Fantasy RPG Bound by Flame Arriving May 9
Publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced that fantasy RPG Bound by Flame will be released on May 9, 2014, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game is being developed by Spiders, the French indie developer behind RPGs Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs.
The press release states that, "The bestiary you will confront in Bound by Flame is impressive, rich and varied," and you can certainly see the variety and originality in the six new screenshots shown below. Creatures have their own specific attacks, special skills, and individual behavior that require players to learn and adapt, using both melee and magic to defeat them. This certainly doesn't seem like a hack-and-slash RPG, but rather one that will require strategy and tactics to succeed; which will certainly lead to comparisons to Dark Souls.
While the trailer below does show off some combat, a video dedicated to the combat system should be arriving in the coming weeks.
