Regarding Obsidian, the new project is from a small team led by Josh Sawyer (lead of Fallout New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity). The title Pentiment, referring to the most underlying image in a painting, which has become visible once the layer of paint above it has faded over time, indicates the theme of the new project, placing as the protagonist an investigator in seventeenth-century Europe, dedicated to uncovering the truth behind a misty murder.

The game would take some cues from Disco Elysium, together with a dialogue formed by numerous choices and the typical narrative style of Sawyer; it will be possible to investigate to accuse characters in the game, e suffer the necessary consequences. Pentiment is an RPG title that doesn’t focus on combat, and appears to be exploring more experimental gameplay elements; moreover, it could arrive in 2022.
