Deep Silver Sets Sail with New IP Windbound

Publisher Deep Silver revealed Windbound, a new indie IP title developed by 5 Live Studios, set to launch later this year.

Deep Silver punctuated the announcement with a trailer, giving players a look at the beautiful world that the protagonist Kara will take on as a young warrior shipwrecked in unknown waters.

“Kara must learn to adapt and survive while experiencing the ever-unfolding mysteries of the Forbidden Islands,” a press release by Deep Silver said. “Equipped with only the will to survive, Kara must explore the beautiful yet savage landscape by foraging for resources. Hunting, crafting and exploration are critical to Kara’s survival as she sails the Forbidden Islands looking for the way home.”

Windbound is taking survival in a different direction, Deep Silver said, featuring nomadic hunting and exploration combined with custom boat building and an immersive sailing experience.

Windbound provides endless rogue-like replayability options thanks to the procedural world, dynamic wildlife, and modular boat crafting,” Deep Silver said.

Windbound will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on August 28, 2020.
