Nightdive’s Next Updated Retro Video Game Is Not One You’d Expect

Fresh from bringing again classics akin to Star Wars: Dark Forces, Turok 3, and Quake 2, Nightdive Studios has introduced its subsequent restoration — and it’s a recreation no-one anticipated.

You’d be forgiven for having not heard of PO’ed. It was developed and revealed by Any Channel Inc. initially for the 3DO in 1995, with a PlayStation port launched in 1996 courtesy of defunct writer Accolade. In the sport you play a chef who tries to flee an alien world. It’s very mid-90s online game!

Here’s the official blurb, courtesy of Nightdive:

Inspired by generational powerhouses Doom and Quake, the unique PO’ed pushed first-person motion video games to new heights with its over-the-top, action-packed, fast-paced, explosive, ridiculous, bloody, smelly, delicious, adjective-filled, ultra-violent 3D gameplay. You play as a chef who crashes on an alien planet infested with extraterrestrial foes, utilizing a menu of “family” weapons to ship a dish greatest served chilly (by dish, I imply revenge, simply in case you have been confused).

PO’ed: Definitive Edition is an up to date model of the 1995 first-person house shooter, and it’s coming quickly to PC and consoles. The Definitive Edition options up to date visuals, antialiasing, elevated frame-rate, redefined controls, and as much as 4K 144 FPS efficiency, Nightdive mentioned.

Here’s the checklist of PO’ed: Definitive Edition key options, from Nightdive:

  • A plate filled with quality-of-life options to boost the gameplay and repair bugs current within the authentic recreation (which will be toggled off)
  • Wet your whistle with widescreen help for the HUD and different on-screen graphics
  • A brand new scrumptious problem mode has been added for hardcore gamers
  • 15 appetizing achievements
  • A splash of localization help for English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish
  • Total freedom! Cruise on foot or fly along with your jetpack by way of 25 wild 3D environments

PO’ed: Definitive Edition releases for Windows PC through Steam and GOG, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X and S, and Nintendo Switch in “the very close to future.”
