No word yet on the Switch version, unfortunately.
Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire may not have had the success the studio wanted but that’s thankfully not halting any console plans. After some delays, the developer and publisher Versus Evil announced that Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Ultimate Edition would release on January 28th 2020 for Xbox One and PS4. Check out the latest trailer below (which incorrectly says 2019 instead of 2020).
The story focuses on the deity Eothas who awakens from beneath the Watcher’s keep and wreaks havoc. Having stolen a part of the Watcher’s soul, it’s now their duty to find Eothas and put a stop to his schemes. Character customization, decision making and an extensive cast of characters are rounded out by ship combat and all of the DLC.
Even better is the inclusion of turn-based combat along with real-time with pause. Suffice to say that those looking for a solid 100 hour journey might want to pick up Pillars of Eternity 2, especially with the amount of replay value it holds. Sadly, there’s no word on when the Switch version will release but stay tuned for future updates.
