May 13, 2019 – Oddworld Inhabitants Inc. proudly unveil the first look at gameplay from Oddworld: Soulstorm, the second game in a planned Oddworld pentalogy. It is the first true follow-up to the critically acclaimed, best-selling Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, which was a ground-up remake of Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee. With more than 15M games sold, and dating back to the original PlayStation, Oddworld has always been developed with fans in mind.
Oddworld: Soulstorm picks up from where New ‘n’ Tasty ended. Abe has defeated Mollusk the Glukkon, his former boss and RuptureFarms’ meanest inhabitant, overthrown RuptureFarms and liberated workmates.
Now, Abe finds himself – along with 300 newly emancipated Mudokons – without food, water or a place to call home. Stranded alone in the desert, they find solace in a strange new brew – a delicious drink that has insidious ramifications for their newfound freedom.
Oddworld: Soulstorm will continue to chew up the themes of environmentalism, capitalism, consumerism and addiction that critics and fans found so engaging in the “AAA Indie” release of Oddworld’s last pensive platformer, New ’n’ Tasty.
Oddworld: Soulstorm will launch on PC & consoles in 2020.
