Developer Oddworld Inhabitants has released new footage for their upcoming return to the Oddworld series in Oddworld: Soulstorm, as well as dropped a few more details regarding the game’s free PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 upgrade path.
Per Gematsu, the team has revealed gameplay footage regarding Soulstorm‘s environments, as well as brief introductions to the game’s crafting, follower management and stealth mechanics. In addition, due to the concerns surrounding the PS+ offer of the game for PS5 owners, as opposed to the PS4 version of the game, Oddworld Inhabitants had this to say:
“The digital version of the game releases April 6 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. The PlayStation 5 digital version will be free for PlayStation 5 PlayStation Plus members during the month of April. If you purchase the PlayStation 4 version, we are offering a free path to the PlayStation 5 version. Because the game is free for PlayStation 5 PlayStation Plus owners in April, we will not be offering a free backward path from PlayStation 5 to PlayStation 4. The physical retail versions of the game will be in stores on July 6. If you purchase the physical retail PlayStation 4 version, you will get the PlayStation 5 digital version at no cost.”
Oddworld: Soulstorm will also be available April 6 on PC via the Epic Games Store. The Xbox One version will be arriving at a later date.
