Bizarre narrative adventure Pentiment will be released Nov. 15, development studio Obsidian announced Wednesday. It will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, and through Xbox and PC Game Pass on day one. Pre-orders for the game are now open.

Pentiment Release Date is Nov. 15

From the developers of Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, The Outer Worlds and, most recently, Grounded, Pentiment plunges players into 16th century Europe as depicted in illuminate manuscripts and woodcuts of the era. Andreas Maler is a traveling artist who finds himself caught up in a web of secrets, scandals, conspiracies and murders in the fictional Bavarian town of Tassing and nearby Kiersau Abbey.

If the singular art style weren't enough, the game's Xbox store page says players will make in-game decisions over the course of the game's 25-year timeline. They'll then watch the results of those decisions play out over succeeding generations.

The game's first publicly playable demo is being presented at Gamescom this week.
