Obsidian’s Tyranny is now available for PC gamers who wish to enjoy it.
Tyranny, a new isometric RPG game from the creators of Pillars of Eternity, KOTOR II and Fallout: New Vegas. Tyranny builds upon the gameplay and engine used in Obsidian’s previous title Pillars of Eternity, yet it is not a sequel to the game. Evil overlord Kyros is already in control over the world. As a Fatebinder, you need to travel the world in order to restore order after Kyros’ victory.
During your quest, you can recruit companions including the mage Sirin, Archon of Song, the uncompromising Barik of the Stone Shields, the fierce warrior Verse, the sage Lantry, the water mage Eb, and the humanoid, feral beast woman Kills-in-Shadow.
- Branching, unique stories in an original setting: The battle between good and evil has already taken place, and evil stands victorious
- Choices matter – make world-altering decisions with far-reaching consequence: As a Fatebinder in the Overlord’s army you wield a vast amount of power in the occupied lands of the Tiers. Will you use that to inspire stability and loyalty, will you be feared, or will you seek your own power?
- Challenging, classic RPG combat: Tactical real-time-with-pause combat with new party-driven mechanics and modern presentation
- A rich original setting: Not just another “hero’s journey” — Tyranny turns the archetypal RPG story on its head and allows players to explore a new take on good and evil.
In the light of knowing that there is no pure evil or good in this world, Tyranny offers us a chance to feel ourselves good againts pure evil forces. There is always a chance of being corrupted by power but remember what happened to Darth Vader?
