Paradox and Obsidian have announced that Pillars of Eternity will be launching on 26 March.
Pillars of Eternity is Obsidian’s old-school Kickstarted RPG, taking inspiration from titles like Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment and raising a rather nifty $4.5 million USD from backers. As its description includes the words “Obsidian” and “RPG”, we’re really quite excited by it.
In honour of this feat, Josh Sawyer – the game’s project director – will be streaming some brand new content, to show off what’s been done since the backer beta. If you want to watch that, it’ll be on http://www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive at 9pm GMT/1pm PST on 15 January. I probably won’t be watching it, because I’d really like to go into Pillars of Eternity totally fresh.
And I don’t have to wait too long to do that! 26 March, everyone. Pillars of Eternity. Not long at all.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
