The lights are on
Bound By Flame was announced early last year, but since then has been mostly silent. Now developer Spider Studios is pulling back the veil of secrecy with the game’s first trailer and the announcement that the game will be coming to PlayStation 4.
Players step into this dark fantasy universe as a mercenary by the name of Vulcan, who through the course of the game becomes possessed by a flame demon. By either resisting the demon’s influence or letting the demon have its way, players can unlock new abilities for their character as they fight their way through an undead army.
In the announcement on PlayStation.Blog, game project manager Walid Miled says combat in the game features multiple combat styles. He goes on to say that every fight requires preparation and tactics such as sneaking, arming traps, or fighting from afar with magic. He doesn’t recommend charging head-first into battle: “Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an infiltration game," Miled says. "It’s just that we’ve made the fights hard and demanding. It’s no walk in the park.”
The game will also feature a robust crafting system, allowing for the customization of every piece of gear in the game, as long as players gather the necessary ingredients. Miled also promises monsters. Lots of big, scary monsters.
You can check out the game’s first official trailer below. Spider Studios is looking to release Bound By Flame between April and June of this year.

Looks pretty cool. I like how the combat looks like it flows nicely. I would like to see more of that demonic power they're talking about in action. I'll definetly keep my eyes open for this one. Seems like we're getting a lot of good RPGs this year. I'm calling it now: 2014, The Year of the RPG!
Looks like it could be fun.
Um, guys... it's been public knowledge that it's for PS4 since the announcement trailer. I remember them listing it back in 2013.
Sounds cool. I'll definitely keep this game in mind when I finally get a PS4.
Great another game to pre-order, my wife isnt gonna be happy lmao!!!
The Voice in the trailer isn't that bad.
That screen shot says it all for me. I am definitely enjoying the dark fantasy games that have been coming out. This is another piece of fuel to get a PS4.
Love these types of games! Looks very promising and has been on my radar for some time. Lose the voice over though. Well done otherwise.
I will be keeping my eye on this game.
This looks right up my alley. I hope it turns out great!
