Oddworld Collection announced: the collection arrives on Nintendo Switch in May

Oddworld Collection announced

While Lorne Lanning presents what will be the gameplay features of Oddworld: Soulstorm, now in the pipeline on PlayStation 5 and PC, a further announcement comes from the saga.

The progressive debut of Abe's first adventures on Nintendo Switch now finds fulfillment in the presentation of a collection dedicated to the saga. As you can verify directly at the bottom of this news, the publisher Microids has announced through its social channels the intention to bring an Oddworld: Collection exclusively to the hybrid console. The latter will include on a single cartridge the original trilogy dedicated to the poor Mudokon.

In particular, the collection will offer the public the opportunity to venture among the disturbing universes of:

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty; Oddowrld: Munch's Oddysee; Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath; Once again, it will therefore be possible to (re) discover the imagery conceived by Lorne Lanning and the Oddworld Inhabitants team, with its cinisco and macabre humor. At the same time as the announcement, Microids has already confirmed a release date for the production, which will reach the shores of the Nintendo hybrid console on May 27, 2021.

The month of April, we remind you, will instead see the arrival of the sequel to Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty as originally conceived by Lanning: for further details, the tried and tested Oddworld: Soulstorm by our Alessandro Bruni is available on the pages of Everyeye.

PS Plus April 2021 free games include Oddworld: Soulstorm, Days Gone, & Zombie Army 4

Oddworld: Soulstorm will launch free on PSa>5 as part of PS Plus while Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War also join the April's slate of free games.

Each new month on PlayStation brings a nice collection of free games to go with it through the PlayStation Plus program. We’ve seen plenty of awesome titles come and go through the program and we’re about to get another as we go into April. This coming month, as the new and bizarre Oddworld: Soulstorm launches, PS5 players with PS Plus will be able to get it for free throughout the month. Meanwhile, all PS4 and PS5 players will also be able to claim copies of Days Gone and Zombie Army 4 throughout the month.

PlayStation announced the latest slate of PS Plus games for April 2021 via the PlayStation blog on March 31, 2021. Perhaps the most prominent game of the bunch is Oddworld: Soulstorm, which recently recieved a release date of April 6, 2021 on PS4, PS5, and PC. It will be featured on PS Plus as the free PS5 game for the month the same day as it launches. Unfortunately, PS4 players are out of luck for that particular game, but April’s PS Plus slate also includes Days Gone and Zombie Army 4 if either strike your fancy.

Days Gone might be a little more of a niche taste due to its few drawbacks, but it’s not a bad offering at all and Zombie Army 4: Dead War continues the over-the-top action of the Sniper Elite spinoff, letting you bring all sorts of wild gunplay and ordinance against the forces of the Aryan undead. Both would make for good time-passing pickups at the low price of free.

Meanwhile, don’t forget that games like Final Fantasy 7 Remake and Destruction AllStars are still available on March’s PS Plus slate until April 6. If you want to pick those games and others up, now is the time to do it before Oddworld: Soulstorm, Days Gone, and Zombie Army 4 replace them as the April PS Plus offerings.
