Huge news out of PAX East today, Supergiant Games has announced their new title, Pyre. And for the first time, you will be playing as more than one character. This will be their first party based RPG title. After the quality of both Bastion and Transistor, you can bet that this one is going to be another interesting experience. From the developer:
In Pyre, you lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory.
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.
Pyre will be available sometime in 2017 and, like Transistor, it will release simultaneously on PS4 and Steam. More details will follow, but there is a trailer and some initial screenshots.
This has me very excited, and will probably be the best announcement from PAX for me. How about everyone else? Keep checking back at Operation Rainfall, I’ll definitely be keeping up to date on this title.
