Focus Home Interactive has announced Bound by Flame, the next project from Spiders Studio, for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in 2013.
“Which path will the players take? Will they lust after the demon’s power and magic to annihilate their foes, or will they favour their combat skills and their bravery?” reads the press release.
An action role-playing game, Bound by Flame sees players assume the role of a mercenary possessed by a flame demon. As a victim of this demonic influence, players will be tasked with choosing between the powers offered by evil or to reject them, developing heroic talents instead.
Throughout our hero’s adventure temptations will present themselves periodically, leading to players contemplating gaining more power by giving up a part of his soul to the demon. The progression of the demonic entity’s possession will be reflected by the transform of the hero’s body.
It will feature “impressive and dynamic” real-time battles that will provide replayability to the game. In addition, Bound by Flame will allow the player to customize their character.
The “ambitious Dark Fantasy universe” has been “under development for months”, whilst another part of Spiders Studio finishes development on Mars Wars Logs, of which is soon to be released.
Bound by Flame is out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC “at the end” of 2013.
