Today, Paradox Interactive announced that Obsidian Entertainment's Pillars of Eternity would receive a relaunch in the form of Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition, which includes the base game, both White March expansions, and an all-new bundle called the "Deadfire Pack", which is inspired by the yet-to-be-released sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
This new release brings the PC release to be more in line with the console version that was released earlier this year.
The Definitive Edition will be available for PC, Mac, and Linux on November 15th, 2017. The Deadfire DLC will be made free to all existing and future owners of the title, in an effort to "thank them for the ongoing support... in the final, all-encompassing release."
The repackaged title will launch via digital distribution for $39.99, and will include the following:
- The original Pillars of Eternity title, along with the White March: Parts I & II expansion.
- All premium content originally sold with Pillars of Eternity: Royal Edition, which includes including the original soundtrack, a digital collector's book, a making-of documentary and an original novella set in the Pillars universe by Chris Avellone.
- The all-new Deadfire Pack DLC, which includes new in-game items and new portraits from the forthcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, releasing in 2018.
Quick TakeSeems like an excellent idea for those still on the fence, along with some great marketing for the sequel. For those that are curious, the making of documentary is worth the extra ten dollars alone, let alone all of the extras that are included, such as the soundtrack and the strategy guide.
