Pyre is a new party-based RPG from Supergiant Games, the indie studio behind the acclaimed Bastion and Transistor.
Announced for release in 2017 for Steam and making its console debut on PS4, Pyre sees players lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition across a vast, mythical purgatory. Gameplay promises to blend "expressive decision making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups of exiles".
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 at stake 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.
If you happen to be at PAX East this week then you'll be able to get hands-on with the game.
