Krafton’s New Korean-Fantasy Game Confirmed Open-World

The data mining has affirmed the biggest fable surrounding the new title.

Krafton, the owner behind PUBG, is reportedly developing a new Korean-fantasy title, currently dubbed Project Windless. It is based on a famous fantasy novel, “The Bird That Drinks Tears.” The company acquired the rights to the book back in 2021, and since then, the development has remained shrouded until recently. 

A cinematic “visual concept trailer” has now been disclosed to the public, which features the expensive-looking Unreal Engine 5 CGI in all its glory. The official website still refers to the game as Unannounced Project, and the trailer does not clear the riddles enveloping the skeletal project.

Major Takeaway:

  • Krafton recently announced a concept trailer for its new Korean-Fantasy game, “Project Windless.” 
  • The metadata from the official website has reportedly assured that The Nhaga Eater features an open-world experience.
  • The platforms for the skeletal projects are also seemingly indicated in the metadata.

The latest concept trailer does not reveal much about the nature of the game. However, Krafton’s newly-revealed project was lightly rumored to be an open-world experience in the past.

job listing for an executive producer on the unannounced project did require knowledge to work on at least one narrative-driven single-player open-world game.

Project Windless is now confirmed to be based on the well-renowned open-world genre. The Metadata info mined by ResetEra user, Carmelozi finally answers the much-needed fable around the mysterious Korean-Fantasy-based game.

Krafton’s latest endeavor is verified to feature a detailed open world, as cited in the metadata scooped from the official website.

The metadata was dug from the official website.

The description section on lines 11 and 13 reads, “Announcing a new exciting project to create a whole new experience open-world game!” Moreover, “open world” is also mentioned in line 12’s “keywords” section. The job listings’ premonitions have confirmed that Project Windless is open world.

Another thing worth noting is that line 12 includes keywords like “pc game” and “console game,” basically hinting at the platforms where the multimedia project will supposedly release. It is unclear whether the project will only release for the next-gen or the current gen.

The alluring fantasy title is only in early development, and we may not get official confirmations for a year or two. The official website for the game reads regarding the descriptions,

It is a project that aims to impress game fans around the world by incorporating the original fantasy worldview of <Birds Drinking Tears>, a new race, and a beautiful and devastating narrative as a game experience.

The trailer uses the name, The Nhaga Eater, directed to Kagan Draca from The Bird That Drinks Tears novels. Kagan Draca is a prominent character in popular books who kills and consumes a fictional reptilian race dubbed “nhagas.” He is the character that appears in the trailer, fuming with immense fury as he beheads a nhaga in the trailer. 

This information must be taken with a slight grain of salt since the particulars of the website are prone to change. The game is in an early development phase, so plans are susceptible to alterations too.
