Pillars Of Eternity further gameplay details and release date confirmed


#Obsidian already announced the release date for the highly anticipated #fantasy #RPG we all know as Pillars of Eternity! Of course the already released teaser trailer revealed character and gameplay details with a release date set for March 26.

Feargus Urquhart of Obsidian shared details on Pillars of Eternity soon after announcing the release date. In the press release, Urquhart said, “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. 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.”

Pointing out that the March release date is solid, Urquhart continued, “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.”

In these last few months the team is laser-focused on a few keys areas:

  • Polishing and Bugs. The entire team is busy fixing as many bugs as possible. We are also going through the existing content and polishing it up – check out the brigandine!
  • Finalization of… Everything. We are also in the process of finalizing everything from backer reward items to game boxes. It is quite a bit of stuff, but we are making great progress and everything is on track for the release date.
  • Showing Off the Game. In addition to finishing up the game and everything else surrounding it, we are also going to be showing off the game.

“Pillars of Eternity” is a fantasy RPG that “will take the central hero, memorable companions and the epic exploration of Baldur’s Gate, add in the fun, intense combat and dungeon diving of Icewind Dale, and tie it all together with emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.”

Gameplay details of Pillars of Eternity have been revealed initially by Obsidian, stressing that upon the release date, fans will experience a “contemporary tabletop fantasy role-playing games.” Familiar elements will welcome players like classic classes and races available, strength-based personal character inventories, discrete character levels, and even attribute scores.

Obsidian will be posting information about how you can redeem your game (and other backer rewards) on the Backer Portal.
