New Oddworld: Soulstorm footage teases platforming gameplay

Oddworld is an acclaimed series that focuses on the adventures of a bunch of colorful characters in a dystopian world. The franchise spans platformers and third-person action games, but we haven't seen a new title for quite a few years. Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! was a reboot of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, so it wasn't the new adventure many gamers were expecting.

A few years ago, Oddworld Inhabitants announced that the team was working on a game called "Oddworld: Soulstorm." While it's still not a brand-new experience, it's a "reimagining" of Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. Not much was revealed about the project then, but during GDC 2019, the developer released a cinematic teaser for the game. Today, we got a glimpse at the gameplay.

Gameplay seems to be similar to Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, with a mix of platforming, stealth, and rescuing your friends. The visuals also seem to be quite similar to what Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty gave us a few years ago. Is this what you wanted from Oddworld: Soulstorm? Let us know.

If you can't wait for Oddworld: Soulstorm, you can play Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty on Xbox One right now. It's available for $20 through the Microsoft Store.
