Playable locations

The nature of Soulstorm is a reimagining of the game it’s based on will shine through in a variety of ways, including the sites you’ll visit throughout the game. Many locations from Abe’s Exoddus will, of course, return in the game, but they’ll be heavily reimagined with new looks and aesthetics, according to the developers. You should also expect older areas to be extended, as well as entirely new areas and places that were not present in Abe’s Exoddus.

Create a story based on the old one

Story reimagined Oddworld, of course, is a retelling of the tale recounted in Abe’s Exodus from 1998. However, though it was fresh and flavorful, it was a fairly faithful remake of Abe’s Odyssey. Abe’s Exodus was intended to be a radical reinvention all those years ago, but Soulstorm is being touted as a much more radical reinvention. Despite the fact that it will largely follow the same story beats. It will hugely expand on them, with new scenarios, rewritten scenes and plotlines, new twists on old beats, and a larger number of locations.

Remodeling with more details

Soulstorm has also been redesigned from the ground up and will have a new look that is distinct from predecessors. Especially in light of the developer’s plans for different key characters and species to appear in the game. While fans of the series can recognize more than a few visual characteristics, Soulstorm has been entirely reimagined. This will make them immediately identifiable, and extra details and flourishes will presumably help them stand out even more, putting them in line with the series’ recent visual overhaul.

Graphic almost the same 3D game

Soulstorm will be a side-scrolling platformer, similar to Tasty and Abe’s Exodus. But that doesn’t rule out the possibility of a 2D game. Despite design as a 2.9D experience by the developer’s Oddworld residents. This means that, despite the fact that it is a side-scrolling game, the surroundings are. The game will still have 3D depth and various layers for players to traverse and explore, and the Z-axis will play a role in everything from traps and dangers to the gameplay.

About Quarma System

Oddworld fans will be familiar with the Quarma system, and it will be a key mechanic in Soulstorm. Your actions in the game will affect a worldwide Quarma meter, which will influence how the story progresses and concludes. Whether it’s saving Mudokons or letting them die, killing sligs or just knocking them out, or killing an enemy in self-defense versus killing an enemy who wasn’t posing much of a threat to you, players will be forced to consider their options.

3D Audio on PS5

3D audio for instance is going to work thanks to the ps5 tempest engine. The specifics of exactly what shape this will take in the game still not have information. But according to creative director Lorne Lanning. It quote puts you in the middle of the action as if you’re right next to Abe helping him and his fellow Mudokon escape. For those who owning PS5, the 3D audio will be support through Pulse 3D Wireless Headset.

Support Dualsense controller

Well, Oddworld Soulstorm will also feature support for the Dualsense’s adaptive triggers and haptic feedback. When utilized properly adaptive triggers can contribute significantly to the game’s immersion factor and think. We won’t truly know how well Soulstorm uses this feature. The developers are making interesting promises says Lanning quote “the dual sense controller allows you to experience the palpitations of Abe’s heart as he tries to save his followers in the face of overwhelming forces armed with superior firepower as Abe struggles the ingenious adaptive triggers offer resistance making the struggle feel more real.”
