Bound by Flame’s developer, Spider Studios, revealed on their blog that the fantasy RPG will be released on May 9 for PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. There is no word on when/if it will be released for Xbox One.

“The bestiary you will confront in Bound by Flame is impressive, rich and varied. Conceived and brought to life by the talented teams at Spiders studios, these creatures are as terrifying as they are deadly, and will do their utmost to make your life hell in spectacular, real-time and highly tactical battles. And just how they do that is revealed in the six new screenshots we urge you to check out now!
The strategic depth of the combat system in Bound by Flame has been made possible mainly through the variety and originality of the game bestiary. Each creature has its specific attacks, special skills and, in particular, individual behavior that will force the player to adapt his tactics and combat style depending on the composition of the groups of enemies he encounters. This, combined with the awesome range of strikes available to the player, the use of magic and the incredible combat animations, contributes to make the battles in Bound by Flame both tactically complex and visually stunning.”

Everyone keeps talking about the dead period between inFAMOUS: Second Son and Destiny, which is an exaggeration. There are plenty of big titles confirmed between them and Bound by Flame just became another! I have been really excited for this game since I watched the trailer last year. The only problem with this release date for me is that it is right around my college’s finals week.
