Two exciting narrative role-playing games are making their way to the Stadia store for purchase! Windbound is a survival-crafting, RPG-adventure arriving August 28 that tasks a lone heroine on an odyssey across the shores of sprawling islands and seas to find her way home. Cris Tales offers the chance to enter a world inspired by classic JRPGs, with hand-drawn 2D animations and turn-based combat. Cris Tales arrives on the Stadia store on November 17.

Windbound
Developer: 5 Lives Studios
Publisher: Deep Silver

As Kara, you are a warrior, caught at sea in a fierce storm and adrift from your tribe. Thrown from your boat and at the mercy of the turbulent waters, you are tossed on to the shores of the Forbidden Islands, a mysterious paradise. Shipwrecked alone, you must explore, adapt, and navigate the land and perilous seas to stay alive.

Features:

  • Uncover the Secrets Within - Embark on a personal journey and discover the history of the idyllic Forbidden Islands; each holding the key to a mystery and unexpected revelations.
  • Explore As Far As The Eye Can See - Head towards the horizon, advancing across the islands, each with their own diverse wildlife, landscapes and challenges to face.
  • Live Off The Land - Scavenge the islands’ untamed terrain for resources that you can use to craft a full range of tools and weapons to hunt wildlife and upgrade your boat. You must set sail when resources become scarce.
  • Build Your Perfect Seacraft - Your boat is a key companion on your journey. Carefully craft your own custom sailing vessel to take on the treacherous waters, traversing from one island to the next. Design your boat to battle tempestuous winds, monstrous waves, and dangerous sea creatures.

 

Cris Tales

RPGs? I'm HYPED! Keep them coming, pretty please! ❤️

 

PS: I hope Square Enix bring more Final Fantasy titles to Stadia. FF XV was my first purchase and first game to complete in the platform and I absolutely ADORE it.

Hyped too. Keep up the good work.

But really my style game but always exciting to see more games that people so enjoy come to Stadia!

 

 

Maybe I'll still give them a try

Cyberpunk 2077 is a highly anticipated RPG that was supposed to come to Stadia this year ... is it no longer confirmed for 2020?

Community Member

@SnarkNerd  the devs said later this year.  So, maybe...

Great, but what about Star Wars Squadrons? Why is it not coming?

Windbound looks a bit Zelda-esk...will probably give that a try!

pretty weird games....

Know what I'm looking forward to? GTA Online next gen coming to Stadia where the online world is completely limitless and has to potential to include more cities with ever expanding abilities.

Honestly, I haven't heard anything. But I feel like it's inevitable and will make way too much money for Rockstar to overlook.
