Last week at GamesCom, a new RPG from Spiders Studio was revealed for the PlayStation 3. Today, it has been confirmed that the aforementioned RPG, Bound by Flame, will also be heating things up on Sony's next-gen platform, the PlayStation 4. The release is currently scheduled for an early 2014 launch.
In Bound by Flame, you'll play as a mercenary, who, for some reason, has been possessed by a flame demon. Don't you just hate it when that happens? You'll have the option of succumbing to the demon's evil powers, or playing the hero. However, the dangers and enemies that you'll face along your journey will make those handy demonic powers ever more tempting by the day. Like Fable, the choices that you make in the game will affect your character's physical appearance, so you'll have to choose wisely whether or not you want to give in to your host's tempting dark skills.
The battles will take place in real-time and consist of three forms of combat – fire, magic, and assassination – which can be expanded and improved with techniques and powers by unlocking the corresponding skill trees. The title will also include character customisation, a crafting system, and AI companions, who may, depending on your actions, become friends, love interests, or rivals.
