Microids has announced Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition. The new Oddworld version includes all previous updates and gameplay enhancements to the base game. There will be more changes and fixes. Oddworld Inhabitants confirmed that those who have Oddworld will get the Enhanced Edition update free of charge. For new buyers, the base game will also be updated to the Enhanced Edition at the various stores.

Details on the gameplay enhancements are scarce at the moment but will include “improved gameplay mechanics and motion code.” While we thought the game was stormier than it should be at launch with a plethora of bugs, the developer has been working hard to fix many of the issues. Version 1. 13 released in June and featured a long list of fixes. These fixes can be viewed below to get an idea of the changes made since Oddworld_ Soulstorm ‘s original release.
