Oddworld Inhabitants has announced that Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition – the new and improved version of its somewhat-troubled newest franchise entry – is coming to Xbox for the first time on November 30, as well as the existing PlayStation and Epic Games Store platforms as a free update.
Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition brings with it “dramatically improved gameplay mechanics and motion code, audio balance improvements, seven additional months of polish, improved Slig and follower AI (more intelligent and responsive), as well as all previously released updates and brand-new content.”
The new content included will be different depending on which platform you’re on, with Oddworld Inhabitants detailing the two variations:
“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 with 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.”
