"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," explains Obsidian's director of communications, Mikey Dowling. "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."

We'll decide Andreas' background, and even how he investigates the murders. "From sneaking into the abbey library late at night to look at secret documents, to playing a round of a tavern’s favourite 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."

Pentiment launches for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Game Pass, and PC Game Pass on November 15th — according to Dowling, pre-installs are already available with Xbox Game Pass. If you're looking to buy the game, which is available to preorder, it'll cost $19.99. If you're looking for other medieval chaos to become embroiled in and have already played The Procession to Calvary, keep an eye on Inkulinati, which will also launch into Xbox Game Pass.
