Pillars of Eternity Teaser Trailer and Screens - March 19, 2014
Obsidian Entertainment has announced that it's partnering with Paradox Interactive for the launch of its latest RPG, Pillars of Eternity.
The game has been funded through both Kickstarter and backer pledges on the Obsidian website to the tune of $4.5 million. Obsidian intends to spend all funds on the development of the game.
"This game would not have happened if not for the passion and generosity of our backers, and their faith in us to create the game they wanted," said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. "How we are developing Pillars of Eternity has not, and will not be, changed; we will deliver the game we promised to our backers, and we will deliver it this year. Having Paradox as a partner, with their expertise in independent games like Pillars of Eternity, lets us put all of our focus on making an incredible game."
"When we signed this partnership we called it two independent players in the games industry supporting each other to stay independent by doing what we do best," said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. "The fans backing this game—many of us included—are looking forward to a classic RPG as envisioned by the designers at Obsidian, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get."
