Focus Home Interactive today unveiled a new video for Bound by Flame, an action/role-playing game in the works at Spiders Studio and due to arrive in Europe on May 9th, for PC, PS4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Bound by Flame lets you play a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. As a victim of this demonic influence, players will have to choose between the powers offered by their host, or to keep their humanity, developing heroic talents instead. Dangers and enemies, becoming more terrifying and fearsome in battle, will be temptations to acquire more power by giving up part of the hero's soul to the demon. Progression of the demonic influence will be reflected by the transformation of the hero's body. Depending on the choices made by the player and the influence of the demon, some chapters will offer different scenarios and a different experience, adding important replayability to the game.
The video comprises numerous gameplay sequences and a detailed commentary describes the combat system and game mechanics that work in synergy: from the various options available to the player in the skill trees (Warrior, Ranger and Pyromancer) to choosing your companions, the variety in the impressive bestiary, the crafting system that enables you to customize your equipment and the player's human/demon duality, which will have a strong influence on your combat strategy.
Bound by Flame will be distributed in North America by Majesco Entertainment Company.
