Mars War Logs devs latest RPG going next-gen.

Bound by Flame, Mars War Logs developer Spider Studios’ new RPG for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, will also come to PlayStation 4, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

In the game, you play as a mercenary possessed by a flame demon, and have to choose between the powers offered by your host, or to keep your humanity and develop heroic talents instead. If you progress with demonic influence, it will show on the hero’s body. Depending on the your choices and the demon’s influence, some chapters will offer different scenarios. Companions will also join you on your journey, and allow you to develop friendships, romances, and rivalries.

Battles in Bound by Flame are real-time, and you can unlock and improve skills through three different skill tree sets. Character customization is also available, allowing you to choose your hero’s gender and facial characteristics. You can also create and improve equipment, including armor and weapons.

A release date was not announced. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.

    Only one next-gen platform? It’s rather odd that they skipped the Xbox One even though the game is also going to be available on the Xbox 360.

      Maybe they don’t want to pay for updates twice?

      • bloodiOS

        But there isn’t any update fee for indie devs anymore after Microsoft’s 180.

          How long can you trust a contract if they can break it so easily? It’s just weird, like that feeling when you know you shouldn’t buy something from a stranger off the street.

          • bloodiOS

            They trust it enough to go with the Xbox 360 so,… why not plunge further?

  • Budgiecat

    Next gen? Then why does the main character have a generic bald head?

    • Keegs79

      If that is in-game, it is better than current consoles.

      • Budgiecat

        I can’t tell. The hair folicles are too small to notice the details…

    • Willgaea

      You can add more details into the scalp of his shinny bald head.

    Now where did this come from? ><!

    Nice screen shot. It’s weird how 1 screen shot could make me want to buy a game.
