Oddworld Soulstorm Endings Explained

Oddworld: Soulstorm is a re-telling of the 1998 classic platformer, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus. It sees Abe, once again, trying to free other Mudokons from the grips of the evil Gukkons, as the tyrannical race plan to turn every single living Mudokon into an all-new energy drink. Thus, players will have to use every bit of their ingenuity as they try and guide Abe to completing his mission.

The best and probably canon ending of Oddworld Soulstorm sets up the sequel nicely, but you'll have your work cut out for you if you want to get it.

Similar to the first remake, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, Oddworld: Soulstorm is a challenging game that will test players. However, those who put in the time to complete the game will find themselves with a worthy reward in the form of multiple endings.

Below, we'll explain all the Oddworld Soulstorm endings, including the good ones and the bad ones.

How Many Oddworld Soulstorm Endings Are There?

Of the four endings in Oddworld Soulstorm, two ends in the death of every single Mudokon, including Abe.

In total, there are four different Oddworld Soulstorm endings. Namely, the Worst, the Bad, the Good, and the Final Ending. Of the four, the Good ending is self-explanatory. It's the best ending and opens the game up for a follow-up. Meanwhile, the Final ending is the hardest to get of all four. However, achieving the Final ending rewards extra-diligent players with an extremely satisfying scene that involves newspapers at the end of the game.

What's the Difference Between Each Oddworld Soulstorm Ending?

While it's probably non-canon, the Final ending gives Oddworld Soulstorm a pretty satisfying conclusion.

Each Oddworld Soulstorm ending plays out differently from the other and the ending that you get depends on how many Mudokons you rescue.

The Worst Ending

The Worst Ending in Oddworld Soulstorm is very simple to unlock. You just have to complete the game having saved only 80% of the Mudokons in 6 levels or fewer. This means that if you breezed through the game with no care for your fellow Mudokons, this is the ending that you get, and, as the name suggests, it's not any good.odd

Basically, what happens is that every Mudokon and Slig inside the Soulstorm brewery dies after Chief Executive Officer Molluck detonated the factory, which unfortunately includes good ol' Abe. This also means that Abe's mission has failed and that there's no one left alive to tell anyone that the revolution nor Abe ever existed at all.

Bad Ending

If you save 80% of the Mudokons in at least 7 up to 11 levels in Oddworld Storm, you get to unlock the Bad Ending and an additional scene involving a clumsy Abe spilling some Soulstorm brew that blows up the engine room of the train. The explosion leaves everyone inside the factory dead with Abe lamenting how this all came about from his bad Quarma.

Good Ending

Unlocking the Good Ending requires clearly at least 12 levels with 80% of the Mudokons saved from an untimely death. Do this and you'll witness the Glukkons squabbling with each other as the Mudokon uprising starts to get traction. Molluck then sends a group of Sligs to kill his partners after hearing of their plans to overthrow him.

The ending concludes with a scene where Abe tells his friends that he knows where the Mudokans came from, which is clearly a setup for the next game in the franchise.

Final Ending

Unlocking the Final Ending in Oddworld Soulstorm isn't easy. It means that you'll have to put in the effort and complete all 17 levels of the game with a survival rate of at least 80%. This means that of the roughly 1,400 Mudokons that Abe can rescue in Oddworld Soulstorm, you'll have to leave no more than 200 to 300 dead or behind.

For all of your efforts though, the game will award you with a pretty sweet bonus scene that sees how much impact Abe's revolution has had on the Glukkons. In fact, according to the newspaper headline, Molluck has since gone incognito as Mudokons throughout the world start realizing that there's no reason to be slaves anymore.
