Deathbound hopes to redefine the genre when it launches this August 8th as the only soulslike where you enter combat as a party. Embark on an adventure with up to 4 heroes as you switch between them to gain the upper hand in combat and apply devastating strikes as a combined force.

You can check out Deathbound's release date reveal trailer below:

Deathbound is a party-based soulslike set in a harsh world where Faith clashes with Science. You cannot survive alone. 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.

By charging a shared sync meter during battles, you can unleash a Morphstrike combining the party's strength, crucial for overcoming deadly adversaries.

Deathbound launches on Steam on August 8th, 2024 for $29.99. You can download a demo right now on Steam. If you want to build up anticipation for the launch, you can join the official Deathbound Discord server.
