Oddworld: Soulstorm developers "confirm" Xbox release

Oddworld: Soulstorm developers confirm Xbox release


After Oddworld: Soulstorm was released in April for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners, it now looks like Xbox players will soon be able to look forward to Abe's crazy attempt at liberation. After some rumors, the official developer account has now also posted a video in which the word "Xbox" is not explicitly mentioned, but which still seems to speak a clear language in its symbolism.

Von previous rumors and a dubious video

Already in June there were some rumors that Oddworld: Soulstorm is making its way to the Xbox. At that time, a Greek dealer listed the title for the Xbox, but gave the release date July, which obviously turned out not to be true.

Just a few days later, Oddworld: Soulstorm (buy now) was rated for Microsoft's platform by the ESRB, the Entertainment Software Rating Board. While the trader may still be an oversight, the ESRB will not be rating any stocks for the wrong platforms for fun.

Anyway, there is now new light in the dark rumor mill. The official Oddworld account posted a very clear video on Twitter. There you can see the protagonist Abe looking at an object wrapped in parchment that has a clear green sheen. He is accompanied by the words "They've always known you would come", ie "They always knew that you would come."

Also the subtitle of the video, "Abe looks good in green" "Abe looks good in green" speaks a clear language, after all, green is the primary color of the Xbox logo. The word "Xbox" itself was not mentioned and there is a slim chance that fans are only trying to mislead and the announcement means something completely different. Regardless of that, there was no release date, so Xbox players will have to be patient a little longer.

Yes, it's true – Oddworld: Soulstorm is coming to Xbox consoles. 

In a brief, blink-and-you'll-miss-it 25 second teaser, Abe unwraps a glowing secret. We've seen this particular footage before in other trailers from the fan-favorite platformer, only this time, the glow is not golden, but instead gives off a familiar green glow while the voiceover says: 'they've always known you would come'.

Though the reveal wasn't exactly what you'd call explicit – and developer Oddworld Inhabitants has yet to date when the game will arrive on Xbox, or add the Xbox logo it Soulstorm's official website – the news finally confirms the game's move to Xbox, rumors of which began to swirl back in June when a listing for Oddworld: Soulstorm popped up on the USA's Entertainment Software Rating Board's database.

As we reported at the time, no one knew Oddworld: Soulstorm was coming to Microsoft consoles at all – let alone so soon – until an eagle-eyed fan spotted the listing on the USA's Entertainment Software Rating Board. It further confirmed a listing that had also popped up on Brazil's advisory rating board, too, specifying a release on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One, even though it was released as a Sony console-exclusive in April 2021 as a freebie for PS Plus subscribers. 

Described as a '2.9D' platformer, Oddworld: Soulstorm is a reboot of 1998's Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. Last month, series creator Lorne Lanning announced he was 'proud' of the title after successive updates had seen the game be 'refined on all platforms'.

'We made a commitment to our community on [release day] April 6 that we would continue working on Oddworld: Soulstorm,' Lanning said at the time. 'In return, they have been amazing. They have provided us with valuable feedback that helped us find, recreate, and fix issues/squash bugs. We have released seven updates since our initial release.'

Here are all the new games of 2021 (and beyond).
