The next big game from Hidden Path Entertainment


Hidden Path Entertainment, makers of Defense Grid: The Awakening, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Age of Empires II HD, have exclusively revealed to Destructoid their next project, Windborne.

The new title is a social sandbox creation game where you can create and explore your very own world either by yourself or online with others. You'll be free to create your custom male or female character, then build and craft whatever you can imagine. There's a ton of ruins filled with puzzles and treasures to explore, plus enemies encroaching on your island that you'll have to defend against.


Part of your story will involve guiding creatures called Jin, where you will have to teach them, defend them, build them homes, and in turn they will help you in many different ways. Plus, there are dragons that you can breed that will unlock special abilities for you such as flying.

There's a big emphasis on community, and players will be able to see other player islands floating by. You'll be able to visit them to trade with their owners, join up with friends to help build stuff, and even attack other islands. Don't worry though, you're only attacking a copy of the island, so players won't actually lose anything here. You're merely earning points and putting a player's island to the test.

Windborne is planned for Steam on PC at the moment, and will be available on Steam Early Access. There will be achievements, leaderboards, cloud saves, Steam trading cards are in the works, and best of all, there will be no DRM. Hidden Path is also looking into mod support, but we should expect that after launch.

For now we have some exclusive artwork to share, and we'll be bringing you a more detailed looked at Windborne soon. Plus, those of you attending PAX Prime later this month will be able to go hands-on at booth #3330.
