The development team responsible for the beloved games Bastion and Transistor, Supergiant Games, has announced their next game today. The game is called Pyre and is described as a party-based RPG that has you wander through a “mystical purgatory” with other exiles while competing with others for the ability to return home.
Supergiant Games provides the following plot synopsis for the game:
“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.”
Pyre is set to launch in 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PC, though you can check out the reveal trailer for the game via the video below.
