Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
Supergiant Games today announced their third game, Pyre. The game is playable at PAX East.
Pyre is a new party-based role-playing game from the masterminds behind, Bastion and Transistor. Pyre will be available in 2017 and will launch simultaneously on Steam and the PlayStation 4. Check out the game’s first trailer:
About the Game:
In Pyre, you lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory.
Pyre once again showcases Supergiant Games’ 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. The developers want to create a large cast of characters you can grow close to as you travel together across a strange and wondrous land.
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.
Platforms and Availability:
Pyre will be available in 2017. Like Transistor, it will launch simultaneously on Steam and the PlayStation 4.
