Pentiment is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5 tomorrow – February 22nd. Limited Run Games will offer a physical release on Xbox, Switch, and PS5 and preorders will kick off tomorrow, running through March 24th.

Pentiment has been available since November 2022 across Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

From Obsidian, this game is a historical narrative-driven game focusing on character development, heavily stylized art, and choice-driven storytelling in early 16th century Bavaria. Players will play as Andreas Maler, a clever illustrator caught up in a series of murders in Tassing and Kiersau Abbey over the course of twenty five years. Players will be responsible for conducting their own investigation to decide the fate of the community, but each decision will have lasting consequences and inexorably draws Andreas closer to the center of an underlying conspiracy.


  • Illustrated world – Experience 16th century Europe as the master artists of the time saw them. Art inspired by great illuminated manuscripts and the earliest printed books becomes a living, breathing world in Pentiment.
  • Uncover mysteries – Choose different academic and social backgrounds and meet a colorful cast of characters as you discover the stories and secrets that lie within the small Bavarian town of Tassing and nearby Keirsau Abbey.
  • Impact a changing world – In an era of great religious and political change, each decision you make can have a profound impact on the community’s future. Find your own way through this turbulent time and see the consequences of your choices play out over generations.
