The creator of the upcoming platformer Ori and the Will of the Wisps announced on Twitter today that the game has gone gold, which means the game is finished with development and ready for physical sales. While sales of physical discs may not be as high as they were in previous years, there’s still something to be said for the excitement that comes with knowing a highly anticipated upcoming game is nearly ready for release.
Collector’s editions are also an important part of a physical release, and that’s exactly what the official Twitter post referenced. With the completion of the game and the ability for physical copies to be shipped, it opens the opportunity for special editions of the game.
The game will offer a collector’s edition that includes the game, a soundtrack, the piano collections disk, a steel book with matching packaging, and an art book of beautiful concept art.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the sequel to the first platformer, called Ori and the Blind Forest, by Moon Studios. Ori and the Blind Forest followed the story of a young orphaned creature bringing life back to the forest with challenging puzzles. It featured beautiful storytelling with stunning art. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is set in the same world and will follow Ori as he further unravels his destiny.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps releases March 11 on Xbox One, PC, and Steam. Pre-orders for the collector’s edition are available now.
