Spiders Games is taking a break for the holidays but before they do, they have a new story trailer for their upcoming RPG, Bound by Flame. The plot seems like pretty typical fantasy fare but Spiders' art direction is once again what sets this game apart from the rest. Spiders released the flawed but ambitious Mars War Logs earlier this year so I'm eager to see what their experience and refined talent bring to Bound by Flame.
Bound by Flame, an Epic Story Trailer that will make the temperature rise
The Deadwalkers sweep through Vertiel on video!
Christmas is coming, and Bound by Flame is taking a little break from its final months in the development phase (title set for spring 2014 release) to offer us a scorching Epic Story Trailer! In this video, the most ambitious RPG to date from Spiders studios (Mars: War Logs, Of Orcs and Men) reveals more about the game world and background which will very soon enthrall players on PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360®
he new video once again provides an exciting glimpse into some of the extraordinary creatures in the vast bestiary in this role-playing game. The bestiary in Bound by Flame comprises some unique and impressive creatures, each with their own behavior, which makes the battles both tactically deep and spectacular.
The rich combat system in the game is matched only by the player's freedom of action; he will be confronted with numerous decisions and different choices throughout the quest that could dramatically change how the plot unfolds. The player is possessed by a flame demon and will face a constant dilemma: should he allow the demon to exert its influence to use its mighty powers of fire, or reject its influence and develop his own heroic skills? The alignment of the player between his demonic and human side will affect various game events, quests and his relationships with his many companions.
Bound by Flame will be released on PC, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360® in Q1 2014.About Bound By Flame
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. Real-time battles are impressive and dynamic. If the player begins the game knowing only the basics of combat, fire magic and assassination, he will be able to specialize by unlocking and improving many skills and powers through 3 different skill trees.
Bound by Flame lets the players customize their character. During the creation of their hero, players will be able to choose their gender and facial characteristics. This will of course have an influence on the demon's appearance. Bound by Flame also includes a crafting system, allowing players to create and improve equipment, including their armor and weapons. Several companions will join the player during his quest, and will, depending on the player's actions, develop friendship, romance or rivalry.
Finally, the bestiary of Bound by Flame is rich and spectacular. Players will get to fight many impressive creatures: shadow dragons, liches, undead, ice creatures... epic confrontations abound. Which path will the players take? Will they lust after the demon's power and magic to annihilate their foes, or will they favor their combat skills and their bravery?
