Back in 2014 Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive announced they were partnering up to launch Pillars of Eternity. Today at its GDC presentation Paradox revealed that both companies are creating a new fantasy CRPG called Tyranny for PC.

During the presentation CEO of Paradox Interactive Fredrik Wester spoke fondly about Paradox and Obsidian's relationship:

In Obsidian, we’ve identified a partner whose development and design ideals are a perfect match for our own,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We’ve been involved with Tyranny from the ground up, and are proud to be working with the Obsidian team on the creation of this unique world. This will mark a bold step for Paradox into the RPG genre, and we can’t think of a better partner to have for the journey.

We'll have a preview of the game up next week. For now, you can check out a teaser trailer right here:

Tyranny is due out in 2016.
