Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will soon get to experience Obsidian’s recent take on the role-playing genre thanks to the release of Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition on August 29, 2017. The Complete Edition is going to offer both the original game and the two-part expansion called The White March as well as post-DLC updates. Of course, the XONE and PS4 conversions, which are being handled by Paradox Arctic, will feature a remodeled UI and controls redesigned specifically for their dedicated controllers.
During the Digital Dragons 2016 cinference in Kraków we got a chance to sit down with Feargus Urquhart, the CEO and founder of Obsidian Entertainment, and ask him a few questions. Feargus confirmed that Pillars of Eternity II is already in development, but the studio doesn’t want to make any official announcement yet. The sequel will most probably be crowdfunded on Kickstarter, just like the original game was.
Pillars of Eternity: Game of the Year Edition was spotted by Game Banshee on Amazon Germany priced at €49.99 and slated for release on February 19, 2016. This new retail release is to include the original game, The White March Part I and II, as well as the manual and soundtrack. However, the news hasn’t been confirmed by Paradox Interactive or Obsidian Entertainment.
Along with Pillars of Eternity: The White March II expansion comes a free patch to the original game. Obsidian Entertainment released a commentary video which discusses changes in 3.0 update, such as new content to stronghold, Story Time mode, new gameplay mechanics, improved UI, and late game revisions. The patch will be available the same day as The White March Part II, that is on February 16th.
Obsidian Entertainment revealed that the second and last expansion to their latest hit RPG Pillars of Eternity is coming live late January 2016. The White March – Part II will add new story missions, side quests, ablilities, higher level cap, and a new companion: Meneha, the Barbarian. Fans will also lay their hands on Story Time mode, letting us experience the game’s narrative at a faster pace.
Along with the debut of The White March a free 2.0 patch will be made available for the core version of the game. The developers have just released a video that shows all new features introduced to the gameplay by the update.
We've had a chance to talk about Pillars of Eternity with Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. Among the discussed topics was the success of this classic RPG, as well as its future in the form of an upcoming expansion and another Kickstarter fundraiser.
A video (which you can see above) has emerged of a recorded panel held by Obsidian Entertainment during this year's edition of gaming event Pax East in Boston. The developers from Obsidian have once again presented their most popular, yet still unreleased, work of the recent years, Pillars of Eternity, demonstrating a nearly 50-minute long gameplay.
