Deep Silver and 5 Lives Studios have released a new Mural story trailer for Windbound on Nintendo Switch.

This rogue-like third-person survival adventure is “fuelled by hunting, exploration and crafting.”

You play as Kara, a warrior who becomes caught at sea in a fierce storm now shipwrecked alone on an uncharted island.

With no boat, food or tools, you must learn to adapt to survive while exploring scattered ruins to learn secrets of the past and glimpses of the future.

Crafting tools and weapons to hunt and defend yourself against wild and fantastical creatures will be necessary, while modular boat crafting will soon see you take to the waters for what also promises to be “an immersive tactile sailing experience.”

Those that pre-order the game when it becomes available on the Nintendo eShop will receive three exclusive Ancestral items:

Ancestral Attire: This treasured garment – fit for either a warrior or a priest – has been handed down from generation to generation, and now the time has come for Kara to honour her past.

Ancestral Oar: The Oceanic Gyre was revered in times past, though its true significance is enigmatic to Kara’s people today. Nevertheless, this salt-treated wooded oar remains sturdy and functional, despite its age.

Ancestral Knife: How or where the ancestors acquired these Sea Shards remains a mystery, but few would deny their efficacy. Luminous, durable and impossibly sharp, this blade cuts as well today as it did a hundred years ago.

“If players pre-order on Nintendo Switch or purchase the game within two weeks of launch, they will be entitled to redeem Kara’s Ancestral Gear DLC via the Nintendo eShop, until 10th September, 23:59,” Deep Silver explain.

“For Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong customers, the bonus items will be available to download a week after Launch on September 2nd until September 15th 23:59, at no extra cost.”

Windbound will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th August 2020.
