Oxenfree has crossed over with OlliOlli World and, to be honest, we’re a bit disappointed.
We’re not disappointed the crossover has happened – we called it back in 2021, though neither Roll7 or Night School Studio have sent us a massive royalty check. Alex has taken a break from exploring Oxenfree‘s haunted island and, instead, is now a guest skater in 2D skate sim OlliOlli World’s Void Riders DLC. In other words, you won’t need to purchase Alex, or Oxenfree, but you do need to have bought both the original Olli Olli World and its Void Riders DLC.
But given how excellent OlliOlli World is, you’ve nothing to lose by picking it and Void Riders up. Aside from adding Alex, the Void Riders also introduces all sorts of alien meddling, letting players roam around remixed, warped version of the original parks. Accessing Alex’s level is as simple as entering the code MV32FR33 from the portal menu.
What we are disappointed about, however, is that while Roll 7, Night School and publisher Private Divison are rightly proud of this crossover, they’ve stopped short of slapping “OlliOlli Oxenfree” all over the place. Seriously, it’s right there – how can you not exploit this pairing’s pun potential?
This crossover is particularly timely since Oxenfree has a sequel waiting in the wings, Oxenfree II: Lost Signals, arriving some time later this year. There’s no concrete release date but given how much we enjoyed the original, including its otherworldly, brain-mangling storyline, we can wait.
The Oxenfree crossover should be available right now to those who’ve purchased OlliOlli World and OlliOlli World’s Void Riders DLC. The game and its DLC are available on Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
