Bound by Flame Runs At Native 1080p on PS4, Has A Variable 30-60 Frame Rate

Producer Walid Miled also explains the various fighting styles in the game.

Bound by Flame (1)

Bound by Flame is an upcoming fantasy-themed action role-playing game that will be released on May 9, 2014 across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. GamingBolt got an opportunity to interview to Spider Games’ Walid Miled, who is the producer of Bound by Flame.

Those interested in picking up the PS4 version of Bound By Flame will be interested to know that the game runs at native 1080p resolution with a variable frame rate from 30-60.

“Bound by flame runs on PS4 at a native 1080p with a frame rate ranging from 30 to 60 fps depending on how crowded the screen is with enemies,” Miled confirmed to GamingBolt.

Furthermore he also explained the different fighting styles in the game. “When starting the game, you do not pick between classes, you do that throughout the game by improving skill trees.There are 2 fighting styles. The 2 handed heavy weapons fighting style, “Warrior”, uses swords, hammers and axes. This fighting style can be compared to a tanked class. It has interrupt abilities, can do area damages and can break light shields. With this style you can push enemies to the ground and perform a charged area attack.”

“The double daggers fighting style, “Ranger”. This is a high speed, high DPS style made especially for hit and run and stealth. When stealthy you can backstab enemies for increased damages. We made sure that almost all of the fighting situations offer a stealth opportunity,” he explained.

We will have the full review of Bound by Flame in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more updates.

    This has been a common occurrence on PS4 games and I expect that it will be on most titles in the future. Pretty much anything that isn’t backbreakingly high end like the Order 1886 or something will likely be like this.

    • Michael Norris

      You are right,this game is a cross platform title.While Infamous/The order use next gen graphics engines.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Day ps4 power couldn’t pull a skin of a rice pudding

    • Michael Norris

      Learn how to type for Christ sake…

    • You are flat out wrong

      Dat perpetual whining about resolution from Xbots!

    • You are flat out wrong

      Dat overgrown virgin

    • ps4lol

      Your brain is made out of pudding.

  • Dennis Crosby

    I haven’t heard of this game until now seem interesting must be a indie title in guessing but wouldn’t it been easier to say it runs at a unlocked 60

  • Kevin Kirby

    More bouncing around unstable frame rates on PS4 LMFAO!!!

    • GameDev345

      eh its better than not being able to be stable at 30fps :)

    • Agent_Blade

      Better then struggling to run at 900p. Can just barely do 720p most times. Look at Titanfail, 792p, and it’s not even a constant 60fps either so nice try.

    • Kevin Kirby

      Titanfall runs buttery smooth and it’s going to be patched soon to a higher resolution. Have fun with Killflop and Delay Club oh wait LMFAO!!!

    • Agent_Blade

      Sad and pathetic that it has to have a patch to run at a higher resolution. And still can’t keep that framerate locked so try again. And what’s that?….Titanfall is the only reason worth buying a XB1 and it hasn’t even lived up to the hype? My god…and even though it’s a good game it’s not even worth a 400 to 500 dollar console. Hahahahaha! Admit it Titanfall is your only meal ticket for xbox fans!

    • Kevin Kirby

      Sorry bra but DR3, RYSE, Killer Instinct. Forza 5, Kinect Sports and Titanfall are a much bigger meal ticket then Killflop, Knack, and LOL Resgun. By the way Forza 5 is the only true exclusive on either system that is LOCKED 60fps and 1080p have a nice day you just got DESTROYED!!!

    • Agent_Blade

      DR3 was 720p at 30fps and can beat that in a day, while Infamous Second Son a open world game ran at native 1080p with higher then 30fps. Had copies of DR3 and Ryse already used 3 days after XB1 coming out at gamestop (Yes I do work for gamestop), Ryse was very subpar, great graphics but a not so amazing story and repetitive fights with repeat QT events that are cool at first but get stale very quickly and can beat the game in less then four hours (good game but not worth a 60 dollar purchase and certainly not worth a 500 game system).

