The PSOne Classics Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus will both be available on the PlayStation Store for only $9.99 each starting Thursday, October 22. Finally, gamers who never got the chance to meet and play as Abe when he first came out on the PSone system, will now get that chance to meet the guy who graced many magazine covers and proved the unlikely hero that captured people’s hearts.
For those unfamiliar with the game, you play as Abe, a floor-waxer first class for RuptureFarms. Abe overhears plans by his boss, Molluck the Glukkon, to turn Abe and his fellow Mudokons into Tasty Treats as part of a last-ditch effort to rescue Molluck’s failing meat-packing empire. During his escape from RuptureFarms, Abe received a vision from the mysterious Big Face, showing Abe that he must not only rescue his fellow Mudokons, but also protect all of Oddworld’s creatures from the predatory Magog Cartel.
