Supergiant Games will return to PAX East this weekend with their third game, Pyre. Set to be released in 2017 for the PC and PS4, Pyre is a party-based RPG that combines “expressive decision-making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups.”
Supergiant is attempting to build another unique and interesting world for Pyre, and a small glimpse at that world can be seen in the trailer embedded above. The developer also a bit more ato say bout the mystery at the heart of the story on their official website:
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 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.
As with Bastion and Transistor, Pyre will feature original music written by Darren Korb, with vocals performed by Korb and Ashley Barrett. A video for “In the Flood,” the song featured in the trailer, can be found after the break.
