Celebrating the launch of Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Microsoft has dropped the price of the Xbox One X to just $399, its “best value price ever,” according to Microsoft.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is available now with Xbox Game Pass and on Xbox One, Windows 10 PC and Steam,” Microsoft’s Daniel Smith writes in a new post to the Xbox Wire. “Offering a new combat system and Easy, Normal and Hard modes alongside the beautiful visuals and music the series is known for, Ori and the Will of the Wisps is a one-of-a-kind adventure everyone can enjoy.”

It’s also a one-of-a-kind adventure everyone that can enjoy on a new Xbox One X more inexpensively than ever before: Microsoft’s flagship console is just $399 now, a price Microsoft describes as its “best value price ever,” whatever that means. And the new Ori game delivers HDR colors, true 4K resolution, and 60 fps of performance, so it should be a visual feast.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps can be played as part of an Xbox Game Pass subscription on console or PC, including Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. (Ori’s first adventure, Ori and the Blind Forest, is also available on Game Pass.) Or, you can purchase the game for Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and Steam for $29.99. There’s also a $49.99 Limited Collector’s Edition that provides a golden feather SteelBook case, a Piano Collections Ori and the Will of the Wisps soundtrack CD, a download code for the game’s soundtrack, and The Art of Ori and the Will of the Wisps book.
