Hydrophobia Pure
Dark Energy Digital’s episodic action title caused a sizable divide when it hit Xbox LIVE Arcade earlier this year, with plenty of outlets calling it broken while others called it inventive, and plenty more fell somewhere in-between the extremes.

I was anticipating some changes for the next installment, but today the studio announced an overhaul for the first episode based on critical and community feedback. Launching tomorrow, Hydrophobia Pure is a free update for those that already own the game, and a price reduced title for those that haven’t taken the plunge – the game will move from 1200 Microsoft points to 800.

The studio also released a developer diary showcasing changes made, which you can catch after the break – you can also catch a rather large list of retooled features at the official site here.


  1. Glad to hear they’ve done something to fix complaints. Also glad to see the price drop… even though I still won’t pay for “episodic” games. Hopefully they’ll be able to “finish” the game installments and actually release the full thing on disc.
