Pyre, Supergiant’s Third Game, Coming Next Year

Pyre, Supergiant’s Third Game, Coming Next Year

Supergiant Games is probably one of my favorite developers in recent memory. Both of their previous games Bastion and Transistor were a blast, with Transistor being my number one game of 2014. Needless to say I like to keep an eye on their new projects, and it looks like a new one is incoming.

Announced as a post on their website, Supergiant revealed Pyre, a “party-based role-playing game” coming to both Steam and PS4. In Pyre you “lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory”.

The scale of the project appears to be somewhat larger than both Bastion and Transistor in terms of characters and world-building, with the latter being expected from Supergiant.

With the announcement is a trailer and some screenshots to help you get a feel for the style Pyre is going for. That said, the action-RPG/arena combat is a bit hard to read. Since it is a reveal trailer, I’ll let the game’s vagueness slide, but I hope to see some substance soon.

For those going to PAX East, your chance to take a look will be much sooner that you think, as Supergiant will have a playable demo at their booth.

Pyre will be coming to PC and PlayStation 4 in 2017. That’s as accurate as we can get for now, but considering the similar approach Transistor’s reveal had before PAX East 2013, we may see it in the spring.
