Where Winds Meet Announced
Chinese developer Everstone Studio announced Where Winds Meet, an open-world action adventure RPG. The game is being developed for PC, with an open beta test planned for later this year.
Where Winds Meet is set during the twilight of the Ten Kingdoms period in China and the start of the Northern Song Dynasty (second half of the 9th century CE). The game’s announcement trailer initially focuses on the fate of Li Yu, the final Emperor of the Southern Song Dynasty, before showing snippets of gameplay and other scenes.
Players take on the role of a wandering swordsman, who must choose whether to uphold their moral code or live for themselves in a time ravaged by fighting. The game features fast-paced, Wuxia-style combat, and implements many aspects of Chinese martial arts. Exploration will allow players to scale walls, leap over rooftops, sprint over waves, or ride on horseback. It is also set to include various sandbox features, letting players take on roles such as a doctor or merchant as well as construct their own buildings in the world.
