A complete remake of 1997’s Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee, it more than proved that Lorne Lanning’s original vision stood the test of time. Now, the studio is hard at work on its next title, Oddworld: Soulstorm.

Soulstorm made a welcome splash at GDC 2019 during Unity’s Keynote Presentation, unveiling over a minute’s worth of impressive new footage in the company’s engine. It follows two Mudokons as they’re speeding toward Soulstorm Brewery, pursued by a pair of flying, machine-gun toting Sligs.

What is Oddworld: Soulstorm?

Much like New ‘N’ Tasty before it, Soulstorm is once again a remake of an existing title. Taking inspiration from Oddworld Abe’s Exoddus, the 1998 sequel, Soulstorm plans to do far more than retread the same levels and characters. By drip feeding fans with new screenshots and info via its official website, the Soulstorm hype train has well and truly left the station.

Oddworld: Soulstorm release date – when is it coming out?

Oddworld Inhabitants is yet to confirm a release window. Platforms aren’t announced either, although we’re hoping it comes to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Oddworld: Soulstorm gameplay – how does it play?

We’ve yet to see any gameplay footage of Soulstorm in action, nor has Oddworld Inhabitants detailed how it will expand upon the New ‘N’ Tasty formula. The usual mixture of platforming, stealth and enemy manipulation will likely return, albeit with a darker, more sinister twist. All things considered, the core mechanics have remained untouched since Oddworld’s inception 20 years ago.

With any luck, Soulstorm will breath new life into its archaic roots with something fresh, exciting and unpredictable.
