Pillars of Eternity – Forthcoming Updates Revealed, New UI & “Story Time” Mode Confirmed

Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive today revealed several forthcoming updates to Pillars of Eternity. Later this month, alongside the release of the game’s second expansion, The White March – Part 2, Obsidian will make new updates to the gameplay and features of Pillars of Eternity available for all players.

These updates will include a streamlined combat UI, updates to the in-game Stronghold and portions of the game world, a new “Story Time” game mode, and improvements to a broad variety of in-game features such as knockout injuries that change the difficulty during combat.

Version “3.0” of the game will arrive as a free update to all players of Pillars of Eternity on February 16, 2016, the same day as the release of The White March – Part 2.

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart said:

“We’re committed to expanding and supporting the Pillars of Eternity experience. We have many stories to tell in this world and this has only been the first one.”
