Can you play Ori and the Will of the Wisps on Xbox Series X? You might be wondering if your favorite games on Xbox One can run on the shiny new Series X before you dive in. You'll be glad to know that Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a Smart Delivery-enabled game that you can enjoy with new Series X|S optimization.

Can You Play Ori and the Will of the Wisps on Xbox Series X?

The simplest way to play Ori and the Will of the Wisps on an Xbox Series X is to just buy the game digitally from the Microsoft store.

If you own the game digitally already, you'll be able to re-download it to your new Series X console. You'll actually be able to get it on any Xbox using Smart Delivery.

Players who own the game physically can also get the game on Series X. Simply pop in the disc and you'll be able to pick up right where you left off. Of course, the disc method won't work if you get the disc drive-less Xbox Series S. If you have a large physical game collection, consider the Series X to make the most out of your library.

There isn't an Xbox Series X specific disc release for Ori, so you can buy it physically if you haven't already. You'll also be able to take advantage of sales and used games while still running them on the new hardware.

The new hardware breathes new life into old games. According to Microsoft, Ori and the Will of the Wisps has the following optimizations for Xbox Series X:

  • 4k HDR Locked 120 FPS: Experience Ori platforming with incredible smoothness and instant input response while maintaining sharp and vibrant HDR image on the Xbox Series X. Xbox Series S will deliver 1080p HDR at locked 120 FPS as well!
  • Dynamic high-fidelity Audio with Convolution Reverb: Experience Ori’s soundtrack and gameplay at the highest quality assets with increased dynamic range, advanced real time mixing and ambience with convolution reverb, previously not possible in real-time. Available on both Xbox Series X and S.
  • Reduced in Game Load Times: Ori game modes load significantly faster with the custom SSD in the Xbox Series X|S.
  • Quick Resume: Seamlessly switch between multiple different titles and resume instantly from where you left off.
