In a twist surprise, Microsoft has announed that the highly anticipated Metroidvania Hollow Knight Silksong is coming to Game Pass at launch, when it releases. Team Cherry has also showed off a brand new trailer for the first time in years at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase.
The new gameplay is the first we have seen of the game in a long time and it is looking absolutely gorgeous! The 2D Metroidvania starring Hornet is a beautiful sequel to the original game and Team Cherry have clearly been putting in the work.
A host of new bosses, enemies, abilities, environments, and more are showcased and it looks like the game is close to coming out. No release date was given for the game, however, its Game pass release should be a huge success when it does release on console, PC, and Cloud.
