Ascend to the Peak of a Haunted Kingdom

Captured and Taken to a Distant Land

Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest, finds herself alone in a vast, unfamiliar world.

She must battle foes, seek out allies, and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak.

Bound by her lineage and guided by echoes of her past, Hornet will adventure through mossy grottos, coral forests and shining citadels to unravel a deadly thread that threatens this strange new land.

Lethal Acrobatic Action

Hornet must master a whole new suite of powerful moves to survive. She'll unleash devastating attacks, learn incredible silken abilities, and craft deadly tools in order to overcome the kingdom's challenges.

Over 150 all-new foes stand between Hornet and the shining citadel crowning the kingdom. Beasts and hunters, assassins and kings, monsters and knights - Hornet must face them all with bravery and skill!

Beauty and Wonder in a Haunted World

The vast inter-connected world of Hollow Knight: Silksong is brought vividly to life in a traditional, hand-crafted, 2D style. Gilded cities, Lakes of fire, and misted moors are illustrated in exquisite detail and accompanied by a vibrant orchestral score.

In her search for the truth behind her capture, Hornet will befriend surprising strangers, discover shocking secrets and solve ancient mysteries in a kingdom full of wonders.

Hollow Knight: Silksong will be available on

A Soulful, Orchestral Score

Hollow Knight’s award-winning composer, Christopher Larkin, brings melancholy melodies, symphonic strings and heart-thumping, soul strumming boss themes to Hornet's adventure.
