  • 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 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.
