Demonic RPG Bound by Flame is coming to PlayStation 4 alongside its previously announced platforms PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, developer Spiders Studios confirmed. The game allows players to develop heroic talents based either on their own human abilities or, alternatively, powers made available by the demon that possesses the protagonist. Under demonic influence, the player's character will be physically transformed, while depending on choices made in-game some chapters will offer different scenarios. Spiders Studios is a development team built by a number of French industry veterans who previously worked on the development of Silverfall. The studio is probably best known for its work on The Testament of Sherlock Holmes and Mars: War Logs.

Focus Home Interactive has released a new video giving an overview of the story and basic systems in its upcoming downloadable RPG Mars: War Logs. Jehanne Rousseau, CEO of development studio Spiders, introduces viewers to the world of Mars. A century after the Martian colonists were isolated from Earth, water has become a precious resource and a main source of conflict. Protagonist Roy Temperance's guild Abundance has been defeated by its rival Aurora, and he is now a war prisoner.
