Pillars Of Eternity RPG Now Available To Pre-order, New Trailer Too

By - | Views: 14,445
Pillars of Eternity, the massive RPG to come from Obsidian Entertainment & Paradox Interactive is set to release early next year, and it's now up for pre-order with Linux support.

Note: We never recommend pre-ordering to prevent being let down by last minute delays, which happen a lot.

It's another game we have Kickstarter funding to thank for, as it raised a massive $3.9 Million dollars on it. I don't personally fund anything now, but I am grateful for those who are willing to risk it so that the rest of us get some great games.

It really does look fantastic, and it's not surprising it's being called "the next great PC RPG" by a number of places.

About the game
Prepare to be enchanted by a world where the choices you make and the paths you choose shape your destiny. Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas™ and South Park: The Stick of Truth™, together with Paradox Interactive is proud to present Pillars of Eternity.

Although often buggy, Obsidian is very good at making games and I think they'll get it right with this one. Luckily the preorder discount is till 24th Nov, I've got enough time to decide between this or save money for my new rig but I'm definitely buying this.

It's a Unity game. So I'll most definitely wait for several Linux reviews before touching this one with a ten foot pole.

Never Pre-order! But I think I will buy this when it will be released.

No preorder here.

This is the game I am waiting for since early 2013. But I will not pre-order.
I'll wait for the official release and, maybe with a little luck, it will come with a Steam sale discount.

What I like it's the fact that they never had any doubts about the Linux version. They never played with that aspect and announced it early in the development.

It's my kind of game and it looks awesome!

as linux was a quickly reached stretchgoal I decided to back the project on kickstarter.
can't wait to finally play it.
I'm just afraid that too many epic rpgs will be released for linux at the same time
and I don't know which to play first :}
bad luck I already finished wasteland 2 so no idea which rpg I should play during the cold winter days, as all the games I'm waiting for seem to be released in q1/15.

Kickstarted it with $110. So excited that it is not too long now .

Funny, I kickstarted it way back when, but the more I hear about it, the less I like it.

Didn’t enjoy New Vegas much (too complex) nor The Stick of Truth (stupid reflex-based fights), and neither do I like CRPGs like this. Too bad they didn’t decide to do something like Fallout 3, that would have been awesome.

Fallout 3 looks great but it's absolutely not in the same category.

Pillars of Eternity is the evolution of games like Baldur's Gate, Planescape: Torment, Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale.

Of all my experiences as a gamer, this is the kind of stuff that gets me dependent. You'll need a crowbar to get me off my pc screen! Probably because, in my youth, I was an AD&D Second Edition hardcore player (just gave you a hint about my age). :)

This is what's great in the gaming offerings... There's plenty of choices for all kind of players. And now, we have that many choices even on Linux!
