%%* AdaptedOut: Dripik, Phleg, Aslik, and the Brewmeister will be absent in the game.
%%* ArtEvolution: Mudokons and Glukkons are given more distinct appearances, making it easier to tell individual characters.
%%* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to ''Abe's Exoddus'', which had a lot of comedy, ''Soulstorm'' aims to tell the sinister story that was originally envisioned, but will still contain the trademark BlackComedy.



%%* HesBack: Molluck is set to return.



%%* NotHisSled: ''Soulstorm'' is described as a return to how Lorne Lanning originally envisioned Abe's Exoddus before the latter was altered and stripped down. Ergo, Soulstorm's plot differs from the final product of Abe's Exoddus. The corporations and executives are thematically similar to the old ones, but are new characters.
%%* PacifistRun: The player has the option to even spare Sligs, which is mandatory for 100% completion.
%%* PuttingOnTheReich: The Soulstorm research facilities are disturbingly reminiscent of Dr. Mengele's experiments in the Holocaust.



%%* WeirdTradeUnion: Each Glukkon industry now has one, styled as an esoteric Fraternity in the vein of the Freemasons and full of AncientConspiracy motifs.

* DenialOfDiagonalAttack: Averted for your enemies, the Sligs, as the trailer clearly shows them shooting diagonally downwards from the upper platforms, which has already caused much consternation for the long-time players in the comments.



* ItemCrafting: The trailer outright refers to looting, battling and crafting their way.
* NightmarishFactory: The trailer outright describes the setting as an "industrial hell". It's quite justified, too, considering that those factories are driven by practically naked slaves like Abe, until he ends up starting a rebellion.



%%* SceneryGorn: Much like the previous game, but Soulstorm extends it to a shipping container sorting plant, which despite its mundane function, still feels ominous and oppressive.
