    From our bountiful Codex inbox:

    STOCKHOLM and IRVINE, Calif. — Oct. 13, 2016 — Paradox Interactive today unveiled the release date for Tyranny, the new role-playing game (RPG) from Obsidian Entertainment.Tyranny, a game that challenges players to find their place in an original fantasy realm where evil has conquered the known world, will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs on November 10, 2016. Starting today, players can pre-order Tyranny in advance of the game’s launch, and secure bonus material that will help demonstrate their loyalty to Kyros the Overlord.

    See what fate awaits the Tiers in a new trailer for Tyranny:



    Pre-orders for Tyranny are available in three versions, all of which will include bonus content and extras alongside the full game.

    In Tyranny, the grand war between good and evil has already finished – and the forces of evil, led by Kyros the Overlord, have won. Players interact with the populace to inspire loyalty, disgust, or fear as they roam the world as an officer in Kyros’ forces, empowered to act as both judge and executioner. A nonlinear story offers players the chance to roam and alter the world as they see fit, and provides a highly replayable experience.​

    Hurry over to Tyranny's Steam store page so you can get that Overlord Edition!

    Infinitron won't let me add this to the OP, but Tyranny also offers in-game items as pre-order DLC:

    Not going to lie I'm actually looking forward to playing this game, despite some of the mechanical decisions I'm not happy about. Pillars grew on me a lot, and I'm curious to see if they did a better job of world building here.

    Is a desktop wallpaper signed by the dev team not enough for you?

    "Merely holding it impresses upon the wielder a sense of authority." This is probably true for any person holding a stamp seal :)
    Edit: Embarrassing typo.

    Well, I've got nothing to play and nothing coming up, so I guess I'll buy this.

    I just hope they learned some things from PoE. i.e. No 40 minute exposition dumps. Who is writing this?

    Haha you think that's a joke, but the only reason we don't have stuff like that already is he's too lazy to code it :shittydog:

    I thought evil was supposed to triumph on Nov 8.

    Edit: anyone figure out what the differences between the editions are?

    Wow, a signed wallpaper, need to have that, if you keep the signatures in good state it might be worth a lot of money in the future.

    Seriously, has anyone in the universe proved that if you market your more expensive editions with this crap they get more buyers? If I was a whale and had extra money to spend to support my favourite developers and they pulled this crap I would pirate it instead.

    I've got shares in Paradox. Getting a copy in support (Lie: I'd get anyway). I hope their stock can rise somewhat and that they don't have ridicilous expectations.

    100k units seems doable.

    By the way magic boots are the most retarded Item you can possible imagine. Especially ones that were passed trough generations. I mean imagine all the smell! And even worse what if original owner got foot issues like fungus or something.

    That's what the "remove hostile effect on kill" enchant is for.
