Ori and the Will of the Wisps Gets a Competitive Time Trial Mode Called Spirit Trials

A new online competitive mode asks you to race against your friends.

A new feature is coming to Ori and the Will of the Wisps that will let you compete in time trials against your friends.

The new mode, titled Spirit Trials, was announced as part of Xbox's Gamescom line-up. Spirit Trials are challenging courses where you race against shadow versions of your friends in a race to complete the various trials. Beating the high scores will get you in-game rewards.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps was announced in 2017 as part of Microsoft's E3 press conference. The trailer was beautiful and devastating, which is par for the course for a sequel to the Metroidvania Ori and the Blind Forest. Ori and the Will of the Wisps is scheduled to come out in 2019 for Xbox One and PC.
