HotD: Overkill PS3 extras revealed

Exclusive features and new screens shown.

Sega has detailed all the exclusive additions coming to the impending PlayStation 3 version of Wii rail shooter House of the Dead: Overkill.

Highlights include two additional levels, new weapons, game modes and some hitherto unseen enemy types.

Here's the full list, as posted on the PlayStation Blog:

  • PlayStation Move and Sharp Shooter compatible
  • OVERKILL fully remastered – available in high definition graphics and stereoscopic 3D for the first time ever
  • Extended with two additional levels not in the original game
  • Exclusive crossbow weapon
  • New baby mutant type
  • New Hardcore mode – mutants can only be killed with headshots
  • New Classic mode – play through the entire game using only the AMS Magnum
  • Exclusive missing reel – an extended boss fight with “Mother” in “OVERKILL”, the game’s final level
  • Online leaderboards to track high scores and stats
  • Collectibles to grab throughout all levels to unlock bonus materials; comic pages, music tracks, 3D models and 2D artwork
  • New PlayStation trophies to unlock
  • Improved boss fights in all levels
  • New and improved cut-scenes using motion capture

You can also wrap your eyes around a few new screenshots and the predictably excellent box art below.

Sega's eye-wateringly profane Wii original launched back in 2007, to measured Eurogamer acclaim. Give our House of the Dead: Overkill review a read for more details.

The PlayStation 3 take arrives in stores on 28th October.
