  • seven additional months of polish
  • improved Slig and follower AI (more intelligent and responsive)

Brand New Classic Oddworld Content: 

  • A separate challenge game mode accessed via the main menu once you complete the game.
  • The events in the new content take place prior to the events in Soulstorm. 
  • XBOX ONLY: 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.
  • PS/PC ONLY:  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.
