Microsoft is holding its Gamescom press briefing in Cologne, and the house of Xbox just showcased Scalebound by PlatinumGames. To accompany the announcement, we got some screenshots, artwork and an official fact sheet.
In Scalebound, the next great adventure from critically-acclaimed developer PlatinumGames and renowned Game Director Hideki Kamiya, you will experience the journey of a young loner, Drew, who is pulled into the strange, beautiful and dangerous world of Draconis. There Drew is bonded to a fearsome and noble dragon, Thuban, the last of his kind. These two, lone-wolf heroes thrown together by fate must learn to fight as one to defeat the powerful enemies that threaten Draconis, Earth and a vast universe of parallel worlds.
- Explore the beautiful and dangerous world of Draconis as you and your dragon companion work to defeat legions of enemy soldiers and epic scale beasts.
- Master accessible but deep “stylish action” gameplay. Fluidly chain attacks with your dragon to create devastating combos to unleash upon your foes.
- Adventure on your own or join forces with other players and their dragons to complete custom quests and battle massive creatures together…
- Choose your favorite dragon shape (winged serpent, four legged tank – and more) and then evolve your companion’s unique abilities and attacks as well as its appearance.
The game will release in the Holiday Season 2016, and will cost $59.99, £49.99 or €69.99 depending on your country.
