

    That said, thanks for the heads up, Bren!

    It’s not platform exclusive. There is a PC and Xbox One build coming out. They’ve just been working on the PS4 version first.

    @TheWulf Personal computers do/can have a platform exclusivity; the platforms are Windows, Mac, and Linux. I do love the fact that many new games are getting Linux support now though (versus the last 10 years).

    @2 I can see there being a PC version, but are you sure it’s coming to XB1? The dev is not exactly all about Microsoft.

    @bradk825 They’ve said as much on their Facebook page. It was an official announcement that it’s coming to Xbox One. They say they are platform agnostic, which they have shown themselves to be, but being a small developer things are somewhat slow.

    They also list it on their own website too: http://www.oddworld.com/oddworldgames/new-n-tasty/

    I don’t mind waiting for good content though, the Oddworld games are by far some of my favourite games ever, and I think the way for New ‘n’ Tasty has been more than worth it.
