Oddworld: Soulstorm Gets New Details With A Full-Length Trailer
Yesterday, during the EGX 2017 event, Lorne Lanning devoted almost 40 minutes at the presentation to showcase all the novelties that will be introduced in Oddworld: Soulstorm, the new chapter of the Oddworld series, focused on the adventures of Mudokon.
The title will resume from where Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty ended, or after the destruction of the RuptureFarms and the elimination of its CEO Molluck. With Abe officially kicking off the Mudokon revolt, a new enemy of the species makes its appearance, a new corrupt organization of Oddworld’s world, the Soulstorm Brewery.
Even this company will exploit the poor Mudokon sadly and atrociously: their key product being Soulstorm Brew.
In the trailer, we see how the Mudokons are the victims of testing leading to their death, and the same drink – which is quite addictive – is made with the tears and bones of the like of Abe. As confirmed by Lanning himself, dark environments will dominate this new game, which will also offer improved graphics that will represent the characters in the best way possible by giving them more personality.
Also new to the gameplay mechanics: Abe will have an inventory with which he can craft useful items during the adventure. In Soulstorm, there will be 301 Mudokons to save, including those already released by RuptureFarms in Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. Each of these will be visible at the bottom of the UI, giving players the ability to see their activities or whether they are in danger.
At the bottom of the news, we offer you the whole Lanning interview, while you can watch the Soulstorm brewery in the trailer at 16.25 minutes on YouTube.
Oddworld: Soulstorm is expected to release in 2018 on platforms not yet specified.
