Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc are delighted to announce that Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will launch on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program on March 27, 2015.
Marking the first outing of an Oddworld game on Xbox since Stranger’s Wrath in 2005, New ‘n’ Tasty is a ground-up remake of the much-loved original Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee, developed by Just Add Water (Development) Ltd.
A cinematic platform adventure, New ‘n’ Tasty tells the tale of Abe, a hapless Mudokon who learns that his fellow meat factory co-workers are to be the main ingredients in the company’s next line of tasty treats.
Abe must escape RuptureFarms and beyond, liberating as many of his fellow workers as he can. Along the way, he’ll learn the secrets of his civilization and journey across perilous lands filled with dangerous creatures and lethal traps before returning to the sinister meat factory to put right the injustices faced by his long suffering species.
Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty will be available to download from the Xbox One Games Store on March 27 for $19.99, €19.99 and £14.99.
