In 2015, Ori and the Blind Forest released to critical and commercial acclaim across the board. Its colourful hand-drawn visuals resonated with players of all ages, while the tight and challenging action-platformer gameplay required precision and quick reflexes from those craving to test their skill. After a brief delay, its sequel, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is finally available on Xbox One, PC and… drumroll… Xbox Game Pass!

Developed by Moon Studios, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a direct continuation to the well-received action platformer Ori and the Blind Forest. In this fast-paced Metroidvania (yeah, I know, we’re all tired of this term), you’ll once again take control of the little whitish spirit Ori. Exploring a colourful 2D landscape, you’ll visit sunlit jungle, mystical forests, gloomy underground caves systems and much more.

But don’t let its bright aesthetic fool you. While the game is no doubt appealing to players of all ages, its gameplay becomes demanding quickly. Guiding Ori further to unravel the little spirit’s destiny, you’ll encounter creatures of all shapes and sizes. Both friendly, those who will assist you on your path, and hostile – imposing bosses – those who would rather nibble on Ori. To deal with the latter, you’ll come across new powerful abilities.

Some of these abilities will allow Ori to overcome insurmountable combat instances and defeat towering foes. Others will help you in traversing the environment and provide access to previously inaccessible areas. Deviating from the main path, you’ll come across such abilities, as well as secrets and collectable shards to make Ori even stronger. And finally, for speedrunners to test their mettle, the game includes a leaderboard.

To find out if Ori and the Will of the Wisps lives up to the reputation of its predecessor, stay tuned for our upcoming review. But if you can’t wait that long, then for just £24.99, you can download Ori and the Will of the Wisps to your Xbox One and PC and enjoy Ori’s tale straight away. Or of course you can take the Xbox Game Pass route. And if you prefer a physical version, there’s an absolutely gorgeous Collector’s Edition available on Game UK. Available while stocks last, this edition includes the game itself, an artbook, a musical score and a striking black and gold steelbook.

High on caffeine, Edgar spends his leisure time playing visual novels, but give him the chance and he'll talk your ears off about Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. He refuses to play mobile games and doesn't understand the appeal of Pokemon.
