Back in April, Oddworld Inhabitants published the remake of PlayStation platformer Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. Oddworld: Soulstorm serves as a direct sequel to Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty!, tasking protagonist Abe with rescuing his fellow Mudokons from the clutches of the nefarious Glukkons.

French game publisher Microids has announced a free update for PlayStation consoles, due out November 30th. Oddworld: Soulstorm's planned gameplay enhancements will also be available for Xbox consoles, as well as Windows via the Epic Games Store. Microids previously launched the compilation title Oddworld Collection for Nintendo Switch, bundling Oddworld series entries New ‘n’ Tasty, Munch’s Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath.

Preorders for the physical release of the Oddworld: Soulstorm Collector Edition and Day One Edition come with the digital soundtrack album and digital art book. Music for the remake is by Josh Gabriel.

From the product page:
Evolving the platforming genre by adding RPG-lite elements with player agency to play as you like, whether aggressively or passively.

Pickpocket your enemies, loot lockers, sift through trash cans, and find hidden areas to acquire resources. Exchange resources at vending machines to get products that give you more agency in how you chose to conquer the game’s many challenges. Acquire recipes to craft tools and weapons to use against opposing forces or solve problems. Arm your followers and watch the revolution begin.

This isn’t a traditional 2D side scrolling platformer. Soulstorm is a 2.9D action-adventure platformer with 15 hours of gameplay, and dozens more for achievement hunters and perfectionists. Epic environments with massive scale to explore by going into the world, rather than being limited to the traditional side scrolling platformer sense.
