Hollow Knight: Silksong Release Date

developer: Team Cherry publisher: Team Cherry Official website

Hollow Knight: Silksong is a two-dimensional platformer belonging metroidvania sub-genre. The game is the continuation of Hollow Knight and both titles were developed by Team Cherry.


In Hollow Knight: Silksong we play as Hornet, the princess of the insect kingdom of Hallownest. She is captured and transported to an unknown domain. She must regain her freedom and discover why she suffered such a fate. A pilgrimage to the highest peak of the land will be necessary to achieve these goals.


In terms of gameplay, Hollow Knight: Silksong is a development of the ideas from the first part. So we get a two-dimensional platformer of the metroidvania type, putting a lot of emphasis on both combat and exploration. Maps have a largely open structure, and in addition to the main questline, there is no shortage of side adventures.

While playing, we must avoid pitfalls in the environment, collect items and solve occasional puzzles. We also spend a lot of time on battling our enemies. While playing, we have to face more than 150 new types of enemies. We do this using an acrobatic combat system, and battles are made more attractive by the fact that the heroine has a very different repertoire of moves and attacks than the character from the first part of the series. There is also a crafting system, allowing for the construction of weapons and traps.

Game modes

Hollow Knight: Silksong only offers the option of having fun solo. Upon completion of the campaign, a new gameplay mode called Challenge Silk Soul will be unlocked, which will dramatically change the rules of fun and is provide a challenge even for veterans.

Technical aspects

A strong advantage of the game are the beautiful two-dimensional visuals with an interesting graphic style. Fans of the first part should also be delighted by the news that the soundtrack was composed again by Christopher Larkin.
