As our way of saying thanks to the players who’ve supported Pyre. Since Supergiant Games released the game in July, wenow have a free update available now on Steam. At the center of the latest update is a new Campaign mode. Since the developers are amping up the challenge and enhancing playthrough’s.
So for those who have not had a chance to play Pyre. Or been able to try Bastion or Transistor. Both games have discounts as well as pricing on the entire Supergiant library this weekend. Since all of the games are available for Linux, Ubuntu, Mac and Windows, it’s a nice bonus.
About the ‘True Nightwing’ Update
So the latest update is a new Campaign mode. Since this is available after you reach the end of the Campaign. Therefore if you have already finished the Campaign, it should be unlocked automatically.
Reminiscent of an ‘Ironman’ mode in other games, this new way to play really amps up the challenge, and emphasizes many of the unique aspects of Pyre’s campaign — notably in how the story has no ‘Game-Over’ state, and keeps moving forward, taking your choices and outcomes into account.
Some of the specific changes in this mode:
- Base difficulty same as Heightened.
- All Titan Stars unlocked, and some must be used.
- Enlightenment required to rank up re-scaled.
- Cannot load checkpoints or restart Rites.
- Book of Rites and White Lute fully unlocked.
- Slugmarket inventory fully unlocked.
- Feats of Glory introduced much sooner.
- Note: Once chosen, this setting cannot be changed.
In addition to the new mode, there is also more than two hours of extra music. Available in the Pyre Original Soundtrack, in the form of two bonus albums…
- Pyre: Original Soundtrack – The White Lute features acoustic versions of many of the signature tracks from the game (they’re the versions you hear using the White Lute item in the wagon).
- Pyre: Original Soundtrack – The Black Mandolin features eight unique variations of the song ‘Never to Return’, for each of the different triumvirates you confront in the Rites!
So if you own the soundtrack, you’ll automatically receive these bonus albums as a free update.
So make sure to grab the discount pricing on the entire Supergiant library this weekend. All of the games are available for Linux, Ubuntu, Mac and Windows.