      And Forza 5?….are you kidding me. The only thing good about that is graphics, Forza 4 and 3 was waaaay better. Forza 5 is nothing but a tech demo, missing alot of features that it’s predecessors. And the ONLY reason that it is locked at 60fps is because there are no other resources in the game (day and night cycle, weather, etc) which is lame that it doesn’t have that. Take Battlefield 4 for example, the only way they could get the game at 60fps AND enable it to have 64 players is to make it run at 720p.

      And there is no excuse for Tomb Raider to run at 30fps. And KI?… its a shame you brought that up. 720p graphics (which still lok pretty good), limited characters, no story, gets reptitive very quickly like most fighting games. Keep trying to justify your purchase man. Lots of butthurt in you…oh and Kinect Sports?….HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Whew…that’s was funny.

    • Kevin Kirby

      You just continue to confirm how useless it is talking to you. LMFAO!!! you also have confirmed how useless and pathetic Gamestop employee’s are LOL. So you mention Infamous let me DETROY you right now. Infamous was not over 30fps LOL in fact it could barley hit it and it just got a patch weeks after release to patch in an option to lock it at 30fps being you work at GameStop again your gaming knowledge is TRASH!!! Oh and LOL it’s ok get a tissue because Forza 5 >>> you sorry that you are whimpering over Delay Club and it is 60fps and 1080p with the best AI ever in a racer with the cloud hears your tissue. Oh and RYSE yup it’s the current GRAPHICS KING!!! Go home Sony Pony or I’ll keep owning you badly.

    • Agent_Blade

      Lmfao no, you just continue to confirm that you are a true Xbox fanboy and how sad and pathetic you are to listen to the BS that MS spews from their mouths to defend your console so badly. And yes Infamous do go higher then 30 fps. Not by a huge margin but it does but still goes higher. Check the FPS vids on youtube facts are there.

      And didnt need you to tell me we got a patch for it. Oh and btw dummy that patch does NOT lock it at 30fps just limits it at 30fps (Shows what you know). This just goes to show how uninformed of a Xbox fanboy are. You obviously just go by what your fellow fanboys tell you. I’m worried about you doing any “owning” I’m worried for you. You actually got your head so far up MS’ s a** it’s ridiculous.

    • Kevin Kirby

      LMFAO!!! Sucker Punch just confirmed themselves that POS4 has a slow bottleneck CPU LOL

    • Agent_Blade

      You just tried to do that…

    • Kevin Kirby

      No it’s true last week Sucker Punch came out and said the PSO4 CPU is slow and a bottleneck and it caused them some troubles in development.

    • J Dizzle

      You’re one of the most committed and dumbest xbots i’ve ever seen. What an embarrassment you are.

      Desperately going on the offensive to defend such great games as Dead Rising which in large action zones runs at a powerful 15fps.

      I wonder what defense you would have if i listed the countless games which run at higher resolution on PS4.

      COD, BF, Witcher, Thief, Tomb Raider, Trials, MGS, AC4.
      Try and tell me how much better the xbox is when it cant run any of those games at the same resolution as PS4.

      You talk up Forza running at 1080,60fps, how bout you tell us about the EXCLUSIVE TITANFALL, running at 790p, or RYSE running at 900p 30fps, or PvZ running at 900p, or Killer Instinct running at 720p

      Maybe you can tell us about the power of the cloud. Otherwise known as Dedicated Servers, which have existed for many years.
      Or the £100 price drop within the first 6 months to try catch PS4.
      Or the massive policy changes to try catch PS4.
      Or the Indie Game policy chance to try catch PS4.

      Buyers remorse has hit you hard son.
      You gotta let it go son.
      MS lost the race son.
      You done son.

