Tate Multimedia and Trialforge Studio are excited to announce that Deathbound, the dynamic single-player party-based soulslike, will launch for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on August 8th. Form alliances with fallen warriors using the innovative 4-hero party system and band together to defeat appalling creatures and enemies.

Deathbound is a party-based soulslike set in a harsh world where Faith clashes with Science. You cannot survive alone; instead, you must refuse Death and embrace Ziêminal by bonding with fallen warriors encountered on your journey. Using a dynamic 4-hero party system, seamlessly transform between characters mid-combat to ensure survival. Success hinges on working together with your comrades, each possessing their own skills, combat techniques, and backstory.

The dynamics between these characters significantly impact gameplay, leading to different outcomes and status effects depending on your actions. For instance, aligning characters from the Church of Death and Cult of Life – two opposing factions within the vessel – will cause conflict and result in consequential combat effects. Alternatively, pairing fallen warriors with similar beliefs can lead to powerful combat buffs, perfect for taking down relentless foes along the way.

Despite their differences, the fallen must unite in combat. By charging a shared sync meter during battles, you can unleash a devastating Morphstrike combining the party's strength, crucial for overcoming deadly adversaries.

Brazilian-based developer Trialforge Studio is a small, 20-person team working on this ambitious take on the soulslike genre. The studio, making waves in the Brazilian indie scene, aims to deliver a high-quality experience with Deathbound at an approachable price of $29.99 USD / 29.99 EUR.
