Abe’s exodus is going to get a lot darker and a lot more sinister in the newest addition to the Oddworld franchise: Oddworld: Soulstorm.
Announced via a pretty bizarre webpage, Oddworld: Soulstorm looks to be a continuation of Abe’s story following the reboot of Abe’s Odyssey, “New n’ Tasty,” being co-developed by Oddworld’s own internal teams in California and the UK; and in conjunction with Frima Studio in Québec.
According to series creator Lorne Lanningthe, “There was a deeper, darker, and more sinister story that we never got to tell. Soulstorm gives us the opportunity to flesh out more meat on the bones of an original spine, but re-tell the fable from a very different angle.”
Executive producer, Bennie Terry says, “We think Oddworld fans are really going to dig what we’re brewing, and we’ve got some great surprises in store this time around we don’t think anybody’s going to predict,” he added. “I’ve been tasting it, and it’s definitely got twice the twisted flavor.”
Oddworld: Soulstorm currently has no projected release date, however the site currently has a Twitter campaign that, with enough followers, will show a detailed model of the new Abe. Hopefully, more details will come down the pipe soon.
