Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire has been announced for all current generation hardware, which interestingly enough, includes the Nintendo Switch.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire was originally announced as a PC exclusive, which is exactly how the first one came and went. The first was a Kickstarter project that earned a ton of funding, and down the line was announced and release for PS4 and Xbox One. With the second also being crowdfunded, except this time on their own website. It earned more backing than the previous and is looking to be a proper great sequel.
Deadfire hasn’t even released on PC yet, and Obsidian Entertainment has already confirmed that it will also be coming to consoles in the same year. The PC version will be released sooner than expected though with an official launch date of April 3rd, so be prepared to jump back into the world of Eora. No current console was left out this time too, which means Nintendo Switch owners are getting more love.
No release date has been given just yet on when the console versions will release, but it’s said to be coming out this Holiday season according to GameInformer. Which has since been confirmed by Obsidian through IGN.
If you haven’t played the series yet, now would be a good time. The games focus heavily on story and play somewhat similar to Diablo in combat (somewhat), and it has sold well for a good reason. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
