The next addition to the beloved Oddworld franchise is nearly here, and it’s ready to utilise the full power of the PS5. Oddworld: Soulstorm just got a brand new trailer, and it’s looking better than we could have hoped for!
In case you haven’t yet seen it, the trailer welcomes back Molluck, a very familiar face for those who’ve played Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty. Check it out below!
The upcoming title is looking stunning on PS5, and it seems the next-gen technology isn’t just skin deep – though it’s definitely looking like an absolute powerhouse from what we’ve seen!
Developer Oddworld Inhabitants explains about the title’s style and visuals – and how they’ll benefit the player on next-gen consoles: “The game’s 2.9D environments transport action platforming to the next generation by giving players more freedom to explore Abe’s world which includes new environments such as Gorge, Sorrow Valley and Feeco Depot.
“The power behind the PlayStation 5 (PS5) System’s technical achievements bring out Soulstorm’s stunning graphic fidelity. PS5’s mind-blowing 3D audio puts you in the middle of the action, as if you are right next to Abe helping him and his fellow Mudokons escape.”
The power of the PS5 isn’t just confined to the box itself though, as the console’s DualSense controller aims to take gaming to the next level with its haptic technology.
How will that work in Oddworld: Soulstorm? Well, it’ll allow 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 fire power. As Abe struggles, the ingenious adaptive triggers offer resistance, making the struggle feel more real.” Colour me excited!
If you’re not planning on picking up a PS5 quite yet, don’t worry, as the game will also be coming to PlayStation 4 and PC. There’s no concrete release date as of yet, but it’s still (hopefully) aiming for a 2020 release.
The PS5 will roll out in select markets including North America and Japan on November 12, followed by Europe and additional regions on November 19.
