You can say that I’m a fan of Supergiant games after playing two wonderful projects of theirs; Bastion and Transistor. This year at PAX East they’re gracing us with their new project called Pyre.
Check out the reveal trailer below:
This is the third game being made by Supergiant Games. The elements you’ve come to know and love from Supergiant Games are ever-present in this trailer: a beautiful art style, interesting gameplay and wonderfully catchy and soulful soundtrack.
Pyre is a party-based role-playing game, which is a different direction for the company, at least in comparison to their first two games. You’ll lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory. The team brings in a rich atmosphere and a large cast of characters you can grow together as you journey through their beautiful landscapes.
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.
Pyre is coming to Steam and Playstation 4 in 2017.
Supergiant Games is bringing Pyre to PAX East and will be at booth #8212
