Oddworld Soulstorm Patch 1.05 Eliminates a Few Pesky Bugs

The patch also tweaks a bit of the game's voice over in the Train Hijack level and peripheral remapping on PC.

The first Oddworld: Soulstorm post-launch patch is live, and it squashes some of the platform adventure game’s early teething issues.

Developer Oddworld Inhabitants said the 1.05 update fixes a small handful of issues, including leaderboards on PlayStation 5, keyboard and controller remapping on PC, and “several cases of Abe becoming soft-locked in rare circumstances.”

The full, albeit short, run-down of tweaks per an official release includes: 

  • News Soundbite VO in Train Hijack level changed.

  • Ranking in PS5 leaderboards is now correct.

  • Fixes for several cases of Abe becoming soft-locked in rare circumstances.

  • Fix on PC for Keyboard and Controller remapping when language is set to Russian and Japanese.

Eurogamer reported on April 6 that the studio was aware of some of the issues at the time of launch. However, it didn’t take long for Oddworld Inhabitants to take action and get them fixed up, it seems. 

The team also said that another patch is in the works for various other bugs. Patch 1.06  will focus on Abe and his interactions with some of the game’s NPCs. “This will include fixes for some rude Sligs that are, in rare cases, ignoring Abe and some strange behavior when Abe is turning off the timed toggle mines in a few areas,” OI said. 

Oddworld: Soulstorm is out now on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. It is a console exclusive to PlayStation platforms for the time being, and there’s no definitive word on when it will release on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. 

Stay tuned for more on Oddworld: Soulstorm in the coming days and weeks, including our full review of the PlayStation version of the game.
