Fans of the original Hollow Knight have waited a long time to learn anything new about Team Cherry’s follow-up, Hollow Knight: Silksong.

As with many other titles announced during the showcase, Silksong will be available on Game Pass at launch. Though no firm release date was provided, Microsoft confirmed in both presentation and on Twitter that everything shown would be available over the next 12 months, putting Silksong‘s release no later than June 2023. 

The trailer shows Hornet taking on a variety of foes in a number of different environments. Team Cherry has said that there will be “mossy grottos, coral forests, and shining citadels …” to explore. Things look just as frantic and deadly as ever before. You can see the game in action above. 

Silksong was announced in 2019 and began life as DLC for Hollow Knight before becoming a larger project that ultimately turned into a full-fledged sequel.
