Rooted in the rich traditions of Chinese history, players can learn and experience the essence of Wuxia martial arts during their adventures and use them as the fundamental means for open-world exploration and problem-solving.

Taking Tai Chi as an example, this technique focuses on redirecting the opponent's force and using softness to defeat strength. In the game, players can find solutions that achieve great results with minimal effort. For instance, using a waterfall's force to break through a solid wall or gathering scattered leaves to unleash surprising power. Even in tough battles, players can use the opponent's own force against them or use their weapons to gain an advantage.

High-quality, realistic, and rich cultural landscapes, real-time weather and lighting rendering, intricate details, and lifelike interactions provide a wholly immersive experience.

Where Winds Meet features original Wuxia combat with diverse weapons and skills, allowing their character to master the precision of Chinese martial arts. Players can engage in close-quarters combat using Spear, Long Swords, Twin Blades, Broadsword, and fans, or utilize a bow for ranged attacks.

They can also choose to ally with different Wuxia factions, each with its special martial skills. Alternatively, players can choose not to join any factions, yet still can learn the special martial skills of each.

Where Winds Meet lets players experience different points of interest inspired by Chinese traditions and historical fiction. They can even engage in exotic mini-games such as playing traditional instruments, playing Chinese chess or playing a game of Touhu, to name but a few.
