Due out on April 6.

Oddworld: Soulstorm

Oddworld Inhabitants has released a new set of “Quick Look” gameplay videos for Oddworld: Soulstorm, as well as detailed the game’s free PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 upgrade path, PC minimum and recommended requirements, and PlayStation 5 Game Help functionality.

Get the details below.

Free PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 Upgrade

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.

PC Specifications

Minimum requirements are as follows: Windows 7 64 Bit, Intel Quad Core 1.7Ghz, nVidia GTX 670 or equivalent, 8GB RAM.

Recommended requirements are Windows 10 64 Bit, Intel Quad Core 2.3Ghz, nVidia GTX 970 or equivalent, 16GB RAM.

PlayStation 5 Game Help

On PlayStation 5, Oddworld: Soulstorm players can get hints, tips, and walkthrough videos, without needing to leave the game. These hints can be accessed for the specific area of the game they are playing (using PlayStation 5’s Activity Cards), so they don’t have to spend time searching the internet or risk seeing spoilers. (Active PlayStation Plus membership required.)

Oddworld: Soulstorm is due out digitally for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store on April 6. PlayStation Plus members will also be able to download the PlayStation 5 version for free throughout the month of April. A physical edition will launch for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on July 6.
