Ori and the Blind Forest

Ori and the Blind Forest (opens in new tab) is a sumptuous Metroidvania about a cute sprite that dies repeatedly in tough platforming sequences, and Tyler Wilde was rather fond of it when he reviewed the original version a year ago (opens in new tab). It's since been updated in a Definitive Edition that released on Xbox One last month, but last-minute delays pushed the PC version back to an unspecified date.

That date has now been specified (opens in new tab). Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition will hit PC on April 27, which as calendar fans will know is next Wednesday. This new version will cost $19.99, or $4.99 if you own the original Ori, and adds new areas, a new Easy difficulty, warp points and more.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
