Oddworld: Soulstorm was released earlier this month on PC, PS4, and PS5. The game received a positive reception from both fans and critics. However, much of the criticism was directed toward technical issues. While the developer has already released multiple patches to address them, more is still required.

Update 1.08 is the biggest patch yet and it increases game immersion. You now have the option to disable the main HUD UI and badge alerts from the Settings menu. The rest of the changes are bug fixes for different levels, Abe, AI, and more. I am still waiting for developers to add full keyboard support and MnK prompts support.
