Transistor Studio Supergiant Games Unveils New RPG Pyre


Supergiant Games, creative minds behind such critically-acclaimed RPGs as Bastion and Transistor, has introduced its brand new title Pyre, which is on course to hit PS4 and PC at some stage in 2017.

Taking to PlayStation Blog, the studio’s Creative Director Greg Kasavin outlined the stylish and party-based RPG. It’ll revolve around a group of exiles trapped in purgatory who challenge other refugees in the fight for freedom. Players will be divided into teams, too, though one false step and you’ll be doomed to purgatory for the rest of your days.

Playable at Boston’s PAX East event – due to take place from April 22 to April 24 – Supergiant noted that “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.”

Pyre has been pegged for a simultaneous release across PS4 and PC in 2017. While we await further details on Supergiant’s latest creative effort, you can gaze longingly at the striking first images, below.
