Free 'True Nightwing' Update Out Now!


Since the launch of Pyre back in July, we've been taking stock of all the wonderful response and feedback from players around the world, as well as getting busy figuring out what's next! By way of saying thank-you to everyone who's supported the game, we're pleased to announce a free update and bonus soundtrack, available now!

About the 'True Nightwing' Update
The centerpiece of our latest update is a new Campaign mode that's unlocked after you reach the end of the Campaign (if you've already finished the Campaign, it should be unlocked automatically).

Reminiscent of an 'Ironman' mode in other games, this new way to play really amps up the challenge, and emphasizes many of the unique aspects of Pyre's campaign -- notably in how the story has no 'Game-Over' state, and keeps moving forward, taking your choices and outcomes into account.

It's designed to enhance playing through the Campaign successive times, whether you want to visit your favorite characters again, or experience all the many millions of event combinations in a whole new way.

Some of the specific changes in this mode:

· Base difficulty same as Heightened.
· All Titan Stars unlocked, and some must be used.
· Enlightenment required to rank up re-scaled.
· Cannot load checkpoints or restart Rites.
· Book of Rites and White Lute fully unlocked.
· Slugmarket inventory fully unlocked.
· Feats of Glory introduced much sooner.
· Note: Once chosen, this setting cannot be changed.

Many of the early tutorials are skippable so you can get into the meat of the action more quickly, and develop brand-new strategies around how to outfit your exiles, and how to take on your many adversaries. Complete the story in this mode, and earn a new Steam Achievement!

ALSO! Introducing the Pyre Original Soundtrack Bonus Album Set
In addition to the new mode, we're pleased to add more than two hours of extra music to the Pyre Original Soundtrack, in the form of two bonus albums.

· Pyre: Original Soundtrack - The White Lute features acoustic versions of many of the signature tracks from the game (they're the versions you hear using the White Lute item in the wagon).

· Pyre: Original Soundtrack - The Black Mandolin features eight unique variations of the song 'Never to Return', for each of the different triumvirates you confront in the Rites!

If you purchased the soundtrack, you'll automatically receive these bonus albums as a free update. You can also stream them for free on our YouTube channel and other streaming services.

Pyre Merchandise in our Online Store!

In case you missed it, we're also now offering a Pyre T-shirt and 24" x 36" Poster in our online store! Follow the links for more info on each item.

We ship these and all our store items worldwide, straight from our San Francisco studio.

We hope you enjoy the True Nightwing update, and we really appreciate all your support of Pyre.

About This Game

Pyre is a party-based RPG in which you lead a band of exiles to freedom through ancient competitions spread across a vast, mystical purgatory. Who shall return to glory, and who shall remain in exile to the end of their days?

Key Features:

  • A New World From the Creators of Bastion and Transistor


    Experience the biggest and most imaginative world yet from Supergiant! Get to know an ensemble cast of characters struggling to earn back their freedom as you make your way across the forsaken land called the Downside.
  • Action-Packed Three-on-Three Battle System


    Battle against a colorful cast of adversaries in pitched, high-stakes confrontations where each victory (or defeat!) brings your exiles closer to enlightenment. Choose three from your party for each Rite, and outfit them with mystic Talismans and powerful Masteries.
  • A Branching Story with No Game-Over

    In Pyre, you will never be forced to lose progress. Whether you prevail or you fail, your journey continues. The interactive narrative is expressed through a story that no two players will experience in quite the same way.
  • Challenge a Friend in Versus Mode


    On top of the single-player campaign, Pyre features a local two-player Versus Mode, where you can play against a friend (or CPU opponent) in one of the game's fast-paced ritual showdowns. Form your triumvirate from more than 20 unique characters.
  • Rich, Atmospheric Presentation


    Pyre once again showcases the award-winning talents of the team that created Bastion and Transistor. From the vibrant hand-painted artwork to the evocative musical score, every aspect of Pyre's presentation draws you into its fantasy world.
  • Accessible, Customizable Controls and 4K Ultra HD Graphics!

    Play with gamepad or mouse-and-keyboard using fully customizable controls custom-tailored to PC. The game offers a highly scalable challenge both in the campaign and Versus Mode. Experience it all in stunning 4K resolution (compatible display required)!
  • Unlock 'True Nightwing' Campaign Mode After Finishing the Story

    Complete the Campaign, then go at it once more, 'ironman'-style, with a unique set of rules, higher stakes, and greater challenge! Explore Pyre's wide breadth of narrative outcomes as you re-play the story.

A Message to Fans of Bastion & Transistor

Pyre is our third game as a small independent studio, and was made possible by the success of our first two games, thanks to players like you right here on Steam. This time around, we were excited to make something different from Bastion or Transistor, with a focus on a story-rich presentation, multi-character battles, and many possible narrative outcomes. We hope you'll be surprised and delighted by the result, and that the many characters you’ll meet and stories you experience during your journey stay with you for a long time to come. Safe travels through the Downside, and thank you for your support!--the Supergiants
