Oddworld: Soulstorm targets a 2020 release, first in-engine cinematic released

At GDC 2019, Oddworld Inhabitants released an in-engine video, giving gamers a glimpse of a cinematic while at the same time showing off the rendering techniques it is using in this new Oddworld title.

Oddworld: Soulstorm picks up from Abe’s genesis and directly follows on from the overthrow of RuptureFarms and the liberation of his blighted workmates.

Oddworld: Soulstorm will continue to chew up the themes of environmentalism, capitalism, consumerism and addiction that critics and fans found so engaging in release of Oddworld’s last pensive platformer, New ’n’ Tasty.

The game is powered by the Unity Engine and targets a 2020 release.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
