Windbound receives first of several FREE content updates coming to the game now through next year
From Press Release:
Larkspur, Calif. (Oct. 30, 2020) – Deep Silver and 5 Lives Studios are pleased to announce further enhancements to the Windbound experience with a collection of free content updates releasing Q4 2020 through Q1 2021. These content additions will be free to all Windbound players and will arrive in three separate digital updates. Each update will feature new gameplay mechanics, cosmetics, and game modes – all at no cost.
The first content update will launch today and features the new Witch Skin that enhances Kara’s abilities. The Witch Skin content releases alongside the all new Photo and Endless modes.
The Witch Skin is composed of three new items for Kara to equip. The Witch’s Hat (potions last longer), the Witch’s Outfit (wear to respawn nearby after death), and the Witch’s Staff (an unbreakable staff that releases homing fireballs with each melee strike).
The first of the new modes is Photo mode, which allows the player to pause the game, adjust the camera and take a photo. Players can also change Kara’s pose and expression, time of day, and add filters.
- Creative mode for keen video game photographers offering full control over camera position and orientation, field of view, exposure, time of day, and position of the sun
- 20 different poses and expressions for Kara
- 20 hats and accessories for Kara
- A variety of filters, from black and white, to CRT, to pastel
The second mode is the ‘Eternal Voyage,’ which offers players an endless play mode. Endless play mode adds tracking to the map screen and save file to indicate how many stages the player has managed to survive. With endless play the game does not finish with Chapter 5, but continues on with progressively (but not endlessly) larger levels that become more varied and dangerous as you progress.
The Q4 2020 update will include additional skins for Kara, Free-sailing mode and an upgraded Nautilus tower experience, and will introduce a number of new towers for players to explore with new challenges to complete.
The early Q1 2021 updates will further expand the Nautilus tower experience while introducing new enemy types, combat moves, and gameplay mechanics via a “corruption” system. Additional details to follow in Q1 2021.
In addition, Kara’s Ancestral Gear, originally offered as a pre-order bonus, is now available to purchase for $2.99 on console, PC and Stadia digital stores.
