This is a game I’m personally very excited for. I enjoyed Pillars of Eternity a great deal – even if it had more than its fair share of kinks at launch. The premise for Tyranny is a world where the evil overlord has won and the player is entrusted to pacify and hand down judgment in the conquered lands. Developer diaries and videos emphasize that choices can have very far-ranging consequences on the game world and so this should be a title with plenty of replayability. The setting and lore also seem pretty interesting so I can’t wait until the game is out to explore it.

You can preorder directly on Paradox’s webshop, GOG or Steam if you’re so inclined. There’s a few small incentives for doing and Obsidian and Paradox have a good track record of Linux support but the same general warnings about preordering always apply!

Update: Liam reached out to the publisher and confirmed that the release will be day-1!

@gamingonlinux @PdxInteractive @YouTube The lord Kyros wouldn't have it any other way!

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm unashamed of being a nerd and love discovering things and developing new interests.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally can be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.

Wow! That was sooner than I had expected, thankfully I finished PoE's "White March" expansion just last month so I'm raring to go for more Obsidian crpg-ing. Now, basically everything that remains of the gaming year 2016 is saved for me.

The fact that they replied to me to confirm day one has me happy!

Paradox is a model developer and publisher as far as I'm concerned. They have been an avid supporter of Linux since day one -- in this case meaning the day Steam for Linux was officially released. Crusader Kings II was one of the first Linux games I purchased on Steam, and I am proud to say that I have played it exclusively on Linux.

Such great news! Good job Obsidian!

Thank you to Obsidian and Paradox for being two great Linux supporters with their games, preordered after seeing the news.

But I must say that if I have to nitpick something is that they could have waited more time between the release of the Leviathans expansion for Stellaris and this game, I don't know where I will find time to play both

How many confirmed day one releases is this now?

Damn it looks awesome but I have to pass for now, I still have to finish PoE with the expansions. Seriously there too many games on Linux available now. Not good for my productivity ;)

Awesome news! Still not pre-ordering, though. I'll buy it day 1, most likely, so long as the reviews aren't terrible nor is it riddled with bugs.

Will it have workable character development system? (and not like PoE)
Will it have good exp system? (and not like PoE)
Will it be possible to play as single char and not a whole party? (and not like PoE)
