Pillars of Eternity concludes with The White March – Part II
Three-and-a-half years ago, Obisidian Entertainment launched a Kickstarter campaign called “Project Eternity.” That campaign would become a massive success, leading to the release of the RPG Pillars of Eternity, a critical success in its own right. Inspired by classic games such as Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, Pillars of Eternity has sold over 700,000 units and was listed as one of Metacritic’s Best PC Games of 2015. It was also selected as one of our 5 Favorite Mac Games of 2015.
But that’s all in the past. Today, Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive released the expansion The White March – Part 2, which brings the game’s epic story to a close. The White March – Part 2 is available today on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs from digital retailers everywhere.
“It’s surreal to think about just how much this game has meant to us at Obsidian, and how much it’s changed us as a developer,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Working so closely with our backer community was a major part of the process, and helped us understand precisely what our fans wanted. Now, with Pillars of Eternity winning awards and standing as one of the biggest RPG releases of 2015, I’m proud to say we fulfilled our promise to our backers, and then some. Best of all, we’ve got plenty more stories we plan to tell within the world of Pillars of Eternity.”
And that’s certainly good news, because Pillars of Eternity has created a universe that will be worth visiting again and again. In case you haven’t yet played the game, the developers describe it thus:
Eternity aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPG’s that we enjoyed making – and playing. At Obsidian, we have the people responsible for many of those classic games and we want to bring those games back… and that’s why we’re here – we need your help to make it a reality!
Eternity 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 the emotional writing and mature thematic exploration of Planescape: Torment.
