Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the sequel to the fantastic Metroidvania, Ori and the Blind Forest. In today’s Microsoft E3 2019 presentation, starting a couple of hours from now, we will be seeing the game’s third and final trailer, along with a release date reveal.

Luckily, our inside sources already clued us in on the official Ori and the Will of the Wisps release date ahead of time. Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be arriving February 11, 2020, on Xbox One and PC.

The sequel continues right where the original game left us off, so if you haven’t played it, even watching this trailer from E3 2018 can spoil the ending for you. Also, reading on will definitely spoil it for you, so if you haven’t played The Blind Forest, you should stop everything and play it right now.

In Ori and the Will of the Wisps, you will return to play as Ori as he works together with the last living chick of the giant owl Kuro. In case you don’t remember, Kuro was the antagonist in The Blind Forest, who met her untimely death at the end of the game.

It looks like Ori will be starting the game with all of his powers from the previous game but, as expected, he will gain new and powerful abilities throughout The Will of the Wisps. These powers include a light staff that allows him to strike dark creatures from close range, something we couldn’t do in the previous game.

Once again, the anticipated Ori and the Will of the Wisps is coming out on February 11, 2020, to Xbox One and PC. We’ll get to see more of the game later today, during the Xbox E3 2019 briefing.
