Oddworld Inhabitants today unveiled Oddworld: Soulstorm, a new title set in the Oddworld universe that is due for release in the second half of 2017.
A follow-up to last year’s New ‘n’ Tasty, the publisher shared a handful of story details in tandem with the announcement, indicating that Soulstorm will in fact be a reimagining of Oddworld: Exoddus.
According to the press release, Abe’s next adventure “directly follows on from the overthrow of RuptureFarms and the liberation of his blighted workmates.”
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.
The only piece of media accompanying the announcement is the Oddworld: Soulstorm teaser image above. That distorted still of Abe’s new design will slowly begin to reveal itself as more people follow the official Twitter and Facebook social channels.
