He will have to survive harsh terrain, a war-torn country, and strange creatures within the mythical realm of Roshar, a land where storms of incredible power frequently tear through and reshape the land. Fortunately, Kaladin is not facing the Shattered Planes alone. With the fairy-like Syl as their guide, players will have to survive an unrelenting tempest on the Shattered Plains, learn to harness the magical power of stormlight, and do battle with with both mystical beasts and the sinister Parshendi warriors.
