Back at E3 2014 a game called Scalebound was announced via a cinematic trailer. Today at the Gamescom convention, the first gameplay demo for the game was shown to the world.
The game is a third-person action-adventure game that sees you teaming up with your very own dragon, kind of like How to Train Your Dragon but with a much bigger and scarier dragon than adorable little Toothless. If has a Dragon Age meets Monster Hunter sorta feel to it, based just on this gameplay preview. And in addition to the first look at gameplay, it was also revealed that the game will include four-player co-op, though you will still be able to play by yourself if that’s your preference.
