At last! A week after Tyranny's appearance at E3, a media embargo appears to have lapsed and numerous previews of the game have appeared across the web, including the first proper gameplay footage. The E3 demo was a siege scenario set in a fortress called Ascension Hall, in which the player can find himself allied with one of three factions - the Scarlet Chorus or the Disfavored, two rival armies who are besieging the fortress, or the Vendrien Guard, the rebel force defending it. PCGamesN have a 36 minute video which showcases the siege from all three sides:

Here's a list of all the previews I was able to track down:

The previews mention that the game allows you to betray your faction and switch sides in this scenario (although the PCGamesN video doesn't demonstrate that possibility). Depending on your attributes and reputation, this can have different results, ranging from you ending up fighting both sides to the betrayed faction retreating without a fight. There are some details about the combat, including UI changes and improvements. You can see that for yourself in the video, but it's worth mentioning that one preview also mentions the addition of in-dialogue lore tooltips - a feature that Pillars of Eternity lead writer Eric Fenstermaker said could have been helpful for reducing "exposition bloat" in our interview with him earlier this year. Finally, Obsidian have released seven new Tyranny screenshots to go with these previews, which you can view here.
