Many things are happening with the Oddworld series lately. SoulStorm is only a few months away from release and information is slowly being released. Lorne Lanning has confirmed that the series has been rebooted and with that comes a challenge for those of us documenting lore. For the wiki specifically we're currently dealing with the question of how to handle the new lore, some of which directly conflicts with the old lore.

Hello friendly Oddworld Wiki residents,
Radical Edward has been kind enough to bestow the mythical powers of the admin onto me so I can properly help out administrating this Wikia.

See you around!Read more >
