Oddworld: Soulstorm is an action-adventure game complete with crafting, scavenging, platforming, and sneaking. It is a sequel to 2014's Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty! and a re-imagining of 1998's Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, the game is a 2.5D side-scrolling platform game. Protagonist Abe returns to the game and his goal is to save his fellow mudokons from slave labor. The game features substantially revised gameplay mechanics incorporating gameplay elements from both Abe's Exoddus and Munch's Oddysee.
Oddworld: Soulstorm is set hours following the events of Oddworld: New 'n Tasty. In the previous installment, the RuptureFarms janitor Mudokon named Abe accidentally stumbled across a scheme engineered by his CEO, the Glukkon Mullock, to turn all Mudokon workforce into an edible product to compensate for the sales' decline of other meat-based treats, provoked by the dwindling of available animals for processing (one of which already went extinct).

Plot: While the freed Mudokons from RuptureFarms celebrate their release, Abe consults with a shaman who urges him to cut away his lip-stitches to "find his voice", but Abe refuses to do so as he recalls the stitches are the last memory of his mother, Sam. At the same time, the Monsaic Lines is bombarded by the surviving Sligs from RuptureFarms, led by a vengeful Mullock who was vilified by the Magog Cartel as having destroyed his own factory and killed his workforce for the insurance money. Abe and the surviving Mudokons led by Alf run away to safety amidst the flames, made worse by the caches of SoulStorm brew lying around. As Abe escapes, he comes across a Mudokon escapee slowly dying from a gunshot wound, who urges Abe to save all of them while giving him a wrapped package, telling him to find someone named "the Keeper" before passing away.
