Horses will be essential to survival and safety as players breed horses, tame new ones and train them to aid them in their charting of the sprawling Mongolian landscape. As they immerse themselves into the game’s expansive open world full of wonders and intriguing tales, players will need to strategically plan their routes through different biomes of beautiful, yet harsh terrain, and master the challenges of the wilderness to complete their missions.

Building on the open world aspect the Windstorm games are known for, Windstorm: The Legend of Khiimori advances gameplay mechanics that are unique to the game’s core experience.
