Pyre

From the team that created Bastion and Transistor, Pyre is a party-based RPG in which you lead a band of exiles to freedom through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory. Follow the stars toward a series of celestial landmarks, then guide your fellow exiles to glory through action-packed, tactical confrontations against adversaries whose own freedom is at stake.

 
 
 
 

Game

Overview

Exile is Not the End

Pyre showcases Supergiant's commitment to rich atmospheric presentation and storytelling, along with a distinctive gameplay blend that combines expressive decision-making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups of exiles who would prevail at any cost. Each victory (or defeat!) brings your exiles closer to achieving enlightenment, as they gain access to new abilities that let you further customize your playstyle. You'll meet a large cast of characters of all shapes and sizes as you travel across a strange and wondrous land.

The Story So Far

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.

Challenge a Friend

On top of the single-player campaign, Pyre features a two-player head-to-head Versus Mode, where you can challenge a friend in one of the game's fast-paced ritual showdowns. The object is to extinguish your opponent's ceremonial flame, by grasping an object called the Celestial Orb then diving into the flames with it, or simply throwing it in. Each of the different characters has his or her own unique attributes and special abilities. Which characters you bring into the field, along with the variety of unique environments, make it so no two Rites play out the same way.
