Guide Abe the Unlikely Hero as the Beacon of Hope in Oddworld: Soulstorm

Oddworld: Soulstorm

Oddworld Inhabitants has just revealed a new title in the series that is making its way to the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4. Oddworld: Soulstorm puts you in the shoes of Abe, who is the unlikely hero but the only beacon of hope in the story.

If you have played any of the previous Oddworld titles, you will be quite familiar with the fun and challenging aspects of this action-adventure platform game. Like its previous titles, Oddworld: Soulstorm comes with a rich storyline in a dark humor setting, showcasing the ironies that exist in the human condition.

In a blog post by Lorne Lanning, the co-found and creative director at Oddworld Inhabitants, Lanning talks about the PS5 console and its graphics fidelity allowing them to create the game as it was shown in the trailer.

The power of PlayStation 5 allows us to push Oddworld: Soulstorm toward a cinematic visual and storytelling leap over our previous titles. Soulstorm’s scope and scale are larger than we have tackled before.  We plan to use PS5’s stunning graphic fidelity, mind-blowing 3D audio, and the DualSense Controller, to enhance our storytelling and artistic abilities to bring you closer to the game and create to create an even deeper emotional Oddworld experience for you to enjoy.

So what is new in the game? You start the story where you last left off in Oddworld: New ‘N’ Tasty. Our protagonist, Abe has undergone an unwanted transformation from being a clueless Mudokon cog. To start a revolution, you have to begin from somewhere unexpected and build onwards from there. The game will begin by helping understand how the power of many can solve problems rather than just one individual.

The gameplay will involve you looting from trash cans, pickpocketing, and search through lockers for items to craft into weapons and tools. Weapons will help you save fellow Mudokons, and also to unlock the dark secrets behind Brew. Oddworld: Soulstorm will give the player plenty of choices to replay with different approaches, whether you prefer the classic Abe style sneaking and problem-solving, or using scavenge for what you need to create and hand off to your followers that you saved along the way.
