Recently, a game called Windbound went up for preorder on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One. It's being published by Deep Silver and allows you to explore an uncharted island. As Kara, you are a warrior, caught at sea in a fierce storm, adrift from your tribe. Thrown from your boat, at the mercy of the turbulent waters, you are tossed on to the shores of the Forbidden Islands, a mysterious paradise.
According to Deep Silver, with no boat, no food or tools, just the will and skill to survive, uncover this beautiful island's rich resources. Craft tools and weapons to hunt and defend yourself against nature itself with its wild and fantastical creatures.
Whilst exploring further islands and the scattered ruins across their lands, secrets of the past and glimpses of the future are revealed. Unravel the mystery behind them all and you may find more than just your way home.
Windbound is launching on August 28 and will cost $30. It looks a lot like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but here's hoping that it lives up to that quality.
