PS Plus April 2021: Oddworld: Soulstorm is Free For PS5 Players

Free... if you've spent £400 on a new console (and then some more on a PS Plus sub)

Today’s State of Play didn’t exactly set anybody’s seats ablaze, but there was something quite cool announced for PS Plus subscribers on PS5: Oddworld: Soulstorm for PS5 is a PS Plus freebie in April.


Abe’s latest adventure, Oddworld: Soulstorm, is coming to PS4 and PS5 this April 6th. However, if you’re a PS5 owner who also subscribes to PlayStation Plus, you’ll get the game for free as part of April 2021’s PS Plus free games offer.

If you’re on PS4… tough luck, I’m afraid, but this isn’t the first time. Bugsnax launched on PS4 and PS5 but only the next-gen version was offered to PS Plus subscribers. Why? No idea. Maybe because there are fewer PS5 players than PS4 players, so it’s not exactly being given away to as many people, right? The majority of PlayStation fans are still on PS4, and that may be the case for a while until Sony can get more PS5 stock to retailers. (More specifically, retailers and their websites…)

Oddworld: Soulstorm comes with a range of improvements on PS5, as well as some cool features. The game will naturally run smoother on the next-gen console, and it will benefit from the DualSense wireless controller, which the game makes use of. One cool part of the DualSense implementation in Oddworld: Soulstorm is that you’ll be able to feel Abe’s heartbeat through the controller during tense situations.

What is Oddworld: Soulstorm?

Oddworld: Soulstorm is the follow-up to Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty! and it also serves as a re-imagining of Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. New ‘n’ Tasty itself is a re-imagining of Abe’s Odyssey. Will we ever see a true sequel? Or is Abe stuck in a temporal time-loop, destined to remade, remastered, and re-imagined for all eternity? Here’s hoping otherwise…
