Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity Now Available to Pre-order


Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian Entertainment’s gorgeous tribute to Infinity Engine cRPG classics such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment, is due for release sometime during the first quarter of 2015, and to begin the countdown to launch the game’s pre-order campaign just kicked off this week on Steam, GOG.com, Gamersgate, the Paradox Store and some other PC gaming digital download services (though most are simply offering keys to activate through Steam). Choose your preferred online shop by visiting buy.pillarsofeternity.com.

You’ve got two pre-purchase options: the $44.99 base game Hero Edition, and the $59.99 Champion Edition, which includes a host of digital extras including the official soundtrack, a campaign almanac containing 35 pages of lore and developer commentary, a making of documentary, a high-resolution map of the game world, some desktop wallpapers, and sound clips to use as mobile phone ringtones.

Pre-ordering either version comes with the added bonus of two mystery items to be revealed at a later date. For the next two weeks, pre-orders will also be available at a 10% discount, so you can save a few bucks if you jump in early.

Now turn your attention to the new gameplay trailer to see why Pillars of Eternity was crowdfunded to the tune of $4.5 million.
