If you are a fan of Bastion or Transistor, the critically acclaimed action role playing games by Supergiant Games, you will be siked to know that these guys are at it again; Pyre the game is their latest adventure.
The newly announced game is basically a party based role playing game featuring a group of exiles and aa mystical purgatory – what else could you ask for!
In Pyre, you lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory.
Pyre the game builds heavily on Supergiant Games’ ability to craft out incredible storytelling and a rich atmosphere. The few images that they have shared on the game’s page as well as the reveal trailer above are promising enough on that regard too.
The “distinctive gameplay” of the title is going to be another key selling point with a “blend that combines expressive decision-making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations.” Here’s the story so far:
At the beginning of the game, your luck has almost run out when several masked wanderers find you and revive you from the brink. With your help, they seek to learn the truth about the Rites, a secretive competition through which the worthiest exiles can return home, absolved of their transgressions. As you journey across the Downside in the wanderers’ custom blackwagon, you’ll meet a variety of characters of all shapes and sizes, and learn what’s in store for each of them should they prevail in the Rites. Your actions will determine who returns to glory, and who remains in exile to the end of their days.
Supergiant Games has confirmed that they are not going to stray from what has been their convention in terms of release platforms – sorry Xbox One – and that Pyre the game will be released to PC and PS4 “in 2017.”
