Combining a high-fantasy medieval forest setting and creatures (such as a massive dinosaur-like creatures and a dragon) with the futuristic sensibilities of a game like Crysis, we saw an unnamed, bleach-blonde protagonist wield a sword while wearing headphones around the collar of his jacket. Using a Crysis-like bow, it looked as though the monsters our protagonist were facing were more interested in each other, opening up unique gameplay possibilities.

Scalebound will be released exclusively on Xbox One.
