Stray Gods: Orpheus Has Scored A Console Release Alongside PC Next Week

Rock on!

Update 21/6: After revealing it would be coming to PC on June 27th, Summerfall Studios has now confirmed that Stray Gods: Orpheus – a big new DLC expansion for its 2023 banger, Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical – will also reach console platforms on the same day.

Read the original story below to learn more about the DLC:

Melbourne’s very own collective of bloody legends, Summerfall Studios, has revealed a brand-new DLC coming to last year’s award-winning breakout hit, Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical.

Dubbed Stray Gods: Orpheus, the DLC will offer a brand-new story in the world of Stray Gods, where players will take on the role of Orpheus himself. The studio is calling it a “comedic feature-length experience” with elements of romance and a dash of rock ‘n roll, so it sounds like it’ll be a bit of a different beast from the core game and a treat for fans. Orpheus will star Anthony RappErika Ishii and again be written by David Gaider.

This DLC will also feature no less than six brand-new songs, all of which feature the same real-time decision making and branching performances as the main game, with Austin Wintory returning to compose along with Simon Hall (Tripod), Montaigne (Jess Cerro) and the incredible and hilarious Tom Cardy joining in for the first time.

Stray Gods: Orpheus is coming to PC on June 27th with a console release to follow. You can wishlist it on Steam here, and check out a very short teaser trailer below:

“When the Fates themselves have always written your story, what happens when you pick up the pen?

Play as Orpheus in this brand new story for Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical! Orpheus’ story is arguably finished – until Hermes brings him back to the world of the living. With their help, you’ll guide Orpheus through the depths of mortal decision making – who to date, what to hope for, what instrument to rock out on…”

We gave Stray Gods a very warm 6.5/10 in our review, with Brodie saying, “Stray Gods might be a well-written, narrative-driven murder mystery that drags us to Olympus and back again, but it fails to deliver anything remotely close to an earworm after hours of forgettable melodies. Though Bailey and Baker do enough to earn their flowers, the production itself does little to land Stray Gods a place among the musical pantheon.”
