We haven't had such a viscerally positive reaction to visual design since Rayman Legends.

In tune with Microsoft's launch of next-gen consoles, Xbox Series X and S, Moon Studios rolled out an upgraded version of Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Moon Studios' co-founder Gennadiy Korol said he can finally spill the beans, as the team has been working on Ori and the Will of the Wisps' rendering pipeline, graphics quality settings, audio tech and performance for a few months now. 

So, if you have a TV that can support all the next-gen muscle, you'll be able to fire up Ori and the Will of the Wisps at 4K resolution and 120 FPS, all in crispy and vibrant HDR. 

"This allows for incredible motion resolution, silky smooth animation quality and input responsiveness that feels absolutely instant, which makes the platforming and combat feel that much more tactile, engaging and fun", he wrote.

That's not the end of Ori and the Will of the Wisps' next-gen enhancements, as the dev added a new 6K Supersampled Rendering Mode. This should significantly increase the image quality and sharpness, which the dev likened to seeing printed art on your TV at 60 FPS and 4K resolution. 

If you went for the more expensive SKU, Xbox Series X, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will let you choose between 4K at 120 FPS and 6K at 60FPS on the fly. 

Moon Studios Ori engages a group of enemies in Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Those bats brought wings to a bow and arrow fight.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps puts Xbox Series X/S' SSDs to good use and the optimisations mean much faster loading times. 

Last but not least are the audio improvements, and the in-game sound now runs the highest possible quality at a higher dynamic range, sprinkled with high-quality convolution reverb, i.e. an accurate albeit resource-intensive means to simulate space.
