We wanted to make the Definitive Edition a celebration of sorts for our players and fans, and welcome them into the journey that we went through from the beginning to the end of the development process.

To make backtracking to previous areas easier in comparison to the original Ori and the Blind Forest, the Definitive Edition now has a Fast Travel system.
It was released on June 14, Both of these can take an inordinate amount of time to get just right. This can be frustrating when it takes multiple tries to succeed… but giving players control over where and when they saved and re-spawned really helped us get to the fun faster.
It actually was the source of many design discussions and debates during development, as many other great games in the genre employ fixed save points, and balance the game around the player exploring out from these hubs.
True to the original game, the two new areas — Black Root Burrows and Lost Grove — come with a unique theme in both graphical presentation as well as play mechanics.
