Gameplay and setting
Where Winds Meet looks like it’s set in a fantasy version of Ancient China where magic and mythical creatures exist. The playable character can be seen doing some standard sword-fighting but also uses some special abilities that freeze time or blast enemies across the map. The game is set in a vast open world and towns seem to also have an element of social stealth, as at one point, the character is spotted by enemies and needs to make a run for it.
This setting reminded us of Wo Long: Fallen Kingdom, but the photoreal gameplay resembled Assassin’s Creed or Sekiro, especially when the character was running along the rooftops or exploring the world. We don’t know much about the lore at this stage, but the game looks like it involves an epic quest around a lush fantasy version of China, blending historical events with more fantastical elements.
