Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition releases for the Nintendo Switch next month on August 8.
The spiritual successor to the Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale series will be released on the Nintendo eShop in Europe on August 8, and the US store will likely be updated with the listing shortly. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition includes all previously released additional content from the PC version, including all DLC and expansions in a single package. The complete edition of this gem was already released for the PS4 and Xbox One back in 2017.
Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition
Pillars of Eternity, originally the result of a crowdfunding campaign by over 77,000 backers, first released for PC platforms to broad critical acclaim, winning several awards for its rich story and deep, original world. Now, the original game, alongside the expansions The White March – Parts I & II, has been adapted for consoles as Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition, available today on consoles for the first time.
“Paradox is renewing its commitment to fans everywhere, no matter where and how they play games,” said Johan Sjöberg, CPO of publisher Paradox Interactive upon the announcement of the console versions back in 2017. “Experiences like the ones contained in Pillars of Eternity are the kind that define Paradox as a company: rich, replayable, and very personal. No two players will have the same journey through the story of Pillars. Everybody should have access to these iconic games, and that’s why we’re working with partners to share them with players on their platforms of choice.
Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition features:
- Award-winning writing, story and artwork of Pillars of Eternity, along with the expanded world and content of The White March: Parts I & II
- Countless character creation options, from races and classes to character backgrounds which drive your personal story
- An epic universe to explore, filled with intriguing party members and companions, a variety of in-game factions, and a lovingly rendered world to traverse
- New UI and controls designed from the ground up, presenting the Pillars of Eternity experience like never before
As said, the RPG will become available on the Nintendo Switch digitally on August 8. The title's sequel, Pillars of Eternity 2 - Deadfire, is slated for a Switch release this year as well.