    • Kevin Kirby

      Aww you Mad Bra? RYSE is the current graphics king so sorry deal with it. And DR3 is a great game and scored well in reviews and most people have had no troubles with it. Digital foundry confirmed that Thief even looks better on X1 same with Trials you see resolution is not everything because some and most X1 games have better textures just like BF4 does also so better textures >>> resolutions. You must be BUTTHURT that your playing Flopzone, Knack and Resgun I would be to if I had a indiestation 4 and Sony closing and dropping studios and IP’s.

    • wtfisthis

      Literally nothing you said was accurate.

      Killzone and Infamous both look better than Ryse (fact)

      Dead Rising 3 scored in the 70s on Metacritic (fact)

      Thief and Trials look better on the PS4 (fact)

      BF4 has better textures on the PS4 (fact)

      better texture + higher resolution > inferior texture and lower resolution (fact)

    • Kevin Kirby

      No sorry bro everything you said is WRONG you will see the latest Trials comparison you can clearly see X1 has better looking more detailed textures also look up Thief and BF4. You see you fall into the hype of oh boy just because it has better resolution must mean it looks better well in some cases it does not. Here I did Trials for you. Watch this and you can clearly see that the one on the right X1 looks slightly better and the one on the left the PS4 looks slightly more washed out. This has been the case for many games. Again just because it has better resolution in some games for PS4 does not mean it looks better as a whole. It’s because the DX render for X1 is the better graphics dev tool over Open GL on PS4. If you say that the video on the right does not look slightly better on X1 in Trials in the video I just showed you then your either a LIAR or BLIND!!!

      You are monstrously evil and stupid. Combining CONSTANTLY WRONG with malicious and evil fanboy behavior.

      Infamous is technically superior to Ryse in every way. 1080p, 35 fps average (according to DF), open world, next gen visual effects, cutscenes are mostly realtime, etc. YOU ARE WRONG AND HORRIFYINGLY EVIL AND STUPID.

      THIEF RUNS AT A HIGHER RES AND AVERAGE FRAMERATE ACCORDING TO DIGITAL FOUNDRY. YOU ARE WRONG AND HORRIFYINGLY EVIL AND STUPID.

      IT DOES NOT HAVE BETTER TEXTURES IN BATTLEFIELD 4 OR TRIALS FUSION. YOU ARE WRONG AND HORRIFYINGLY EVIL AND STUPID.

      SONY HASN’T CLOSED ANY STUDIOS THIS GEN. YOU ARE WRONG AND HORRIFYINGLY EVIL AND STUPID.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. PS4 will make a net profit, and Sony won’t go bankrupt.

      PS4 will have better performing games for the entire generation as it has more powerful hardware, you can’t overcome a hardware gap with better drivers/SDKs. Any game running on Xbox One can be run with better framerate/resolution/visual effects on PS4.

      PS4 has the superior version of all console AAA multiplats, The Order, Driveclub, MLB 14: The Show, Deep Down, Uncharted 4, TLOU Remake, more dev support including indies, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4.

      If they’re both running at the same resolution the Xbox version will have lower framerate and/or visual effects, or the PS4 hardware isn’t being pushed.

      Forza 5 looks like an upressed Forza 4 with nicer textures. Forza 5 on PS4′s factually superior hardware would look far better.

      Wow, look at your posts tardo – zero upvotes because you sound like an xbot tool. Take a break kid – you’re just embarrassing yourself right now…

    • mx439

      hmm. wow. 900p. That’s so far from 1080p. Like it makes a difference. The same people that are complaining and comparing graphics are the same ones that probably play pac man on their phones. Graphics aren’t everything. You people need to start thinking about gameplay aspects again. That’s what matters. See how far resolution gets you when the game sucks. Stop fussing at each other. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

      Aww your still butthurt that RYSE is the current graphics king and Infamous could barley hit 30fps so Sucker Punch released a patch to lock it at 30fps then also came out last week and said the POS4 CPU is a bottleneck and slow.
