Ready to take social distancing to the next level? Deep Silver have today announced, detailed and fully confirmed the launch date for Windbound, their upcoming rogue-like survival adventure which will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Created by the Australian team at 5 Lives Studio and picked up by Deep Silver, Windbound has today been confirmed to launch on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC come 28th August 2020 – and should you be looking to fully immerse yourself in some proper social distancing and are ready to learn how to survive, shipwrecked on an unknown land, this is going to be a game for you.
Windbound promises to run as a rogue-like third person survival adventure as you take on the role of Kara – shipwrecked miles from home and left to adapt, survival, and solve a ton of mystery.
Attempting to take the survival genre in an altogether new direction, Windbound will see you focusing on nomadic hunting and exploration, together with custom boat building and an immersive tactile sailing experience. The game will also provide endless replayability options thanks to a procedural world, dynamic wildlife and modular boat crafting. The question is, can you unravel the mystery behind the island you find yourself on, uncover the secrets within and eventually make your way home!
- Uncover the Secrets Within – Embark on a personal journey and discover the history of the idyllic Forbidden Islands; each holding the key to a mystery and unexpected revelations.
- Explore As Far As The Eye Can See – Head towards the horizon, advancing across the islands, each with their own diverse wildlife, landscapes and challenges to face.
- Live Off The Land – Scavenge the islands’ untamed terrain for resources that you can use to craft a full range of tools and weapons to hunt wildlife and upgrade your boat. You must set sail when resources become scarce.
- Build Your Perfect Seacraft – Your boat is your key companion on this journey, carefully craft your own custom sailing vessel to take on the treacherous waters, traversing from one island to the next. Design your boat to battle tempestuous winds, monstrous waves, and deadly sea creatures.
