If you own a PC or PlayStation 3 and you’re familiar with the Hydrophobia game, which was originally released as an XBLA exclusive, then I think we have news that could be of interest to you. Dark Energy Digital has just announced that the Hydrophobia game is heading to both Steam and PSN.
However, according to a recent playstationlifestyle.net article written by Cameron Teague, the upcoming release — which is under the name Hydrophobia Prophecy — is not really a port as such, but more of a reinvention. The game features new levels, new voice acting and upgraded graphics.
Hydrophobia Prophecy will also come with new gameplay mechanics, a reworked back-story and even a new ending. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the original, Hydrophobia is a survival-adventure game that is set in the 21st century and sees players taking on the role of an engineer.
Dark Energy Digital’s Pete Jones said that the company could have just ported the Hydrophobia Pure game over to Steam and PSN, but they chose to go much further than that instead and create a bigger and better experience. The game is due to hit Steam on May 9th, and PSN after that.
