Obsidian announced that 2015's Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition will launch for PC on November 15. We saw the Complete Edition launch for consoles earlier this year, and this release seems like the PC analog: It will bundle the base game with its two expansions, The White March Parts I and II. The Definitive Edition will also bundle in the digital goodies from the Royal Edition of the game, including the original soundtrack and original novella. The bundle will retail for $39.99.
In addition to bundling these together, the Definitive Edition will also include a new small Deadfire Pack DLC, which will include new items and portraits linking Pillars of Eternity to next year's Deadfire sequel. This DLC pack will also be a free download for all current and future copies of Pillars of Eternity. We have the original press release below.
The award-winning title is now available as Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition, a comprehensive version of Obsidian’s crowdfunded masterpiece that includes both White March expansions, all premium extras, and an all-new bundle of content, called the “Deadfire Pack,” inspired by Obsidian’s upcoming Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
Definitive Edition will be available for PC, Mac, and Linux on November 15, 2017. The new Deadfire Pack DLC will also be made available for free to all existing (and future) owners of Pillars of Eternity on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs to thank them for their ongoing support of what has become one of the world’s most beloved RPGs. With these additions, fans will have the complete set of all Pillars of Eternity content ever created inside and outside of the game in the final, all-encompassing release.On November 15, the Definitive Edition will be made available via digital distributors everywhere for a suggested retail price of $39.99, and will include:
- The original Pillars of Eternity, a modern RPG with classic inspiration, and winner of multiple awards for its rich story, art, and world design
- The complete, expanded world, characters, and content from The White March: Parts I & II, which adds new places to travel and quests to complete
- All premium content originally sold with Pillars of Eternity: Royal Edition, including the original soundtrack, a digital collector's book, an original novella set in the Pillars universe, and much, much more
- The all-new Deadfire Pack DLC, which includes new in-game items to earn and discover, and new portraits from the forthcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, releasing in 2018
Alongside the release of the Definitive Edition, the original Pillars of Eternity: Hero Editiongame will receive a suggested retail price reduction to $29.99 on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs.
Pillars of Eternity, originally the result of a crowdfunding campaign by over 75,000 backers, has led a resurgence in the classic RPG genre since its release in 2015. Winner of “Best RPG” from multiple critics, the game is now available for both PC and console platforms from retailers worldwide. A sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, is currently in development by Obsidian Entertainment.
