Hollow Knight fans are desperate for news about the gorgeous Metroidvania sequel, and while Microsoft has shown off plenty of new footage of the game as part of its Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, it has kept quiet about one important detail.
The Hollow Knight Silksong trailer confirmed that the game will be coming to Xbox Game Pass, which is excellent news for fans looking to dive into the sequel on day one. Although, one of the things players are looking for is a release date, some hints at the end of its anticipation, but that was left out of the trailer.
Instead, in a later segment, Microsoft’s Sarah Bond confirmed that all games shown in tonight’s showcase will be playable within the next 12 months. So at least we know we won’t be expecting Silksong in 2024 – although it would be nice to have a slightly more precise window for the game’s release.
While the new Hollow Knight Silksong trailer didn’t delve into any of the game’s key features, it did show a lot of what made the original game so immersive that it’s making a comeback – starting with this simply beautiful and clean line art style.
Take a look below:
Still, Team Cherry, stop this endless wait and let us know the release date for Hollow Knight: Silksong.
