Pillars of Eternity is an upcoming role playing game (RPG) for Xbox One, having launched on PC back in 2015.
Pillars of Eternity was crafted by Obsidian Entertainment, perhaps best known for the Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth.
You might say Obsidian Entertainment is an expert when it comes to RPGs, but the company hasn't always had the most luck with publishers. The studio took to Kickstarter to fund Pillars of Eternity and retain independent control over the project, and it has been nothing short of a huge success. Now, thanks to Paradox Interactive, Pillars of Eternity is making the leap from PC to console.
I've been plunging the depths of Pillars of Eternity's dark dungeons and treacherous plains for a few weeks. You might wonder how a classic, isometric computer RPG with complex inventory systems and stat allocations might work on Xbox One, where a mouse is absent. Well, it works pretty damn well, and even at this early stage in the game, I'm confident in saying Xbox One RPG fans cannot ignore Pillars of Eternity, which is expected to launch for about $50 on August 29, 2017, for Xbox One.
