There's one game this month you may have forgotten about…
It's Bound by Flame , the latest effort from developer Spiders, and it's coming to consoles and PC later this week. If you missed it, catch up by reading our recent preview .
An action/RPG with a heavy emphasis on hack 'n slash combat, you play as a mercenary who's possessed by a demon. That evil spirit within you grants you special powers, but every time you give in to the darkness, you lose a piece of your human soul. If you continue to use those powers, you will soon be consumed by darkness…but then again, maybe that's what you're going for.
Players can switch between Warrior and Ranger during battle; as you might expect, the Warrior lands devastating melee attacks via two-handed weapons, while the Ranger is quick and agile and can dual-wield daggers and other smaller weapons. The Ranger can even be stealthy at times. Will you simply use your human abilities or will you let the demon inside have his way?
Bound by Flame will be available on May 9 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
