Today, we wanted to take a moment to thank all those who have joined Ori on his quest to unravel his true destiny in Ori and the Will of the Wisps since launch on March 11. We’re truly humbled by the support of the Ori community, and are so excited that players both new and old have embarked on this journey with us.
“We couldn’t be happier that so many people have been playing and loving Ori and the Will of the Wisps. This has been a game over four years in the making, and everyone at Moon Studios has poured their hearts and souls into making Ori’s journey a magical experience for everyone,” said Thomas Mahler, Co-Founder of Moon Studios. “Your enjoyment of the game is what makes game development so fulfilling, and we cannot wait to see how the community continues to embrace Ori’s journey moving forward.”
To celebrate, we’ve pulled together a list of community achievements since launch! Overall, players have taken to Ori’s newfound customization, changing abilities over 101 million times and equipping over 39 million shards. In addition, players have upgraded their shards and weapons almost 12 million times. Overall, more than 15 million quests have been completed since launch, with players earning over 14 million achievements throughout their adventures.
Another feature that has taken off with the community are Spirit Trials, which are speedrun challenges Ori can tackle featuring asynchronous online multiplayer. Players can find Spirit Trials across Ori and the Will of the Wisps’ various regions and have been posting some blistering times thus far. Players have completed over 4.5 million Spirit Trials to date, and we cannot wait to see how players will improve over time and shatter records across the game.
