Supergiant Games has announced Pyre, the independent developer’s third game. The point of Pyre is to help a group of exiles make it through purgatory by participating in a competition referred to as the Rites.
Multiple exiles go through Pyre’s Rites for the opportunity to return their homes, blameless and sin-free. Your character travels with masked wanderers through Downside, hopefully working well enough with your three party members to defeat others in what appear to be strategic battles. Winners get a chance to redeem themselves, while the losers remain in this other realm.
Pyre will appear at Supergiant Games’ PAX East from April 22-24, 2016. It will appear on the PlayStation 4 and PCs in 2017.
