Deep Silver and developer, 5 Lives Studios, has announced Windbound. A survival adventure game about building and maintaining a little raft ship to travel from island to island, this is a game well worth paying attention to.
In Windbound, a young warrior named Kara finds herself shipwrecked in unknown waters. Kara must learn to adapt and survive while experiencing the ever-unfolding mysteries of the Forbidden Islands. Equipped with only the will to survive, Kara must explore the beautiful yet savage landscape by foraging for resources. Hunting, crafting and exploration are critical to Kara’s survival as she sails the Forbidden Islands looking for the way home.
Taking the survival genre in a new direction, Windbound features nomadic hunting and exploration combined with custom boat building and an immersive sailing experience. Windbound provides endless rogue-like replayability options thanks to the procedural world, dynamic wildlife, and modular boat crafting.
The game will release on August 28, and for just about everything – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. To whet your appetite, look at this stunning trailer!
