Oddworld: Soulstorm follows on from the events of Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty. The reimagining of Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus is considered to be the true second title in the quintology and has a story that diverges away from the original title. The new gameplay features include 2.9D environments, and the ability to loot items from bodies and the environment. The things Abe finds can be used to craft items for himself or his 1000 fellow Mudokans that he’ll rescue throughout the game, something he’ll need to do successfully if players are to complete the game’s trophy list. The game will also offer help through Activity Cards according to Gematsu. This will include hints, tips, and walkthrough videos for “the specific area of the game they are playing”. As usual, this will require a PlayStation Plus membership to use. The PS5 version will also offer improved graphics and 3D audio. The former will include a new camera system “capable of reflecting the scale of Abe against his epic journey“. DualSense Controller features include the ability to feel Abe’s heartbeat when he’s in “high alert and suspenseful” situations thanks to haptic feedback. Adaptive triggers will offer more resistance as Abe struggles.
