The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017
By GameSpot Staff on
Supergiant Games, the creators of Bastion and Transistor, is making a slight departure from the direction of its past two games. Judging from early gameplay footage, Pyre will play like a fusion of sports, strategy, RPG, and MOBA games. It’s conceptually akin to any sports game where an object must be placed in a goal, but each character has abilities similar to DOTA 2's champions. And the real twist: it’s wrapped into a story-driven RPG. It may sound crazy, but after playing through the game’s opening sequence, it’s easy to see how its gameplay elements will make for hectic, exciting battles.
There is strong familiarity in Pyre’s music and art style. The music harkens back to the acoustic trip-hop with a western flavor found in Bastion, but it incorporates an electronic touch reminiscent of Transistor. The hand-illustrated art style will make a comeback as well, painting a majestic picture of nomads traversing plains in search of a home...while battling in supernatural arenas. The game is set for release in 2017 on Playstation 4 and PC.
