Stray Gods: Orpheus offers a role-playing musical DLC encore

Stray Gods: A Role-Playing Musical, a creative and ambitious attempt to fuse musical theater with an interactive novel, debuted last August, but it won’t be the last time fans get to experience a modern take on Greek mythology. Announced today at LudoNarraCon, the game is getting a DLC called Stray Gods: Orpheus, which follows the titular character through a new adventure. Check out the reveal trailer below.

Orpheus (played by rent star Anthony Rapp) appeared in the base game, but only briefly, so this expansion gives players a better idea of ​​his background and personality. Hermes (played by Erika Ishii) is also featured in the trailer, though her exact role in the DLC is not clarified. The experience is roughly two hours long with six new interactive tracks and features some returning songwriters including Austin Wintory, Simon Hall and Montaigne, while comedy musician Tom Cardy is added to the mix.

As for the plot, the following excerpt from the press release explains what to expect. “When the curtain falls and the show is over, who will you go home as?” it reads. “Choose to reject, embrace or rewrite the stories the world expects of you. Is the mortal world ready for the return of ancient Greece’s most infamous bard?”

Stray Gods: Orpheus hits PC on June 27, with a console release date “coming soon.” For more Stray Gods, check out our feature on how it’s made. For more Greek mythology, visit our Hades II coverage hub for special coverage this month.
