While the download is just a 100 MB placeholder, it should automatically update to the full game sometime in March or sooner. It's included in your subscription so you won't have to pay the $30. The title also supports Xbox Play Anywhere so you can transfer saves to Windows 10 and vice versa, and runs at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X.

  • I don't understand why anyone wants to spoil their experience by watching extended game play footage. Especially with such a story experience that Ori is.
  • I don't care about footage, only 7 days before this sweet, sweet game is running on my Xbox.
  • This could easily be game of the year for many. Just because it's a 2d side scrolled means nothing. Ori is one of the best new IPs I've played this Gen. Visuals are stunning and emotional. Can't wait.
