If you enjoy Breath of the Wild, you will almost certainly be interested in Windbound, the next game to release from 5 Lives Studio.

Windbound is an open-world exploration game, allowing you to survive and explore an archipelago of exotic islands.

You play as Kara, an exploring who has become lost due to a harsh storm, tearing her apart from the rest of her crew.

The game is set to release in Summer, as an indie game title. But there are also concerns regarding the release due to the Coronavirus lockdown.


We don’t know of an official price as of yet, but we can make some accurate assumptions based on previous indie games and 5 Lives Studios titles.
