Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty NA Pre-Order Bonuses

Plus instructions on how to get the content in other regions

North American players can already pre-order Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty before its release on Playstation 4 on July 22nd. The Playstation 3 and Vita versions will follow shortly afterwards but, with CrossBuy enabled for the title, players will be able to get both of these versions for FREE when they are eventually released.

Despite this, most players usually look for an incentive to pre-order a title. Publisher Oddworld Inhabitants has outlined two bonuses for players who pre-order the game in the US and Canada. The first bonus is a never-before-seen mission called "Alf's Escape". The mission will be released as paid DLC for everybody after the game is released, but players who pre-order the title will get the content for FREE.

Witness the humble beginnings of that fez-donning, tea-lovin’ Mudokon first seen in Abe’s Exoddus! Use Abe’s haphazard skills to sneak Alf outta the factory and to freedom! Watch out for that meat grinder!

“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!

It’ll also feature its own PSN leaderboard, alongside leaderboards from all the other levels in the game, so you can compete with everyone else to see who can rescue Alf in record time!The second bonus is the "Scrub Abe" costume. Unlike the above mission, this costume will remain exclusive to pre-order customers and will be available on the game's release date.

Now you can really go to work on those Sligs! Get Abe kitted out in a traditional factory cleaner’s outfit (complete with striped loincloth and scalp cap) so they can really look the part on that grimy factory floor.

North American players can pre-order the title from here for $29.99. Not only will you get the exclusive content (which also carries over to the Playstation 3 and Vita), Oddworld Inhabitants plans to have the game available for players to pre-load "a day or two" prior to the game's release before it is unlocked at midnight on July 22nd.

European gamers may be wondering what they can do to get this content. Well, Playstation Plus members will be able to grab both bonuses for FREE as long as they purchase the Playstation 4 version of the game within two weeks of its release on July 23rd. The "Scrub Abe" costume will be available immediately, whereas "Alf's Escape" will be released shortly after the game itself. As before, these bonuses will also transfer to the Playstation 3 and Vita versions of the title when they are eventually released, as the CrossBuy option is also valid in SCEE areas. Despite needing a Playstation Plus membership to get the bonuses, they will be yours to keep forever even if your Playstation Plus membership expires.

The game is planned for release in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Russia, India, Australia and New Zealand. To bring the European price in line with that in North America, the game will now cost £17.99 / €20.99, a reduction from the game's original price point of £19.99 / €24.99.
