Suffering: Ties That Bind is a revolutionary action-horror game that emphasizes the disturbing terror of its predecessor, with all-new twisted creatures and a few familiar faces. Set in the slums and prisons of Baltimore , the player once again controls Torque as he seeks revenge against the mysterious grand manipulator Caleb Blackmore, a man somehow tied to the death of Torque's family. Players will explore the tough and unforgiving inner-city streets, with poverty and urban injustices trapping people just as effective as a physical prison. The unique morality system returns, as players delve into the perverse world of Torque's sanity to discover his past and struggle to control his future.

CHOOSE YOUR PATH – CHOOSE YOUR PLOT. Define the true story behind the nature of Torque's crimes and his journey into madness with game-defining moral choices that affect the game's outcome - each path providing a completely different gaming experience.

MASTER THE RAGE : New multi-leveled insanity mode is tied directly to players' actions, creating the most deadly weapon in the game - Torque's inner demon. This giant, horrific creature goes from normal to brutal and bloodthirsty depending on the moral path that players choose to follow.

A SEEDY, URBAN WORLD: Explore the gritty slums, streets, and prisons of Baltimore , battling urban injustices and demons spawned from historical events of urban squalor.

REFINED AND ENHANCED GAMEPLAY: Featuring a redesigned and streamlined inventory, expanded player movement mechanics, refined controls, more varied and advanced enemy AI and a large arsenal of weapons Ties that Bind melds big action sequences with visceral horror elements.
