First announced in June of 2017 at E3, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest. In it, Ori must journey outside of the Forest of Nibel alongside a new ally, find the truths left behind by the Lost Ones and otherwise discover what his destiny is.
However, dark forces are at play which threaten his friends and allies, and will stop at nothing to keep him from uncovering what he seeks.
The title recently received a new gameplay trailer at the 2019 Game Awards. In it, Ori is seen navigating their way through a dark and dangerous world, full of threats both natural and horrifying.
