Just Add Water (JAW) announced the return of the critically-acclaimed Oddworld series - with an enhanced remake of the award-winning Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath coming to PlayStation®3 next Easter.
Originally released in 2005, first- and third-person action-adventure Stranger's Wrath marks the multi-million-selling series' first appearance on a PlayStation console since 1998's Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. The game will be made available as a digital download via PlayStation Network.
JAW has worked closely with Oddworld founders Lorne Lanning and Sherry McKenna to ensure the remake is faithful to the original moolah-chasing epic, while offering a raft of enhancements, including: 720p visuals; much more detail in the characters; normal mapping and self-shadowing; re-mastered dialogue, support for PlayStation Move; and additional bonus material still to be revealed.
In Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, players step into the role of the Stranger, a rough and tumble bounty hunter who tracks down outlaws for moolah. Using a special weapons system that gives a whole new meaning to "live" ammo, players encounter deviant species and hostile challenges along the way.
The 2005 original has a Metacritic rating of 88, was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Animation at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' Interactive Achievement Awards, and received numerous awards from the gaming press.
