Tyranny is Obsidian’s new RPG in the Pillars-style

Baldur’s Gate-inspired CRPGs live on

Now that it has been thoroughly expanded, Pillars of Eternity can be left to sit and digest while folks work on that Triple Crown achievement.

In the meantime, though, Obsidian has a new game in the Pillars of Eternity style called Tyranny, just announced at Paradox’s press conference at the Game Developers Conference. Paradox is, again, publishing. The two companies announced their partnership at GDC two years ago.

Tyranny takes place, “in a world where evil won,” rather than offer a “good vs evil” story. You play as one of the leaders who marched the evil empire’s army across the land. It releases in 2016 and we’ll have more on it next week.
