Ahead of next month’s launch, on November 15th, 2022 to be precise, Obsidian Entertainment has announced that Pentiment has gone gold and is ready to launch. As announced in a tweet, we’re told, “Proofs have been approved and we’re ready to go to market! The journey begins November 15, 2022. Pre-order today!”
Pentiment is a historical mystery game set in 16th century Bavaria. The idea is to uncover a series of murders and determine who committed the crimes by influencing gameplay choices and choices.
With launch about a month away, game director Josh Sawyer recently took to Twitter to talk about how the game is doing in terms of performance. We were told that Xbox Series S should be able to offer 1440p and 60fps, Xbox Series X should be able to handle 4K and 60fps, Xbox One offers 1080p and 60fps, and that a test PC machine powered by an RTX 3090Ti graphics card has managed to clock 3000fps at 1080p resolution. Considering that the game doesn’t have very demanding hardware specs (like the Steam page shows), this seems to be possible.
