Pillars of Eternity delayed for early 2015 release


What's been called the next great RPG for PC Pillars of Eternity has been pushed for an early 2015 release. The game which began development since 2012 was set for a late 2014 release has now been delayed according to Obsidian and Paradox entertainement. The following post was made on the Paradox Entertainment forums yesterday:

"Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive announced today that the highly anticipated
fantasy role-playing game Pillars of Eternity, originally scheduled for release in late 2014, has
been delayed until early 2015.

Feedback through the beta process from those who backed Pillars of Eternity on Kickstarter
has been extremely helpful. The development team are listening to the feedback and are
incorporating changes to ensure fans absolutely get the best game possible. This short delay
will allow Obsidian to produce the quality of game that they can be rightly proud of.

"Since the very beginning of this project we promised our fans and ourselves that we would
release this game only when we knew it would be absolutely ready for the best experience
possible. We're very close to that point, but not quite there yet. The feedback we have received
through our playtest process has been invaluable to us. We are coming into the home stretch
but are pushing the release out just a bit to make sure we honor that promise we made originally.
Thanks for your patience and support, it will be worth the wait." – Feargus Urquhart, CEO Obsidian.

Both Obsidian and Paradox are aware of the anticipation the thousands of people who donated to
the Pillars of Eternity Kickstarter campaign have, many of whom have been clamoring for a game
in the style of classic role-playing games for years. And, rest assured, no one is more anxious for
the completion and release of this game than we are. However, we are excited to get the extra
time to incorporate the feedback and add additional polish.

Your enthusiasm and support has been energizing for everyone and we're just as excited as you are
for this game to come out and kick this new renaissance of classic style CRPG's into high gear!

Pillars of Eternity - More than just an RPG

This fantasy RPG, which as mentioned some are calling the next great PC RPG, draws similar aspects from Dragon Age and Baldur's Gate, with a party-based real time with pause gameplay while incorporating rules from Dungeons and Dragons.

The short gameplay teaser above gives a glimpse of what to expect for the new and fantastic RPG. Taking bits from popular RPGs in the past and perhaps improving on them this may well be the next best RPG.
