Supergiant Games Reveals New Game Pyre

/ Apr 20th, 2016 No Comments

Supergiant Games announced their latest game to be released in 2017. Pyre is a party-based role-playing game being developed for PlayStation 4 and Steam.

The developer released a reveal trailer for the game and a bit details regarding the game’s story. Like Transistor and Bastion, Pyre will feature the developer’s atmospheric presentation and stroytelling combined with fast-paced action-RPG gameplay.

Unlike Supergiant’s previous games, Pyre has you commanding a team of characters where you face off against rival bands of exiles with each party’s freedom on the line. Pyre will have character building as your team bonds as they journey through “the Downside”.
 

Pyre

In Pyre, you’ll come across a wide variety of characters.

The game begins with the main character near death, a wandering group of masked individuals come across you and revive you. After you join the group you help them learn more about the Rites, a secret competition where the worthiest band of exiles can return home.

You’ll journey through a purgatory-like land call the Downside in a custom blackwagon, which will act as your home during the game. During your journey you’ll meet a wide variety of characters and learn what’s at stake should they find salvation in the Rites. It’ll be up to you to decide who gets to go home and who must remain an exile in the Downside for eternity.
 

Pyre

The gameplay of Pyre is still a bit of mystery, but it looks like it’ll be two teams of three facing off and angling to throw an orb into the opposing team’s pyre.


PAX East attendees can try out Pyre at Supergiant’s booth (#8212) on April 22-24 and let them know what you think about the new game on Twitter.

Pyre will be available in 2017 on PS4 and Steam with more information to come.

Reveal Trailer

Quick Take

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Supergiant Games following the 2014 release of Transistor. With PAX East coming up, much like Transistor, it was the perfect time for the developer to announce a new game. Pyre looks to continue Supergiant’s fondness of playing around with role-playing conventions and story. The party-based aspect should result in deeper character development over the course of the game.

While the trailer hints at the gameplay, there seems to be a soccer-like set-up with two teams angling to throw an orb into the other side’s bonfire. It’ll be interesting to see what people make of it when they get their hands on it this weekend. Once again the music in the reveal trailer is fantastic and Pyre should give Darren Korb another opportunity to create some wildly compelling music.

It’ll be an agonizing wait for Pyre’s release in 2017, but we’re big fans of Supergiant’s work here at Gaming Illustrated so we’re excited to learn more new information.
