Supergiant Games Announces Pyre, a Party-Based RPG for PS4 & PC

April 19, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

From Supergiant Games (Bastion, Transistor), Pyre is a party-based RPG coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in 2017.

In Pyre, you start the game by getting revived from the brink by some masked wanderers who seek to learn the truth about the Rites, a secretive competition where they worthiest exiles can return home. Throughout the journey in Pyre, you’ll travel across the Downside in the wanderers’ custom blackwagon, while also meeting a variety of different characters.

Supergiant Games adds:

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.

If you’re heading to PAX East this week, Pyre will be playable at booth #8212.
