Motion Twin unveils Windblown during The Game Awards

The studio behind the highly popular Dead Cells revealed their next project during this year’s Game Awards. Much like Dead Cells, Windblown is a fast-paced rogue-like adventure players can traverse either solo or cooperatively. We will have to wait a little while to get our hands on it as Windblown will enter Early Access on Steam sometime next year. Full details can be found below and stay tuned to GamingTrend for more coverage of The Game Awards!

In Windblown, players become Leapers – warriors fighting to protect their home, The Ark, from the gigantic and deadly Vortex and its Sentinel minions. Like a bolt of lightning, players will freely dash through stunning open stages where each run is teeming with secrets to uncover. Players will be challenged to overcome the odds in relentless battles against the Vortex’s Sentinels, hell-bent on taking them down and starting their run anew.

Leapers absorb the memories of the fallen warriors who came before, learning how to master the fighting styles of their predecessors to unleash their full potential. Players will swap between multiple weapons and adapt to every situation by shifting their build on the fly as they progress through vibrant, layered environments. As players unlock more memories, they will be able to collect stronger and more complex weapons that will turn them into the ultimate killing machine.

Additionally, players can choose to go it alone or unite in online three-player co-op play throughout their adventures. Windblown’s combat is tough but always fair – every run is a lesson, so learn from your countless deaths, memorize enemy movements and leap back into action stronger than ever.

“We were craving a lightning-fast combat roguelite, but it simply didn’t exist,” says the team at Motion Twin, based in France. “So, we rolled up our sleeves and crafted the game we yearned for; one that lets us dive into the action on our own, and with friends, whenever the mood (or too much pain) strikes!”

Windblown will launch in 2024 on Steam Early Access. Fans can Wishlist the game now and follow development updates in the months ahead via the Windblown community page, including opportunities to test the game and provide valuable feedback to the developers at Motion Twin in upcoming beta tests.
