Xbox Game Pass Gets A Big Exclusive In March

Or-free and the Will of the Wisps.


It's March, and game release season is finally starting on Xbox One. With new game launches come new additions to Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and PC, including the long-awaited sequel to one of the console's best games.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be available on March 11, both for Xbox Game Pass and as a traditional purchase. The game is substantially bigger than its predecessor, with even more detailed art design and expanded platforming and action. During GameSpot's Ori and the Will of the Wisps preview, Alessandro Fillari found it even more charming than Ori and the Blind Forest.
