Hollow Knight: Silksong will be an Xbox Game Pass day one release as revealed during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022.

The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 kicked off with a bang, showcasing some long-awaited games.

During the opening sequence, viewers were finally treated to gameplay footage of Hollow Knight: Silksong, the highly-anticipated sequel to Team Cherry’s Hollow Knight.

Additionally, fans of the Souls-like Metroidvania got some awesome news: It’ll be available on day one on Xbox Game Pass.

The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 revealed brand new gameplay for Hollow Knight: Silksong.

Many were certainly hoping that Silksong would appear at Summer Game Fest 2022 but were unsure of where exactly it would show up.

Thankfully viewers were treated to over a minute of brand new gameplay showing the main hero, Hornet, traversing environments and fighting bosses.

This new gameplay trailer gave viewers a better look at some of Hornet’s abilities, including multiple projectile weapons, her air dash attack, and the ability to latch onto hooks to travel.

While we don’t know an exact release date for Silksong, we do know that the game will launch on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC.

Hollow Knight players have been a little worried over Silksong’s development, due to Team Cherry’s long periods of silence when it comes to showcasing the game.

However, it appears the team is making good progress, as the gameplay show looks just as robust, if not more so than 2017’s Hollow Knight.

It still seems like Silksong has a bit more development time ahead of it though, as the Xbox Games Showcase trailer didn’t give out any solid info on the game’s release timing.

Perhaps with a little more time, Team Cherry will finally reveal a launch window for Hollow Knight: Silksong, but fans will just have to remain patient for the time being.
