Scalebound – Xbox One Exclusive Gameplay Revealed

Scalebound is the next game from developer Platinum Games, responsible for fast paced high octane action such as Vanquish and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. After first being revealed at E3 in 2014 with a slick looking CGI trailer, the first look at gameplay was presented at Gamescom 2015.

You can see from the gameplay video below that this game will feature melee based combat, reminiscent of Devil May Cry, and a giant dragon that you control to do your bidding. The similarities between Scaledbound and Devil May Cry don’t stop with combat, the main character seems to have been inspired by the series. He has a cocky attitude, mysterious powers and a love for putting on headphones before a battle. Much like Nero’s demon arm, the main character has what appears to be a scaled arm which I am sure will play a pivotal role in the story.

What was not shown in the trailer is whether the dragon is a playable feature or a simply an ally that is commanded to complete certain actions. This is certainly a feature that everyone wants to see and could be what distinguishes this game from other third person action games.

What did you think of the Scalebound gameplay reveal? Are you as excited to play it now the gameplay has been revealed? Let me know in the comments below.
