New Octodad Levels Hit PS4 on October 14th, For Free

Phil Tibitoski's Avatar Posted by President & Co-Founder, Young Horses

It’s finally time… time for two brand spakin’ new levels of Octodad: Dadliest Catch; the Shorts! After the great response Octodad received from y’all, we wanted to give back a little in thanks for your support. Everyone who currently owns Octodad: Dadliest Catch as well as anyone who grabs a copy in the future will get these levels FREE through the new v1.03 patch. The patch will download its way onto your PS4 on Octodad 14th.

Octodad Shorts

After completing the story of Octodad: Dadliest Catch you might be hungry for more. Maybe you’re curious how Octodad and Scarlet got along after their fateful meeting aboard the sailing ship “Cod of War?” Perhaps you’d like to know what shenanigans Stacy and Tommy get up to with their lavish amounts of free time? You can explore both of these questions in the Octodad Shorts “Dad Romance” and “Medical Mess!”

Even if you don’t own Octodad yet, you’ll still get these levels for free when you purchase the game! We’re also putting the game on sale for 1 week (October 14th to October 21st) at 50% off.

Be sure to pop back here once you’ve played the Shorts and let us know what you think!

<3, Young Horses

See, now this is how you treat your customers. Sony/Evolution should be paying attention.

Any new trophies?

No new trophies this time around. Sorry!

No incentive for me to play through them without trophies so I’ll just be skipping them. I bought the game, regretted it, but still played it and got all the trophies because I’m “that guy”.

(And yes, I know that sounds rude of me. Just being honest)

I was all set to ask for a nice PS+ discount, but then I saw you’ll be offering this for 50% off! Very nice, I have been waiting for a discount on this one. I’m in.

Nice! I’m really glad they expand on the story instead of just being completely random. Really looking forward to checking these out. Thanks! Also, what #2 said, any new trophies for this?

I love Octodad. New levels, and free at that. Now, this is how you do DLC. Other publishers need to take notes.

Oh wait, DriveClub is already getting free DLC in the future. Free tracks, a free car every month until June.


If you’re going to complain, at least have a valid complaint. Whining that Sony should “pay attention” when they’re already doing the same (and have done the same with other titles like Killzone Shadow Fall) is just hilarious.

Anyway, glad to have more to play. Been waiting!

Man, you know with all of the Destiny & Driveclub drama I’d totally forgot about wanting to get this game! I’m gonna have to right a wrong by picking it up tonight off the PSN store! :)

Thanks Phil for posting about more Octodad fun and also everyone at Young Horses for bringing Octodad to PlayStation! This coming Tuesday is going to be great and having additional content for free is a BIG plus in my book! I’m glad to have been a one day purchaser for Octodad: Dadliest Catch :)

Awesome! I love Octodad! <3

btw. The main song of this game it's so funny and silly that it is stuck in my head still. Even though I haven't played recently.

Suhweeeet! I loved playing Octodad. Such a unique and good-feeling game that I feel is one of the highlights of the PS4 (even though it wasn’t developed for it). Come October 14th, I’ve got a good thing goooinnnn!

I was hoping this game would be on sale soon. Been wanting to try it and I don’t recall seeing a demo.

I don’t understand what this game is all about. Just looks like a normal guy just trying to live his normal life.

DarthSmurfX said:

Sweet! I can’t wait for the new levels. A couple extra trophies would have been nice, but I had a blast playing this game when I first bought it and my only complaint was… I want more. So thanks for the extra levels, YH!

This is awesome! Thanks so much! I had a blast playing this game….plus a bit of irritation lol. I can’t wait to jump back in and laugh my ass off with these new shorts. Thanks again!

I got screwed out of Octodad for free when I bought my PS4 could months ago from Gamestop, kept getting a run around and never got my code. My son was very disappointed.

Glad the game is getting supported with content.
