Nightdive Studios announces PO’ed: Definitive Edition

Nightdive Studios, known for remastering classics like Shadow Man and the Turok series, is back with a 90s cult classic shooter, PO’ed: Definitive Edition. The announcement made on April Fools’ Day might have raised some eyebrows due to its timing but seems genuine given the project’s development stage.

This promises a nostalgic blast from the past for fans. The game will be available on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch soon. Excited about Nightdive’s take on PO’ed?

Nightdive’s track record is stellar in fairness.

I’ve still got my PS1 copy of PO’ed and it hasn’t aged well at all. I think the world was still clamouring for new and inventive Doom-clones at the time that people were willing to forgive clunky gameplay and unbalanced weapons, but this remaster will do it a whole load of favours.

Disruptor is another mediocre game that springs to mind, but was well received because it was the best-of-the-rest in what we now know to be first person shooters. That would be a cool remaster too - perhaps even Lifeforce Tenka, or even Sentient if they were feeling brave.

This game is already out. Why did we need an update on an announcement for a game that’s already released?
