Supergiant Games Announced Pyre for PS4, Steam
A journey shall be made.
04.21.16 - 1:40 AM

The developer of Bastion and Transistor, Supergiant Games, has announced a brand-new "party-based role-playing game" called Pyre. The game will be released simultaneously on PlayStation 4 and Steam in 2017, and will feature a group of exiles that make their way across a vast purgatory while participating in an ancient competition known as the Rites. The game will feature a "rich atmospheric presentation" we've come to expect from Supergiant's past work, along with "expressive decision-making on the world map" and "fast, action-packed confrontations" against other groups of exiles. You can check out an initial plot synopsis and announcement trailer below.


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.
