Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire Coming To Xbox One, PS4, And The Switch Next Year
Despite the combined powers that is now Microsoft and Obsidian Entertainment, the latter studio announced a brand new property at The Game Awards earlier this month titled The Outer Worlds, and it looks fantastic. Known for their work in Fallout: New Vegas and the Pillars of Eternity series, Obsidian is a renown household in the role-playing and action genres. So, why not further the reach of their franchises? Coming soon to all console platforms, the developer finally announced a release window for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
Prior to the launch Deadfire, Obsidian and Versus Evil already had plans set in motion to release it for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and even the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, to successfully port the PC version onto three entirely different platforms wouldn’t be a easy. In the most recent forum update from Obsidian Entertainment, they’re coming in 2019! Unfortunately, an exact date has not been pinpointed. The studio said:
If you read our last update, we promised to have more information regarding Deadfire’s console release. As we stated, our partners at Grip Digital have been hard at work, and Deadfire will be releasing on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in 2019! We are pleased to also announce that the console edition will ship with all expansions, updates, and free DLC’s included at launch! We don’t have an exact date for you yet, but as soon as we have one, we will let you know!”
That isn’t exactly the best of reveals for those eagerly awaiting Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’s arrival on console, but it looks like Obsidian is hurrying as quickly as they can. In other related news, the studio just launched their latest DLC titled “The Forgotten Sanctum” alongside update 4.0. For those enjoying it on PC, now is the time to get on the latest rollout! There are brand new megabosses, subclasses, and various other bug fixes and updates.
Are you happy to see this game head to console platforms? What are your thoughts on playing titles or genres like these with a controller? I’m partial to PC myself, especially since they can be updated to keep up with modern tech capabilities. Consoles, on the other hand, don’t always age well.
