I'm 8 hours in and I have yet to see strong wind NOT blowing and bending trees and bushes like crazy.
So far I'm not impressed with this game, it doesn't feel like an RPG but just another open world game with busy work activities. It feels like the original game from 2007 but more technically advanced and with more stuff to do.
So why you do the "busy work activities" ? You can just do all of the storyquests and it will still be a very lengthy awesome game.
