Pyre is the new RPG from Bastion developer


Called Pyre is a party-based RPG coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017.

Supergiant says it’ll offer the “rich atmospheric presentation and storytelling” it’s made a name for itself with, as well as “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,” the developer explains on its website.

Here’s how it sets up the story: “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.”
