Obsidian Entertainment, the studio behind 2019’s The Outer Worlds, has unveiled Pentiment, a beautiful narrative journey through 16th-century Bavaria. It’s coming to Xbox consoles and PC this November.
Revealed during today’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Pentiment appears to be quite a departure from what Obsidian has been releasing in recent years. Still, the project looks intriguing. The game has quite a unique visual style reminiscent of an old medieval painting or book. That makes sense, too, since Pentiment isn’t an RPG like The Outer Worlds or a survival game like the studio’s Grounded, but rather a narrative-driven adventure game.
Check out the trailer below for yourself:
Here’s how Xbox describes Pentiment in the YouTube trailer description:
Set in 16th-century Bavaria, Pentiment takes players on a narrative journey through the eyes of journeyman artist Andreas Maler during a time of great social unrest. Led by game director Josh Sawyer, this game is brought to life by a talented team inspired by illuminated manuscripts, woodcuts and history itself.”
Pentiment is coming to Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC this November.
