Obsidian and Paradox Interactive took advantage of GDC 2016 to announce Tyranny, a new RPG title.

Tyranny is not going to be your average RPG, where you are the hero and save everyone. This time you play the bad guy in a fantasy world that is still recovering from a massive conflict between good and evil, where evil has triumphed.

“You are the judge and executioner of Kyros’ law, acting under the watchful eye of the Overlords Archon of Justice, Tunon the Adjudicator,” reads the game’s official website. “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?”

There is currently no release date for Tyranny, but the game is supposed to be out this year on PC. Check out some screenshots below. The game sure looks like a classic Obsidian RPG title, no?
