Ori And The Will Of The Wisps Coming to Xbox One in February 2020. Pre-Order Today!

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

An upcoming adventure video game developed by Moon Studios is coming exclusively to Xbox in February 2020. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is about the journey of Ori, a white guardian spirit. The game was originally announced in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017 (E3) on 11 June 2017. The announcement was accompanied by a teaser trailer, and it has taken the amazingly beautiful and adventurous game about three years since then to finally come to Xbox One. The official date of the arrival has been marked as 11th February 2020. Interested players can pre-order the game now.

Moon Studios has previously brought to players an amazing game called Ori and the Blind Forest. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a sequel to this very game. The soundtrack of the game is composed by Gareth Coker. Working on the Unity engine, the game is strictly single-player and technically falls into two genres – Platform Adventure and Metroidvania. Metroidvania is typically a sub-genre of platform action-adventure games and features a large interconnected world map that players are required to explore and play the game in. Thus, in Ori and the Will of the Wisps, you will find a large unexplored map full of mystical places, such as enchanting forests, fire-breathing caves, chilling marine environments, and much more.

Ori and the Blind Forest has been a phenomenal success amongst players and has won multiple awards.
