Oddworld Inhabitants just announced on their site that they are working on a new game set to release in the second half of 2017. Oddworld: Soulstorm is a direct follow-up to 2014’s Oddworld: New and Tasty an would appear to be a remake of Abe’s Exodus which firs released in 1998.
Having defeated Molluck The Glukkon, his former boss and RuptureFarms’ meanest inhabitant, Abe soon 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.
There aren’t many details on gameplay but the game’s site touts “a fresh narrative” along with “intelligent new mechanics, twisted new devices enabling highly explosive deviousness.”
“There was a deeper, darker, and more sinister story that we never got to tell,” explains series creator, Lorne Lanning. “Soulstorm gives us the opportunity to flesh out more meat on the bones of an original spine, but re-tell the fable from a very different angle.”
There are also no details yet as to which platforms Oddworld: Soulstorm will release on but be sure to check the Oddworld: Soulstorm site for more details.
