With Windbound, Sony and 5 Lives Studios announced an action adventure that is strongly reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In the role of Kara you explore a long forgotten archipelago and you have to survive there and discover many secrets.
The newly announced action adventure looks at first glance Windbound Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild very similar – including the glider kite flights. However, the game focuses more on survival elements.
A "Zelda" for the PS4
Kara ends up on the shores of a mysterious archipelago. The first step is to survive. You hunt for animals to get food and you have to light a fire to roast meat. By building boats, you can travel back and forth between the individual islands. Kara tries to return to her fleet, which she was separated from during a storm.
In addition, many adventures await you on the islands. You fathom secrets and take on the wild beasts that live there. You will also explore ancient ruins where you will discover mysterious artifacts. This is how you get closer to the secret of the archipelago in Windbound and maybe find a way to return to your fleet. Each time Windbound is restarted, the archipelago is generated procedurally, which should increase the replay value. Because not only will the landscape of the islands change, but also which raw materials you will find there.
Windbound will be released for the PS4 in the third quarter of 2020.
