Tyranny: Artistry

Posted on 22 Sep 2016 by

Paradox have just released their second video of the three part series examining the world of Tyranny. For anyone in the dark, Tyranny is the latest RPG from Obsidian, the modern masters who’ve brought us such titles as Pillars of Eternity, Skyforge, and South Park the Stick of Truth.

While Unity assets may make it easy to take AAA visuals for granted, to get a truly unique and immersive experience you still need a bucket load of talent. This short video highlights some of the talent they have poured into the game. The snippets of orchestral music alone, are enough to drag your imagination into another realm.

I’ll let you judge the rest of the artwork for yourself, but if this is a fair representation of the game’s production values, then we should be in for a real treat when Tyranny is released later this year.

Official Press Release

STOCKHOLM and IRVINE, Calif. — Sep. 22, 2016 — Paradox Interactive and Obsidian Entertainment today released the second in a three-part video series about Tyranny, the upcoming role-playing game (RPG) for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. In this new episode, fans will meet the many artists and designers who have brought the world of Tyranny to life through animation, music, character design, and much more. From the basic concepts of the characters who inhabit the game to the look and feel of the overrun lands, the new video shows the countless contributions that go into creating a new world where evil has won.

Paradox and Obsidian will also feature a live stream of Tyranny later today, demonstrating a few new features not yet shared in public, including the game’s custom spell-creation systems and a bit of dungeon exploration. The stream begins at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time today, September 22, at https://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.

In Tyranny, the grand war between good and evil is over – and the forces of evil, led by Kyros the Overlord, have won. The Overlord’s merciless armies dominate the face of the world, and its denizens must find new roles within the war-torn realm. Players’ decisions will have far-reaching consequences and change both the land and its people, providing a non-linear, highly replayable experience. Tyranny is scheduled to arrive for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs in 2016.
