Deep Silver have today revealed that 5 Lives Studios’ rogue-like 3rd-person survival adventure Windbound will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch on August 28th.
Fuelled by hunting, exploration and crafting, Windbound puts you in the role of Kara who has been shipwrecked and must learn to adapt and survive whilst unravelling a mystery of these unknown islands.
‘Taking the survival genre in a new direction’, Windbound focuses on hunting and exploration, along with custom crafting such as boat building and an ‘immersive tactile sailing experience’, whatever that may possibly mean. We’re not entirely sure, looks gorgeous though eh?
A quick overview of the narrative from the blurb;
The forbidden islands are calling, unlock their secrets. Shipwrecked alone on an uncharted island, explore, adapt and navigate the land and perilous seas to stay alive.
As Kara, you are a warrior, caught at sea in a fierce storm, adrift from your tribe. Thrown from your boat, at the mercy of the turbulent waters, you are tossed on to the shores of the Forbidden Islands, a mysterious paradise.
With no boat, no food or tools, just the will and skill to survive, uncover this beautiful island’s rich resources. Craft tools and weapons to hunt and defend yourself against nature itself with its wild and fantastical creatures.
Whilst exploring further islands and the scattered ruins across their lands, secrets of the past and glimpses of the future are revealed. Unravel the mystery behind them all and you may find more than just your way home.
Check out the trailer below and be sure to get excited for this shiny new IP.
