Moon Studios’ Definitive Edition of Ori And The Blind Forest comes to Steam and Windows 10 on April 27, Microsoft has announced on their Xbox Wire blog. The spruced-up Definitive Edition released last month on Xbox One to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the original game’s release and adds new areas, story elements, abilities and an Easy mode for those that primarily enjoy the story.
The Definitive Edition is all about making a great game even more accessible for players; besides new areas, music, story elements, and the additional Light Burst and Dash abilities, it adds a new Easy difficulty for those who’d like to relax a little and take in the sights of Nibel. Ori can even warp between Spirit Wells, the game’s save points, which makes for a faster and more streamlined experience. Fans can also now purchase official merchandise at the new Ori and The Blind Forest shop.
In regards to specific improvements made to the PC version, Microsoft says that it offers “enhanced resolution and monitor support,” as well as the “ability to cross-save between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions.”
Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition gets even better on Windows 10, offering enhanced resolution and monitor support, and the ability to cross-save between the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions. On all platforms, Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition also comes bundled with the original Ori and the Blind Forest release for free.
For those of you who already own the original version on PC, Microsoft hasn’t forgotten about you! In an effort to give early adopters a bonus and added incentive, existing owners can upgrade to Ori And The Blind Forest: Definitive Edition for the reduced cost of $4.99.
If you’ve yet to play Moon Studios’ whimsical and emotional adventure game, you owe it to yourself to do so. It’s pretty much universally considered to be brilliant, and we agree.
