Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive have announced their new game, Tyranny, an RPG set in a new fantasy world.
This isn’t the first time that the two companies have worked together on an RPG, as they previously worked on the game Pillars of Eternity. Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said the following in a statement “Four years ago, we hoped the world wanted to be reacquainted with classic, story-rich RPGs, as it turned out, the answer to that was an emphatic ‘yes'”
The game puts a new twist on the war between good and evil, as evil has prevailed in the world of Tyranny, and the armies of the Overlord Kyros dominate the face of the world. As an officer in service of Kyros, players must decide if they will inspire, disgust or instill fear in the populace as they can act as both judge and executioner.
Below is the announcement trailer for the game.
