It’s worth it | “Bound By Blades” Covered By Assemble Entertainment, Coming To PC In Q4, Nintendo Switch In 2023


The war for supremacy has raged for generations between the different tribes of Ashmyr. Until one day an ancient force was unleashed that shook the world and granted those nearby immense power. But this power has come at a cost. It took their minds and corrupted their bodies, leaving only a ruthless demon in their place.

They became known as the Ilcyon, slaying armies and wiping out cities as they ravaged the lands, leaving Ashmyr in peril. Until a new path to hope is formed by a lone warrior. He united the tribes to survive against the Ilcyon and started a new order, The Bound. Only those who have proven themselves through years of rigorous training have been initiated.

Told through an enchanting digital sketchbook art style, follow young Bound on his journey to Ashmyr to learn about the beginnings of the vile Ilcyon and other mysterious entities.

Slay big monsters, collect loot, and craft upgrades to take on the next massive beasts. Join up with friends or take on the challenges alone. But even on your own, you can bring in friend characters as NPCs as well as your very own battle pet to help you out against the toughest foes that lie ahead.

Bound By Blades is designed for gamers of all calibers and is meant to allow any adventurer to embark on this challenging journey. The controls are designed to be comfortable and intuitive for all control schemes. Play with a controller, keyboard and mouse, mouse or even just a keyboard. BBB is designed for players of all types and is intended to allow any adventurer to embark on this difficult journey.

The combat system is vast and allows for a variety of attacks like quick attacks, power attacks, combos, and unique combo finishers.
