Frogmind announced today that BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition will come out the last week of May. The platform-specific release dates are: May 26 on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in North America, and May 27, respectively, in Europe; May 26 for Windows, Mac and Linux through Steam; and May 29 in North America and Europe for Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program. The exact release date of the game on Wii U™, planned for the end of June, will be announced at a later date.
BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition is based on Frogmind’s multi-award-winning game, BADLAND, a console-quality game for tablets with over 25 million players worldwide. BADLAND is a side-scrolling action adventure with innovative physics-based gameplay and stunning atmospheric graphics and audio. Players control a flying creature called Clony and try to survive an astonishing number of imaginative traps, puzzles and obstacles through a beautiful forest.
BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition builds on the original game’s strengths with completely redesigned controls, perfected for consoles and PC. The redesigned gameplay expands that of the original by offering full left/right/up/down control over the game’s characters. The Steam version supports up-to-four-player multiplayer gaming from a single keyboard (old-school style), gamepad controllers, and any combination of controllers and keyboard.
The levels of BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition have been rebuilt to suit the new control mechanics. The new edition features over 15 hours and 100 levels of single-player story content, 100 co-op levels, and 27 multiplayer deathmatch stages for up-to-four-person local multiplayer awesomeness.
“BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition looks stunning in Full-HD with all its visual enhancements, and the multiplayer gameplay has been praised wherever we have shown it,” said Johannes Vuorinen, co-creator of BADLAND. “The co-op mode works well even for players of different skill levels – as long as one player survives, he’ll be able to quickly resurrect the others back into the game. BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition delivers one of the best local multiplayer experiences on these new platforms.”
Get ready to save the Clones starting May 26 when BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition comes out with launch week sales that take the price to just under $10 from the base price of $11.99 on consoles and $9.99 on Steam. BADLAND: Game of the Year Edition features cross-buy functionality on PlayStation® platforms, offering players the game on all three available systems with a single purchase.
