While discussing the title, game director Thomas Mahler referred to it as the “ultimate” version of the title. The expanded version of the game is set to include new areas to explore, new game mechanics, and “potentially” new abilities.
“It’s going to be an amazing package,” Mahler said. “We have received a ton of feedback and we’re just trying to make the ultimate version of Ori.”
According to the developers, fan feedback was a heavy influence on what was included in the new version of the game, claiming they went quiet after the original title’s release in order to spend a lot of time reading into players’ feedback.
No pricing for the definitive edition has been announced at this time.
