Silksong is real! The long-awaited sequel to Hollow Knight appeared during today’s Xbox and Bethesda’s Games Showcase. We also learned that the its coming to Game Pass. However, it does not have a release date yet.

Silksong is a prequel to the hit Metroidvania Hollow Knight, which debuted in 2017. It has players controlling Hornet, a character that showed up as a boss and friend during the first game.

Like the original Hollow Knight, you’re a bug exploring a giant 2D world. And if it’s anything like the first game, it’s going to be amazing.
