Pillars of Eternity set to release on March 26


New game content livestreaming today on Twitch

Obsidian Entertainment’s massively successful crowdfunded role-playing game Pillars of Eternity has been given a worldwide release date of March 26. Weighing in at around $4.5 million raised in backer pledges and pre-purchases through Obsidian’s website, I think it’s a pretty safe bet that fans of the old-school, party-basedcRPG genre are looking forward to this one.

For those interested in getting a look at a selection ofnew game content, alive stream isscheduled for today hosted by Josh Sawyer, the game’s project director, who will “take viewers on a journey through the world of Pillars of Eternity to show what has been accomplished since the release of the backer beta.”

I’m curious to see how things have turned out since then. In my time with the backer beta, I wasn’t won over with what was on display. Given that it was an early build, I’m not going to be overly critical, but I am hopeful that what we see today is a marked improvement.
