Pillars of Eternity, the ultimate role-playing experience on PC, comes to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, this fall! Created by and for role-playing fans by Obsidian Entertainment, masters of the RPG genre, Pillars started as a Kickstarter project, where it shattered all funding goals and pulled in more than 75,000 backers. From there, it released to broad critical acclaim, won dozens of awards, and has been a fan favorite on the PC. Now, Paradox Arctic, in partnership with 505 Games, is bringing Pillars' fantastical world, tactical combat, and unforgettable story to fans on a whole new platform. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition includes all previously released additional content from the PC version, including all DLC and expansions in a single package. Pillars of EternityÂ is aÂ role-playing video gameÂ developed byÂ Obsidian EntertainmentÂ and published byÂ Paradox Interactive. It was released forÂ Microsoft Windows,Â OS X, andÂ LinuxÂ on March 26, 2015. The game is aÂ spiritual successorÂ to theÂ Baldur's GateÂ andÂ Icewind DaleÂ series, along withÂ Planescape: Torment. Obsidian started aÂ crowdfundingÂ campaign onÂ KickstarterÂ for it in September 2012. The campaign raised over US14.69 AEDÂ million, which was the highest funded video game at the time. The game uses theÂ UnityÂ engine. The game takes place in theÂ fantasyÂ world of Eora, mainly inside the nation of Dyrwood. The infants in the Dyrwood are plagued by a recent phenomenon in which they become "hollowborn" upon birth, meaning they are born with no soul. During the beginning of the game, the protagonist experiences an awakening of power due to a disastrous supernatural event, discovering they are a "Watcher": a person who can see past lives and interact with souls. The objective of the game is to find out what caused their awakening and how to solve the hollowborn problem. Pillars of EternityÂ received critical acclaim upon its release; many critics praised the game for its world and immersive writing, along with the strategic combat, and also said that it is a worthy successor to the games it was inspired by. The game also won various awards and accolades, including best RPG of 2015. A two-partÂ expansion pack,Â The White MarchÂ was released in August 2015 and February 2016, respectively. A sequel,Â Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, was released in May 2018. Pillars of EternityÂ is a role-playing game that features aÂ party-basedÂ real-time-with-pausetactical gameplay, fixedÂ isometricÂ user interfaceÂ for the game-world with two-dimensional pre-rendered backdrops,in a similar vein as its spiritual predecessorsÂ Baldur's Gate,Â Icewind DaleÂ series andÂ Planescape: Torment.As the player's characters explore an area map, it is unveiled. There is aÂ fog of warÂ effect on areas the player has already explored and has moved away from.The character classes and game mechanics are similar toÂ Dungeons & Dragons,but are a proprietary system created for the game. The game does not reward experience points for killing enemies, only for completing quests and discovering new areas. This means that non-violent approaches such as stealth are just as rewarding. The game starts with a character creation screen where the player can choose items for their playable character, such as their physical appearance, race andÂ creed.The player can choose to play as one of the eleven available classes: fighter, barbarian, paladin, ranger, wizard, druid, monk, priest, rogue, chanter and cipher.Each of them make the gameplay different; for example, the cipher can use the soul of an enemy in order to attack them,Â and druids can shapeshift into a beast and cast spells.The protagonist's class can also influence the number of available dialogue options.The player may adventure with up to five other characters out of a total of eight that they can pick up on their travels.These are fleshed out characters with unique personalities and appearances.Additionally, the protagonist can hire party members which the player creates in local taverns, but at a monetary cost.
