Bound by Flame's Heroes Take Center Stage in New Screenshots
Last week, publisher Focus Home Interactive released a combat trailer for Spiders' fantasy RPG Bound by Flame, which explained that the game's protagonist is a mercenary possessed by a Flame Demon with access to three skill trees: Warrior, Ranger, and Pyromancer. What it didn't explain was that you can customize said hero right from the start, choosing the "gender (which will affect some of the dialog, particularly with companions and potential romances), facial features, ethnicity and hairstyles." In addition, as touched upon in the aforementioned trailer, you'll also be able to find and craft armor to further change your appearance throughout the game, even down to minute details like shoulder pads and knee pads.
Lastly, the choices you make during the game can affect your appearance as well, particularly whether you accept or reject your Flame Demon's influence. Perform heroic actions, rejecting the inner demon, and you'll maintain some humanity. Allow yourself to be consumed by the demon's will and you'll become increasingly demonic and less human. The screenshots below show that these changes can be quite drastic.
Bound by Flame will be launching May 9, 2014, on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
