A Quick Primer on Bound by Flame


Info about Bound by Flame has been coming along at a slow burn since the game’s unveil early last year, but since the recent launch of the official website pre-release hype has started to catch fire. Finally, we are beginning to get a clear understanding of Spiders’ vision for the dark fantasy RPG.

Our latest look inside the world of Vertiel presents a quick but thorough overview of the basic game mechanics, including things like the player character’s human/demon duality, the crafting system, the skill tree choices, and the combat system. Mars: War Logs players will notice many core engine similarities, but Bound by Flame is definitely aiming to push the boundaries even further.

Stay tuned for a more in-depth look at the game’s battle system in the weeks ahead as Bound by Flame development burns on toward a Q2 launch on PC, PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360.
