A few months ago — following the surprise reveal of Halo Infinite — Microsoft kicked off its E3 2018 conference by giving Ori and the Blind Forest fans a look at the sequel. Ori and the Will of the Wisps features an even bigger threat to the world, but our lovable protagonist has new moves and friends this time around. However, the story also seems darker, touching on subjects like genocide.
Today, at Gamescom 2018, Moon Studios announced a new mode for the game. The company said, "We are super excited to announce our all-new Spirit Trial mode. Spirit Trials will be found throughout the world... and allow players to asynchronously race against their friends." It's great to see that this social feature is making its way to the sequel. Keep in mind that this isn't multiplayer, you can just race against the "ghosts" of your friends.
In Ori and the Will of the Wisps, players embark on an adventure with new combat and customization options while exploring a vast, exotic world. The goal is to seek help from discoverable allies on your path to unravel Ori's true destiny. By tackling a bigger problem, Ori leans more about himself.
The game is expected to launch in 2019. Unfortunately, no concrete release date was provided at Gamescom 2018. The good news is that it runs at 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X.
