Oddworld: Soulstorm picks up from Abe’s
genesis and directly follows on from the overthrow of

surprises in store this time around we don’t think anybody’s

definitely got twice the twisted flavor."
Soulstorm, the highly
volatile new game from Oddworld, is slated to explode in the latter half of 2017.
