This was the large one. The Xbox showcase is a bombastic occasion stuffed with multimillion greenback video games, however I do not assume a single one was extra ravenously anticipated than Hollow Knight: Silksong. Would or not it’s at this 12 months’s not-E3? Would we lastly be taught after we’ll be capable of play it? Yes, and… no.

After years of creating in near-silence, Team Cherry has emerged from Hallownest to ship a brand new Silksong trailer on the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, and reveal that it is coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch.

What we did not get is a launch date.

It’s been a very long time since we have seen Silksong, and even gotten any new details about it. Edge journal ran a characteristic on Silksong in December 2020, and since then it has been a dry year-and-a-half. This new trailer reveals a complete lot of Silksong protagonist Hornet in motion, with a number of large phrases teasing components of the game: Hunt, Survive, Vanquish. Aka: kill little issues, navigate a treacherous atmosphere, kill large issues.

Sadly, we nonetheless do not know when Silksong is coming. The trailer ended with no launch date, or perhaps a 12 months to provide us some thought of after we’ll be enjoying it.
