Paradox Interactive AB: Paradox and Obsidian Unleash Tyranny Worldwide Today

New Role-playing Game Available Now, Set in World where Evil has
Conquered All

STOCKHOLM and IRVINE, Calif. - Nov. 10, 2016 -Paradox Interactive
today released Tyranny, a brand-new role-playing game (RPG) from
Obsidian Entertainment, for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs. Tyranny,
designed and developed by the award-winning studio behind both modern
and classic RPG hits including Pillars of Eternity, Fallout: New
Vegas, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, is now
available via digital retail outlets worldwide. The game places
players within a world where a brutal clash between good and evil has
taken place - and evil has emerged triumphant. Players will take on
the role of a high-ranking officer in the armies of Kyros the
Overlord, make world-altering, morally difficult decisions that guide
the fate of thousands, and find their place in a new world order.

"Tyranny is a groundbreaking step for Paradox, establishing us further
within the RPG genre," said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox
Interactive. "Paradox games are, by design, deep, complex, and
replayable, allowing gamers to experience very personal stories when
they play one of our titles. Who better than Obsidian to create an
RPG that fits those qualities? We're proud to share Tyranny with the
world and show what we can achieve with such a creative partner."

"The tale of Tyranny is a story that Obsidian has been thinking about
for years, and today we're proud to share it with the world," said
Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. "What started out as
a simple premise -- `what if evil won?' -- has become the next great
Obsidian game. As RPG players, we love great stories and tough
choices in games. With Tyranny, we made sure these were at the
forefront, through the lens that evil has already conquered the
world."

In Tyranny, the grand war between good and evil is over - and the
forces of evil, led by Kyros the Overlord, have won. The Overlord's
merciless armies dominate the face of the world, and its denizens
must find their new roles within the war-torn realm. Players interact
with the populace to inspire loyalty, disgust, or fear as they roam
the world as an officer in Kyros' forces, empowered to act as both
judge and executioner.

Tyranny is available now, starting at $44.99. To purchase Tyranny or
