Obsidian announces new RPG Tyranny

Play as a baddie. Due this year.

Obsidian Entertainment has announced a new RPG at the Paradox GDC press conference. It's called Tyranny.

Due out at some point in 2016, Tyranny isn't a successor to Pillars of Eternity, but it does run on the same engine.

This time out you create a character who played a key role in the domination of this land. Dubbed the "Fatebinder", you customise not only their look but also their history as you select certain decisions they made in the recent upheaval. These drastically affect the state of the world, and Obsidian promises many branching storylines.

Here's a brief teaser:
