Krafton's upcoming Unreal Engine 5 title based on The Bird That Drinks Tears gets its first in-engine trailer, showcasing spectacular visuals.

Following the official announcement of a brand new game codenamed Project Windless , which is based on the acclaimed Korean fantasy novel “The Bird That Drinks Tears” by Yeongdo Lee, Krafton have shared the first look at the game via a visual concept trailer made in  Unreal Engine 5.

The trailer doesn't reveal much. It starts by showing us a male warrior slaying a female character who seems to be begging for her life. The next shot gives us a glimpse of the game's lush and gorgeous rainy jungle, which could be one of the locations we'll get to visit. The trailer then starts going backwards in time, revealing the aftermath of what appears to be a big battle in the same jungle. 

It ends with a shot that is almost identical to the one at the very beginning when the warrior beheads the female character. All in all, pretty mysterious and that is probably intended since the trailer's main goal is to showcase the visual style of the game rather than introduce us to the story and characters. 

Krafton confirmed earlier that they've hired concept artist Ian McCaig to visualise the game. McCaig previously worked on Star Wars, The Avengers, Harry Potter and Terminator franchises so it's safe to say that the game is in safe hands. 

So far, the details are pretty scarce so we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out more including the genre, whether this is a first-person or a third-person game, the actual scope of the project and everything other details

Project Windless is currently in full production and it will probably take a while before we get to see actual gameplay and reveal. Keep in mind that the game still does not have an official name, so it may take years until its release date. 

Krafton are yet to confirm the release platforms too but we assume the game will come to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
