Community Bug Report Update 3.20

We are working around the clock to bring you a patch in the coming days that fixes performance issues and a large number of reported bugs across all platforms. Our goal is to provide a quality patch that addresses many needs at once and is thus taking us a few extra days to perfect. Once the patch drops several performance issues you may have experienced will decrease significantly and the game will be enjoyed more fully by many more users. In the meantime, some of the most common reports are below.

Common Reports and Workarounds

“I can’t burrow or water-dash!” Please make sure you have acquired the Dash ability in Kwolok’s Hollow, or burrow and water-dash will not work.

“The sound buzzes/stutters a lot!” A few workarounds while we fix this issue is to install your game on an SSD and disable antivirus real-time scanning for the game. This fixes a lot of issues for some but not guaranteed. A fix is coming for this one.

“I can’t remap some of my buttons!” This is a known issue and will be fixed in the upcoming patch.

“I beat the game and didn’t get some of the end-game achievements!” Also a known issue and will be fixed in the upcoming patch.

“I can’t get rid of this quest/rumor even though I did it already!” This is a known issue and will be fixed in the upcoming patch.

“I’m stuck behind a door!” We are aware of a small number of instances where you are stuck from progressing in the game. While we work on these issues, please read below on how to load a backup save.

Thank you for your continued patience!


Community Bug Report Update 3.13

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback so far while playing Will of the Wisps. It has been invaluable to us! 

We would like to share an update on the status of known issues and bug reports. Here is a list of Top Known Issues and their status:

Xbox One Upcoming Fixes

Improving performance on both Xbox One X and Xbox One S across the entire game as well as during busy combat scenarios

Removing the stutters on Xbox One S and Xbox One X after longer periods of play time

Addressing various gameplay, localization and technical bugs

Additional improvements are also planned for the Xbox One version in a future update, including plans to improve the HDR support for Xbox One

PC Upcoming Fixes

Weapon Wheel (both RT/LT bringing up abilities)

Chinese font rendering issue

Key Remapping Error

More options for performance tweaking on the PC:

More Known Issues We are Investigating

Crash during title screen: Investigating

No In-game sound: Investigating

If you are having audio buzzing issues, in some cases, adding the game to your antivirus exclusion list will work as a temporary fix. The next patch will be coming next week, so stay tuned! 

We also understand there are a number of softlocks, i.e., when Ori gets stuck somewhere and you cannot progress through the game, and while we work on their fixes, the best workaround would be to use a backup save.

How to Access Your Backup Saves

Return to the Main Title Screen

Select ‘Start Game’

Select the game slot you wish to access

Select the save you would like to start from.
