Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity is an isometric fantasy RPG from Obsidian Entertainment that intends to capture the feeling and gameplay of older RPGs like Planescape: Torment and Baldur's Gate. Based upon an entirely original IP, Pillars of Eternity was one of Kickstarter's big video game success stories, earning about $4 million in funding.

Gameplay is party-based with battles taking place in a pausable, realtime tactical format. Customization will be important with physical appearahce up to the player, along with race, class (there are 11), traits, culture, and skills all open choice. Up to five companions can also join the player on the adventure, which takes place in a world where a supernatural event has taken place, triggering conflict and problems.

FEATURES

  • Adventure Your Way | Extensive customization lets you creare your character, choose from 11 different classes, race, skills, traits, and more.
  • New Original Fantasy IP | Taking place in a magic-filled world based around medieval technology, Pillars of Eternity draws inspiration from classic RPGs and puts its own spin on things with an all new IP and story.
  • Realtime Tactical Party Combat | Time to strategize and play to your and your companions' strengths with a combat system that unfolds in realtime (that you can pause).
