Obsidian Entertainment’s acclaimed RPG Pillars of Eternity is finally hitting consoles this August. In a statement from Paradox Interactive, the team expressed how proud they are of the game and how excited they are to announce that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can now experience it.
“Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition goes beyond just offering everything together. Paradox Arctic has thoroughly updated the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the award-winning RPG for play with a controller, and have entirely redesigned the UI for easy viewing on televisions. Players will be able to easily navigate the game’s detailed character creation, real-time-with-pause combat, and party management from their couches thanks to new TV-friendly menus and controls.”
Pillars of Eternity was funded through Kickstarter in 2012 and launched for PC three years later. Taking place in the fantasy world of Eora, players embark on a quest to solve why infants are suddenly being born with no souls.
Fans have been asking for a console version for some time now, and publisher Paradox will be delivering that request on August 29, 2017 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
In addition to the announcement that Pillars of Eternity would be coming to consoles, Paradox also announced that Cities: Skylines would be coming to PlayStation 4 after already releasing on Xbox One in April. Cities: Skylines is a city-building simulation that tasks players to develop an urban landscape and maintain its many systems like public services, transportation, population, employment, pollution, and more.
“The deep gameplay and unique charm have all been refined and optimized for play on a controller, and the new Edition will include the award-winning base game, bundled together with the popular After Dark expansion, allowing players to plan and design for their cities’ nightlife and tourist attractions. Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition will launch on August 15, 2017.”
Players only need to wait a couple short months before they can get the chance to pick up either game on consoles in August.
