Independent games publisher Versus Evil in partnership with Obsidian Entertainment today announced that Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will launch on Nintendo Switch on August 8th for $49.99 / € 49,99 / £ 44.99. Consumers can now digitally pre-order the game through the Nintendo Switch eShop and receive a 20% discount on the game.
Nintendo Switch players and newcomers to the Pillars universe will get to experience the deep sense of exploration and discovery in a meticulously crafted RPG adventure that was made possible by over 70,000 backers on Kickstarter. Not only will players journey across an original fantasy realm filled with monster infested dungeons and challenges, but they’ll also explore the expanded world and content of the games two part DLC, The White March: Parts I & II.
In addition to that Nintendo Switch players will also benefit from all the major updates from the original PC version, including a raised level cap, expanded party AI options, and new difficulty levels to build out the ultimate RPG adventure.
For its part, Versus Evil General Manager Steve Escalante said: “We are thrilled to be announcing that Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition is launching on Nintendo Switch in August. Our continued partnership with Obsidian reaffirms our combined commitment in delivering one of the best RPG experiences available to Nintendo Switch players.”
In Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition players can build out their chosen character and customize their hero as one of eleven classes across any of the six available races, Human, Aumaua, Dwarf, Elf, Godlike and Orlan. Players can side with various factions using the games reputation system and craft their own story with the allegiances they make along the way, including a party of companions that can join their adventure. This is a realm where choices have far reaching consequences and the chosen path can decide the fate of your party.
With strategic real-time with pause based combat, additional side quests and an epic universe to explore, Pillars of Eternity on Nintendo Switch provides players with the portable opportunity to craft their own compelling RPG with a fantastical world, tactical combat, and an unforgettable storyline that can be taken anywhere they go.
Lastly, the teams at Obsidian Entertainment and Versus Evil would like to thank fans for their patience as they work hard to bring Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire to all consoles. They can’t wait to share more information next month when the game appears at Gamescom and PAX events where more insights on the game will be revealed.
