The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 has kicked off and Silksong fans waiting for some word — any word! — on the Hollow Knight sequel have been treated to a brand new trailer to accompany the announcement that the game will be available as a Day One Game Pass title.

Originally announced back in February 2019, Team Cherry's sequel to its breakout Metroidvania uberhit has been the subject of fervent speculation for a long time now, with the game trending on social media at the mere whisper of Direct-style presentation. Check out the new trailer above.

Interestingly, while no release date was provided, the Xbox showcase is focusing on games you'll be able to play in the next 12 months. This Nintendo-like focus on upcoming software launching relatively soon suggests that Silksong fans might have the game in their hands within a year. Xbox's official Twitter account confirmed that this is true for Silksong:

Again, no date was confirmed beyond the 12-month window, but having waited so long for news, it's a joy just to see some fresh footage.

Let us know below if you'll be jumping into Silksong (given the chance) on Game Pass or if you'll be sticking with the Switch version.
