Apart from its “be-the-bad-guy” twist, Tyranny stands out with the variety of consequences to the player’s choices. Even before you start playing, the game will let ask you several questions about the course of the war that lead to the fantasy realm having been conquered by evil Kyros the Overlord. Depending on your answers some regions will change and some people may react differently to your character. As Kyros’ officer you will also be given power to determine the fate of thousands in the course of your mission to subdue the last opposing land.
