In the latest turn of events in the gaming industry, Silksong, the long-awaited sequel to Hollow Knight, has been delayed. The release date was originally set to release in the first half of 2023, and has been delayed. Matthew Griffin, who is responsible for marketing and publishing the game, made the announcement, leaving fans with suspense but no exact timeline for its arrival.
Griffin took to Twitter for the official announcement. He expressed our plans to release it in the first half of 2023, but development is still ongoing. We’re excited about how the game is shaping up, and it’s getting pretty big, so we want to take the time to make the game as good as possible.” He also assured fans to expect more details closer to the release date.
Silksong is set to let players take on the role of Hornet, protector of the Princess of Hallownest, as she embarks on a dangerous journey through a kingdom ruled by silk and song. Storming this strange world, Hornet will have to fend off enemies and unravel mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak.
As the epic follow-up to Hollow Knight, Silksong promises to carry on the legacy of its award-winning predecessor. Players will venture into uncharted lands, gain new powers, encounter a host of insects and monsters, and uncover ancient secrets connected to the nature and history of their characters.
The game features a vast new kingdom to explore, filled with coral forests, mossy caves, gilded cities, and misty swamps, all leading to the shining castle at the top of the world. Players can look forward to engaging in deadly acrobatic action, using a new set of deadly moves in beautifully dangerous combat scenarios.
To enhance the gameplay, Silksong will also offer powerful tools for players to craft and expand their arsenal of weapons, traps, and mechanisms. These will help not only in fighting against enemies but also in reaching new heights within the game.
Players can also expect to take on harrowing quests, hunt down elusive monsters, solve ancient puzzles, and search for lost treasures. These activities aim to fulfill the wishes of the oppressed and restore hope within the kingdom.
One of Silksong’s most notable features is the inclusion of over 150 new enemies, ranging from monsters and hunters to assassins and kings. These enemies will undoubtedly test the courage and skill of the players. After the successful capture of the kingdom, players can also challenge Silk Soul mode, which promises a unique and challenging experience that the game takes place in a new world.
Despite the disappointment surrounding the delay, the commitment to perfecting Silksong is evident. Gamers can only hope that the wait will be worth it, resulting in a more refined and engaging gaming experience.
