Island of Winds – Trailer
The trailer is here and you have got to watch it before you decide on anything else.
Once you start the gameplay, the player turns to Brynhildur, a witch who has spent almost the whole of her life living in Iceland. She belongs to Balance Keepers and is a member of it ever since. The group has magical powers and they tend to change things through the power they attain.
Therefore, you will be experiencing the game from Brynhildur’s eyes. It will be a different experience for the player as they find a world full of creatures that are unique and idiosyncratic.
From the feels of it, it’s sending chills down my spine. Is it doing the same to you?
Brynhildur leaves on a journey to locate her mentor ”Hrymja” and to do so, will be traveling throughout the gorgeous landscapes. The journey will be set across nine landscapes few of which are, the treacherous Jökla lagoon, the gleaming Obsidian Shora, and the fiery Laval of Skjól.
The Island of Winds is releasing in 2022 and that’s currently the target date set for the release.
It might just be a little bit of wait time before you experience the wonders of Icelandic folklore. The game will be available to play on PC and Playstation 5.
Definitely, a game to watch out for, tell me if you aren’t excited.
