With the upcoming release of Bound by Flame, a new action-RPG from developers Spiders Studio, the team has released a number of screenshots showing the companions that will accompany players on their journey. There’s a certain variety to all of these companions’ skills that make a lot of room for creativity in your strategies. Just as well, the relationships players develop with these characters will have some impact on the game’s narrative, not unlike the character interaction system from Mass Effect and Dragon Age.
Check out the gallery below to see the aforementioned characters, including lady with awesome hair, man with awesome beard, and a skeleton. Those aren’t their full names, but they should be. In actuality, they are Sybil the healing mage, Randval the hand-to-hand badass, Rhelmar the standard elven archer, Mathras the undead swordsman, and Edwen, who likes her magic like she likes her metal… Black.
Both pretty and ambitious, Bound by Flame seems to definitely be a game to look out for when it releases next week on May 9th for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
