Today, Paradox Interactive and Obsidian Entertainment has announced the Pillars of Eternity Complete Edition, which will be releasing on August 29th for the PS4 and Xbox One, bringing the celebrated CRPG to console for the first time! Check out the announcement trailer:
Pillars of Eternity is an RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, which features an original world and game system that evokes and improves upon the traditional computer RPG experience. The Complete Edition, adapted for consoles by Paradox Arctic and distributed at physical retail by 505 Games, features an enhanced UI and redesigned controls to provide a superb experience on the big screen, navigated easily and intuitively using game controllers.
The Pillars of Eternity complete edition includes the following content:
- The base game
- Both expansions: The White March Parts I and II
Fans of Pillars of Eternity now have an entirely fresh experience to play (or relive) in anticipation of the upcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The port is developed by Paradox Arctic studio and features an enhanced console interface, with controller-friendly menus, combat, and party management.
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire just finished up an impressive crowdfunding campaign and is in heavy development. The sequel will build upon the strengths of the first while adding more expansive player options while continuing the story of the first.
This could mean good things for Pillars of Eternity’s alternative history sequel Tyranny which envisions a world where evil has won, and this could mean it’s the next Obsidian classic to make an appearance on consoles as well as Deadfire. We can only hope! Thoughts on the news? Sound off in the comments!
