Windborne is a new game that is said to be a social featured MMO with sandbox elements. During PAX Prime, we took time to check out Windborne and have an exclusive preview to share. Read on before heading to the comments to chat.
Windborne is a described as a creation sandbox game with social features. Players will each get a floating island that they can explore and build on and dig under to build there too. The island is a wilderness with some old ruins and populated by feral creatures and some sentient creatures called Jin. The world and the graphics reminded me of Japanese animator and film maker; Hayao Miyazaki’s works in some of the whimsy and landscapes, and the island is huge. A player could simply play this as a single player game and never visit other player islands but spend his days exploring, building and doing quests to help the Jin. However it is a social game and players helping each other will be able to accomplish things faster, much like in Minecraft.
