The new launch trailer for Bound by Flame gives us tidbits on the game's story and an intro to the flame demon within the hero's body.

What do you do when the land is being torn asunder by the undead and other demonic forces? Well, if you're the protagonist of Bound by Flame, you choose whether or not to unleash the demon residing in your body or suppress him. On the one hand, you'll be capable of inflicting lots of pain and punishment on your enemies. On the other hand, your friends will probably be affected by your demonic state. Decisions, decisions.

Whether or not you choose to utilize the demon within will affect your physical appearance and abilities in battle. If you choose to suppress it, you'll be able to retain your humanity and become more heroic as a result. In the end, it all comes down to choice in Bound by Flame, which will become available on May 9, 2014 on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360.
