The Soulstorm will soon be upon us again. The Enhanced Edition of Oddworld: Soulstorm is scheduled to arrive at the end of the month.
Enhanced and improved
Yes, Oddworld: Soulstorm is still a pretty new game. But here’s the thing, that original release had some issues. And Oddworld Inhabitants being the company that it is, had to see to that. That’s the origin, in a nutshell, of Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition.
The new edition of the game will include a bunch of new additions too, aside from the set of ‘fixes’ though. And it’s actually pretty beefy stuff that you’ll be able to access after beating the main game.
- Xbox players will go hands-on with Vykkers Labs, a throwback to classic Oddworld 2.5D gameplay featuring short puzzle-filled levels. Earn leaderboard prestige for speed runs or zero-death performances. For those who don’t recall, Vykkers Labs is a large airborne lab used for pharmaceutical testing on animals and run by the sadistic Vykkers.
- PlayStation and Epic Games Store players will experience Toby’s Escape. Like Vykkers, it is a throwback to classic Oddworld gaming short puzzle-filled levels to master. If you have played Soulstorm, you’ll know Toby from the train, but how did Toby escape RuptureFarms and become the train’s conductor…find out in Toby’s Escape.
But what if you have Soulstorm already? Well then it’s even better news, because you get the Enhanced Edition for free. And if you beat it already (on the PS4/5 or PC), you’ll presumably be able to dive right into that new content.
As for Xbox gamers, the title is up for pre-order now in both standard and Collector’s forms. All of it arrives at retail on November 30th.
