Pentiment has a release date, November 15th, after initially being announced during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase. The release date announcement came via Xbox Wire where more details were shared.

“Explore history in the modern time through the style of illuminated manuscripts and early modern woodcuts. Pentiment is a narrative-adventure game set in 16th century upper Bavaria in the time of the Holy Roman Empire. You will take on the role of Andreas Maler, a very clever journeyman artist who gets caught up in a series of murders and scandals that spans 25 years in the fictional town of Tassing and Kiersau Abbey”.

“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. 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. Every decision and accusation Andreas makes carries consequences that will impact the tightly-knit Alpine community for generations to come.”

The game is open for pre-order at the price of $19.99 and available for pre installs for Game Pass users. Pentiment is being developed by Obsidian Entertainment and directed by Josh Sawyer, one of the leads on games such as Fallout: New Vegas and the Pillars of Eternity series.




This E3 had so many games for me, can’t wait for this one. Good price point too.


Fuck yeah, Obsidian. I’m so happy for Josh and can’t wait to play this. I preloaded immediately.

The 15th is a decent enough gap after Ragnarok.


No cloud?!

In the announcement trailer it says cloud


Stellar price point. I’ll buy it day-one, even though it’s on XGP. Can’t wait :cupid:


Day one purchase. Can’t wait!


it’s giving my Procession to Chivalry mixed with Yes, Your Grace vibes and I’m absolutely here for it.


An Art focused news outlet had since coverage of the game. It actually educates you on what the word “Pentiment” even means! And yes it’s related to art, and ties into uncovering a mystery.
