Obsidian Entertainment to Erect the Pillars of Eternity in March


Obsidian Entertainment’s love letter to Infinity Engine cRPG classics like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale is oh so very close to completion.

Sticking to the Q1 2015 release target announced late last year when pre-orders went live, fantasy role-playing game Pillars of Eternity will officially launch on March 26th across worldwide retailers and digital storefronts like Steam, GOG.com, and others.

So you’ve got a couple months to catch up on as much of your 2014 backlog before this massive beast of a game hits. (In RPGs alone, I’ve still got Divinity: Original Sin, Wasteland 2, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Lords of the Fallen, Shadowrun Returns and Dragonfall Director’s Cut to start or finish. Yikes!)

Fans and Kickstarter backers eager to see more of what the game has to offer can tune in to a live stream at www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive tomorrow (that’s Thursday, January 15) at 1pm PST, during which Project Director Josh Sawyer will be showing off content that has never been seen before.

Until then, here’s a new screenshot giving an idea of the final coat of polish Obsidian is putting on Pillars of Eternity.

New hotness is definitely better than old hotness!
