Supergiant Games, the studio behind indie role-playing games “Bastion” and “Transistor”, just announced their next project called Pyre, which is set to be released in 2017 and come to both PlayStation 4 and Windows PC simultaneously. The fantasy game stars a group of exiles in purgatory who compete against other refugees for freedom.
“We’re incredibly excited to announce Pyre, a new party-based role-playing game we’re making here at Supergiant,” the company writes on their blog. “Pyre once again showcases our team’s commitment to rich atmospheric presentation and storytelling, along with a distinctive gameplay blend that combines expressive decision-making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups of exiles whose own freedom is at stake.”
So, what’s it all about? “At the beginning, 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.” Sounds good, can’t wait.
