Microsoft and Moon Studios have announced that Ori and the Will of the Wisps has passed over 2 million players. Do note, however, that these are not the game’s sales. After all, this new Ori game was available on Xbox Game Pass at launch.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is the sequel to Ori and the Blind Forest. The game came out on March 11th, meaning that it took three and a half months in order to hit the 2 million milestone.
In this game, players assume the role of Ori and embark on an all-new adventure. The game features a vast and exotic world where you’ll encounter towering enemies and challenging puzzles on your quest to unravel Ori’s true destiny.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a masterpiece. It’s one of the best games of 2020 (at least in my opinion) and one of the best platformers. Its soundtrack is also eargasmic, and – believe it or not – better than the one for Ori and the Blind Forest.
It’s also worth noting that the PC version runs and looks glorious. While the game had some performance issues on Xbox One X, it runs silky smooth on a variety of systems on the PC.
I’ve included below the best music tracks from the game. Gareth Coker did an amazing job, so be sure to listen to them. You can purchase the soundtrack and support the compose from here.
Be also sure to read our PC review. Here is hoping that this news will further boost the game’s sales (because it deserves even more).
