Just gorgeous

What a day this is turning out to be! Hot on the heels of all the PlayStation 4K nonsense and a bunch of other big stories, Supergiant Games has announced its latest game Pyre out of the blue. The studio – best known for indie darlings Bastion and Transistor – will launch its latest as a PS4 console debut in 2017, and it's already shaping up to be an audio-visual feast.

Described as a "party-based role-playing game", the title will see "you lead a band of exiles through an ancient competition spread across a vast, mystical purgatory". What does that mean? We honestly haven't got the foggiest, but we should learn more later this week, as creative director Greg Kasavin and crew will be taking the title on tour to PAX East.
