During E3 2019, we had the chance to try out Oddworld: Soulstorm. We liked what we played so much that we gave it our Biggest Surprise of E3 award.
All the gameplay mechanics come together extremely well in Oddworld: Soulstorm, and the experience is extremely varied. Puzzles often involve pressing down levers to open a path, but there are so many variables involved, as platforming or enemy patrols, that you never feel you're doing the same thing over and over. Influencing the experience considerably is the Quarma mechanics, which dictate Abe's morality throughout the game. Saving Mudokons increases positive Quarma, while killing enemies and losing Mudokons increases negative Quarma. This mechanic influences the game considerably in many ways, but the team hasn't been particularly explicit on how it does so in the long term.
Oddworld: Soulstorm launches on PC, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4 during Spring 2021.
