Tyranny Release FAQ
UPDATED NOV 10TH, 18:08 CET

Greetings, Fatebinders to-be!
Since we see some of the same questions repeated on this forum we thought we’d address some of the more common ones in this thread! This will be continuously updated.

Is there a pre-load available?
Yes! All digital retailers have a pre-load. The pre-load starts on November 8th and is active until launch.

When does the game release?
November 10th, 8AM PST/ 17.00 CET (give or take 10-15 minutes for storefronts to update).

Can I look at people while I wait for release to happen?
That’s an oddly specific question but I’m glad you asked! There’s going to be a release stream that starts on November 10th, at 16.00 CET (7 AM Pacific) and continues after release. So you can watch that while you wait!

Game Specific Questions

Do I have to play an evil character?
No, but you always have to keep the regime you work within in mind. There are “good” choices to be made, you can try and be merciful or defiant, but everything has consequences - sometimes with unforeseen results or unexpected outcomes.


How long is the game?
The average playtime for Tyranny is around 25 hours, if you are used to the combat mechanics and play on normal difficulty. For a completionist or those playing on a high difficulty setting, it’s around 35-40 hours.


How many distinct playthroughs are there?
There are 4 distinct paths through the game, and then there’s a lot of choices that affect you and the world around you within those paths.


How do I gain XP and level up?
You level up your abilities by using them. This includes magic, combat skills, and conversational skills.


Is this a classless system?
Yes!


Is this real time with pause?
Yep!

Known Issues
Can’t select which monitor to play on if using multiple monitors
This is unfortunately a known issue with the version of Unity that the game uses. Below is how you can access the setting with games that use this version of Unity.

If you hold down SHIFT while double-clicking on the executable, it will bring up the Unity configuration window. The third option allows you to select which display the game appears on.

Known Fraps-related issues:
- Toggling fullscreen while recording in Fraps crashes game.
- Crash when Alt-tabbing in fight in Edgering Ruins while recording in Fraps.

In addition, we have provided a "Quick Guide" to Tyranny for you, including a list of hotkeys and commands, and a brief explanation of a few key game concepts. Find it here: https://app.box.com/v/TyrannyQuickguide

Hi, could you please tell me the content of the Commander's Edition? There's nothing about it on the Steam page. Thanks in advance.
TheLetterZ  [developer] Nov 10, 2016 @ 4:30am 
Commander edition is the vanilla base game, not counting pre-order items that is just the game. :)
Is the price of commander edition the same as the game will be after release?

But on the 1st game screenshot on the store this is listed:

Tyranny - Commander Edition will include the following:
- Base Game
- Ringtones: three notification tones and one ringtone
- Commander Edition Forum Icon (for Paradox Plaza only)
- Forum Avatars (for Paradox Plaza only)

So, are those included as the picture says or not?

Yay, thanks. I was going to send you to Kyros for a little 'talk' otherwise. :steammocking:

I have purchased "Limited Physical Edition" from Cenega. What version of the game did the serial key unlock?
If it is just the Commander Edition - is there any way to get the Short Stories that are a part of Archon Edition?
