Pentiment release date revealed
Obsidian Entertainment has revealed that Pentiment is coming to Xbox and PC on November 15th.
The narrative adventure lets players explore history “through the style of illuminated manuscripts and early modern woodcuts.” Take on the role of Andreas Maler, a journeyman artist in 16th century upper Bavaria during the time of the Holy Roman Empire.
Andreas finds himself caught up in a series of murders and scandals that spans 25 years and must follow leads and investigate the suspects to find the culprit.
“It will be up to you to decide Andreas’ choices, from his educational background and lifestyle to how he investigates the murders that happen around him,” Mikey Dowling, director of communications at Obsidian, added in an Xbox Wire post. “From sneaking into the abbey library late at night to look at secret documents, to playing a round of a tavern’s favorite card game to get information from those who are playing, it’s up to you to choose how to use the precious time you’re given to investigate the suspects.”
Pentiment launches November 15th for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. The game will also be available via Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass from day one.
