Tyranny turns the archetypal RPG story on its head and allows players to explore a new take on good and evil.
Tyranny is a role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Paradox Interactive. Players will experience the new world order under the Overlord in a reactive role-playing game (RPG), interacting with the populace as a powerful Fatebinder in the Overlord’s forces — roaming the lands to inspire loyalty or fear as they bring control to the last holdouts of the Tiers. You are a Fatebinder, the judge and executioner of Kyros’ law, acting under the watchful eye of the Overlords Archon of Justice, Tunon the Adjudicator (pictured right). Your words shape the lives of thousands. Will you use that power to bring justice and inspire loyalty? Or will you bring fear and cruelty to the beaten people of the Tiers? In Tyranny, the grand war between good and evil is over – and the forces of evil, led by Kyros the Overlord, have won.

- Branching, unique stories in an original setting: The battle between good and evil has already taken place, and evil stands victorious
- A rich original setting: Not just another “hero’s journey” — Tyranny turns the archetypal RPG story on its head and allows players to explore a new take on good and evil
- Challenging, classic RPG combat: Tactical real-time-with-pause combat with new party-driven mechanics and modern presentation
Tyranny is Obsidian's latest cRPG with a twist. Instead of trying to save the world and beat the bad guys you're working for them. The Overlord’s merciless armies dominate the face of the world, and its denizens must find their new roles within the war-torn realm... even as discord begins to rumble among the ranks of Kyros’ most powerful Archons. Perhaps not massively enjoyable if you're looking for a more complex combat system but if you're new to cRPGs this seems like a great place to start.
