After spending three years in Early Access on PC, open-world adventure Windscape has finally completed its journey of becoming a fully fledged title on the aforementioned platform as well as Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Are you ready for an experience inspired by the likes of The Legend of Zelda, Secret of Mana, and Golden Axe Warrior?
Windscape from Headup Games is a first-person exploration adventure set in a lovely, handcrafted world that’s made up of floating islands in the sky. It combines the spirit of those classics that inspired it with modern elements surrounding the crafting, exploration and survival aspects, ensuring a fresh blend of genres is the end-result.
The story sees a young girl, Ida, who’s leaving the safety of her parents’ home for the first time and travels across four unique islands. You’ll get to meet peaceful NPCs in each island’s overworld, whilst vicious monsters lurk in the murky dungeons and lairs you uncover along the way. Traversing the islands works in a rather non-linear manner, but the dungeons are actually more puzzling and combat driven. Being tactical and learning the enemies’ attack patterns will be crucial to overcome the larger foes such as ghosts, ogres and dragons. Your triumph over these will be rewarded well though as there are many valuable items for you to loot.
Those of you wishing to embark on the Windscape journey can do so right now on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. It’s currently priced at £16.74 on the Xbox Store, however should you get in early after launch – like within 7 days – will be able to grab a little discount on that.
