Earlier this year, our team at Paradox released our first game on Xbox One and the reaction blew us away. Turns out Xbox fans were eager to play more of the rich, replayable titles that our company is known for! Who could have guessed, eh? Well, good news: we’re thrilled to announce today that we’re pairing up with Obsidian Entertainment to bring the award-winning Pillars of Eternity to Xbox One.
For those of you encountering Pillars of Eternity for the first time, you’re in for an RPG experience that brings the best elements of old-school role-playing up to speed with modern gaming tech. This game is the result of one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of all time, backed by over 75,000 gamers who were hungry for the kind of experience they enjoyed with PC classics like Baldur’s Gate and Planescape: Torment, Pillars of Eternity may be Obsidian’s best game to date.
Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will include a broad selection of character options, award-winning story and writing, and a rich, original world realized in gorgeous artwork and animation. You’ll also get the most complete version of the game to date, including the two expansions released: The White March: Parts I & II. All of this, plus new enhanced console controls and UI, making the detailed party management and tactical combat a cinch on your controller.
Best of all, you don’t have to wait very long. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will be available for the Xbox One online and in stores on August 29, 2017.
We hope fans will be impressed with how the game looks and plays on the big screen. For those of you who aren’t Pillars of Eternity fans just yet, well, now’s your chance. We’re looking forward to discussing story spoilers with more of you once you’ve given it a try.
See you in the Eastern Reach!
