Pillars of Eternity, developer #ObsidianEntertainment‘s have finally revealed the release date for their Kickstarter #crowdfunded #RPG. You will be able to get your hands on the spiritual successor to those 90’s fantasy romps on March 26th, according to a Kickstarter blog post today from lead producer Brandon Adler.
The game will be available online and at retailers. The March 26th release is the first concrete date we have had for the game, which was previously scheduled for a winter 2014 release. This delay last October was to “incorporate as much feedback as possible, polish every nook and cranny of the game, and make sure we don’t ship a buggy game.”
“Everybody at Obsidian has been dedicated to ensuring that Pillars of Eternity is the game we said it would be ever since we launched the Kickstarter campaign,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “The community has been incredibly forthcoming with their feedback, and we want to thank all of our fans for being so engaged with the game’s development – and for giving us the time to implement their suggestions and ensure Pillars of Eternity is a game we can be proud of. We’ve used that time well, and the results will be worth the wait. The end is finally in sight, and our journey is nearly complete – at which point yours can begin.”
To show off the final build in anticipation of the March launch, Obsidian will be streaming on Twitch on Thursday January 15th at 9pm GMT. Project Director Josh Sawyer will host the stream, showing off some never-before-seen features. Watch the stream at the Paradox Twitch channel.
