Pyre: Out Tuesday, Enhanced for PS4 Pro, 50+ Trophies, New Launch Trailer

Supergiant features more characters in Pyre's 90-second launch trailer than there were in the studio's first two games.

If you enjoyed Transistor or Bastion, then I hope you’ll have a chance to play Pyre when it debuts next week on PS4. Our third game is a party-based RPG featuring our biggest campaign ever, filled with unique characters I cannot wait for you to meet. You can get a taste of what’s in store in our launch trailer above.

My favorite part of this trailer is, it has more characters in its 90 second running time than you meet over the entire course of our first two games. And, it’s really only scratching the surface — you’ll see what I mean once you play the full game! For example, the trailer doesn’t reveal one of the most unique aspects of Pyre’s campaign, which is that there’s no Game Over — the story moves forward no matter whether you prevail or you fail in any of the game’s high-stakes ritual competitions, where the freedom of your fellow exiles hangs in the balance.

Enhanced for PlayStation 4 Pro: Another detail we’re very pleased to reveal is that Pyre runs natively in 4K on PS4 Pro, which is a first for us. You’ll experience the game running at an ever-glorious 60 frames per second, in that absurdly high resolution that you have to see running on a 4K display to truly appreciate.

If you don’t have a PS4 Pro, no worries, of course…! We think you’ll find the game looks stunning and runs fantastic on your console.

50+ Trophies: One more tidbit for you Trophy hunters out there… Pyre features more than 50 Trophies to collect, including one of those elusive Platinum varieties. This is way more than in either of our previous games, and we hope you’ll enjoy tracking them down. We love designing Trophies for our games, as, at their best, they can open your eyes to new ways to play and create a really exciting game-within-a-game experience, and make you feel that much more rewarded when you finally get all of them.

Pyre

We cordially invite you to join your fellow exiles in their quest for freedom!

There’s still time to pre-order Pyre and save 10% off the full price if you’re so inclined. Though, speaking as a former game critic who reviewed games for like 12 years before finally getting a shot at making them, I would just as soon encourage you to wait and see what folks have to say (especially if that 10% off doesn’t matter much to you). I myself don’t know what they will say just yet, but I do know this: They’ve said kind things about Bastion and Transistor, the last two games I’ve worked on. And, all of us at Supergiant who made those two games stuck together and pushed ourselves to the limits to make this one, in the spirit of our first two. So, I’m confident that, especially if you enjoyed our first two games, you’ll find something to love in this one. But you shouldn’t have to take my word for it. Until Tuesday!!

  • I really loved bastion and transistor.
    And I’m confident in your abilitys as a studio, to present order this game.
    Really looking forward for this.
    Thank you for your hard work!

    P. S.
    And also hope we begin this journey by waking up…

  • I can’t wait to get this game. Thank you Supergiant for giving us another great game to play.

  • Native 4K w/ 60fps on PS4 Pro? Wow! I don’t have the TV for that (yet) but I bet it’s a sight to behold :-)

      Yeah, as a matter of fact we posted a screenshot comparison on our web site! 4K is pretty wild to look at since (as the name suggests) it’s 4X the size of 1080p.

      “Native 4K on a Ps4 Pro !? Really?? How is that possible ????

  • Iv been a fan since your first game Bastion and will always support great devs like yourselves. Huge plus to this game is the soundtrack that i’m sure Darren Korb will once again nail. Thanks SuperGiant Games

      Hey, thank you in turn!! We’ll have more word on the soundtrack between now and the Tuesday launch, so look out for that! I think you’ll enjoy it — for one thing, it’s huge, almost two hours of music!

    It’s gonna really hard to top Transistor because that is one of, if not my favorite game of all time. It’s like number 1 or 2. I thought Bastion was alright. Anyway, i’ll be diving right into this when it comes out. You’ve got my quality trust.

      Thank you, that trust means an awful lot. As you can see, Pyre is quite different from Transistor, though I think our games all have the same ‘soul’ by virtue of being made by the same group of people working with the same set of values. Really hope you enjoy it, and that it surprises you in all the best ways.

  • First time I ever hear any dev hold their audience off for preordering, I’d say that’s because they are pretty confident about their game, slim chance their game won’t deliver, I am preordering

    • This. So much this. haha. I’m about to go pre-order right now and save $2 haha.

  • I loved transistor (bought it day 1 on ps4), it was the first game I platinum on ps4, after I finish it I start playing it again. Bastion is good but I like transistor way more. I want to preorder this but the gameplay looks like it’s a sport game, I think I’ll wait for the reviews.

    Also are there any plan to make transistor artbook? I just bought horizon, the last guardian, and splatoon artbook and I want more. It will be really cool to have artbook that explain the lore of transistor world before the event of the game.

    Or maybe make transistor 2 a prequel :)

  • I promised that I would buy your third game no matter what type of game you made because I loved your previous 2 games and would support your company.
    So Day one for me.
    The +side third game looks awesome :)

  • I can’t wait to play this! It looks like a ton of fun! The art style is fantastic!

  • i own both Bastion and Transistor, caught on to Bastion a lil later than Transistor, but always heard great things about it. At the same time, i was praising Transistor and everything about it. really loved the soundtrack. i also own a ps4 pro and a nifty 4k tv set….so……yes and yes. im in.

  • Supergiant’s reputation precedes itself, and they are hands down one of the best studios making games around today. Admittedly, the concept of Pyre is more shrouded in mystery to me compared to Bastion and Transistor…but given that reputation, I and many others can’t wait to see what is in store with their new creative vision. Cheers on the release!

    This is a really demonic game. Seriously, it’s disgusting. Sad to this from the makers of Transistor. Bastion has garbage idol offerings in the game too.

  • mr_brutality_7

    Received Transistor during the E3 giveaway. Game was amazing.

    Went ahead and bought Bastion and completed it for the first time. Also, amazing.

    Now this! Cant wait to play tomorrow!
