Today is the first day of the annual Gamescom trade fair in Cologne, Germany, and as it happens, one of the first games to be showcased there is Obsidian's upcoming RPG, Tyranny. A few hours ago, project director Brian Heins and systems designer Nick Carver were guests on Paradox's Gamescom livestream, where they gave us our first look at the game's intro movie and character creation sequence. Tyranny's character creation seems similar to Pillars of Eternity, but also different, compensating for the lack of race and class options with additional background and cosmetic choices. Unfortunately, the demo cuts off right before the most interesting-sounding part of character creation - the CYOA sequence where you define your character's choices prior to the beginning of the game's story. You can watch the entire thing here:


As an unexpected bonus, Paradox have also uploaded a Tyranny dev diary video to their YouTube channel, the first in a new series. It's a basic overview of the game's premise, featuring various Obsidian personnel. There's not really any new information here, but a good deal of new gameplay footage. Oh, and apparently Kyros the Overlord is female? Here's the video:


Hopefully we'll see more of Tyranny before Gamescom is over. I'm still holding out for a release date announcement, too.
