North American pre-order customers will receive an alternate costume, Scrub Abe, that consists of a factory cleaner's garb. That pre-order bonus will be available on launch day, while Alf's Escape, a new area of RuptureFarms, will be released shortly after launch. Alf's Escape offers some challenging puzzles that will "ensure a fresh challenge for even the most seasoned Oddworld fans," according to Oddworld Inhabitants, along with some dialogue recorded just for that level.
Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty will cost $29.99 in North America, and Oddworld Inhabitants has reduced the price in the U.K. and Europe to bring it in line with the North American price: The game will cost £17.99 in the U.K. and €20.99 in Europe, the company announced today. Customers in those regions will be able to get the Scrub Abe costume and Alf's Escape mission as long as they're PlayStation Plus subscribers and buy the game within two weeks of its release date.
Developed by Just Add Water, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty will be available July 22 in North America and July 23 in the U.K. and Europe on PlayStation 4. Oddworld Inhabitants is planning to allow pre-order customers to download the game "a day or two early" and start playing at midnight on their respective launch days.
The company is supporting Sony's cross-buy program, so buying New 'n' Tasty on PS4 will also unlock PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita copies of the game and bonus DLC once those versions are released. Oddworld Inhabitants said today that it is "still trying to launch the PS3 and Vita versions as soon as possible after the PS4 version." New 'n' Tasty is also in development on Linux, Mac, Wii U, Windows PC and Xbox One; the publisher noted that the two aforementioned add-ons will be available on other platforms.
