Being lost at sea and then stranded on an uninhabited island isn’t always the paradise we expect. And not everyone has a saviour known as Tom Nook… Which is why in Windbound, you’re truly bound to fending for yourself, and responsible for one mission, and one mission alone – Survival.
Jump into the shoes of Kara. Stranded on a mysterious set of islands with nothing at all, she’ll have to fend for herself if she has any chance of survival. Windbound tasks the player with scavenging for resources to create tools. Hunt wildlife, and upgrade their boats to set sail across the various islands. Resources on each island are limited, and once those resources have been utilised, you’ll need to move on.
Watching the trailer, I can’t help but notice similarities to the incredible world that is Hyrule. Especially with the para-glider that we see Kara using. So, if inspiration was drawn from the masterpiece that is Breath of the Wild, I’m sure Windbound will keep us enchanted just as much. Windbound is set to release on the 28th of August for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
