Bound by Flame Catches Fire on PlayStation 4


Previously announced only for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Bound by Flame is now officially also in development for PlayStation 4. All versions are scheduled to release in early 2014.


It’s been a handful of months since the original announcement, so to refresh Bound by Flame is the next RPG epic from Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs developer Spiders. The game is about a mercenary who becomes possessed by a demon of fire. It will be up to players to decide how to develop their character, either by succumbing to the fiery influence to gain demonic powers or maintaining humanity to build heroic talents, with choices in progression to reflect in the transformation of the hero’s body throughout the adventure. Choices will also have consequences that alter how chapters of the story unfold and influence relationships with party members.


Gameplay will consist of a real-time battle system complimented by a set of three skill trees to specialize in skills of combat, fire magic and assassination. A robust crafting system will also allow for the creation and upgrading of new weapons and armor.


As with all Spiders game, Bound by Flame has a signature visual style best showcased by the game’s extensive bestiary of fearsome creatures. The new screenshots on this page should give you an idea of how terrifying and richly detailed the monsters will be.
