Tyranny artwork and logo for the Bastard's Wound expansion

As I've mentioned in my initial review for Tyranny, Obsidian ended the campaign in such an anticlimactic way that it was practically guaranteed they were planning to do an expansion or sequel. Quite a few months have passed since then, but soon the mysteries will be revealed as Tyranny's very first expansion "Bastard's Wound" is just around the corner.

Once it arrives it will allow us to explore an all-new section of the world, mostly focused around an illegal settlement of those that have fled the devastation of the endless war. There will also be new companion quests and storylines involving Verse, Barik, and Lantry, as well as a whole bunch of new features and expanded content for Tyranny's solely lacking third act. Perhaps most importantly of all, there will be a brand new ending that explores what happens to those that remain truly loyal to Kyros!

I would love to tell you more about the story and the new features, but like pretty much any game published by Paradox the details are in very short supply. If you would like to learn just a tiny bit more, however, I would recommend heading over to the Paradox website. For those of you simply interested in the release date, you might be glad to hear that Tyranny - Bastard's Wound will be coming on September 7th! And as a final note, here's the recently posted cinematic trailer that gives a brief overview of the new storyline. Enjoy!
