Pyre Announced By Supergiant Games

From the makers of Bastion and Transistor comes a new project.

Based on what they show in the trailer, it’s a new twist on their artistic style. Much more of an old fashioned fantasy setting, but with the same visual motif as Transistor.

The website gives more detail about what to expect. In Pyre you’ll lead exiles across a mystical realm of purgatory. You’re revived from the brink of death by wanderers, who teach you about the Rites – a competition that gives a chance for exiles to get back home. Traveling across the Downside, you have to make decisions that determine who will find glory and who will remain in banishment.

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. We want to create a large cast of characters you can grow close to as you travel together across a strange and wondrous land.

Supergiant will be bringing the game to PAX East this week. The game will release simultaneously on PS4 and Steam in 2017.
