Windbound is a survival adventure game about building boats

That name is spot-on

Recommended Videos

I am absolutely down for an arrow-slinging, ship-building, island-hopping survival adventure game that doesn’t look unnecessarily hostile or stingy. Anyone else? That’s the premise for Windbound, an upcoming PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch title about a stranded warrior.

5 Lives Studios and its publisher, Deep Silver, revealed the game today. It looks neat!

Hunting down resources, crafting tools and weapons, and sailing to the next Forbidden Island once you’ve run out of materials seems to be the central loop. I can picture myself falling into that pretty hard. Your boat is your “key companion,” and the building system is modular, which I always appreciate.

As for the big-picture story, “scattered ruins reveal secrets of the past and glimpses of the future.”

Windbound is releasing for PC and consoles on August 28, 2020.
