Obsidian Entertainment’s games have always been known for their vividly elaborate plots and immense settings (Fallout: New Vegas, Neverwinter Nights 2). Its latest title, Pillars of Eternity, is every bit as vast and intricate and has a depth that can rival any game. It is the kind of artwork that an artist would consider as one of his most remarkable creations, a work true to his own soul.
This real time strategy fantasy RPG is as unforgiving as it is rewarding and it juggles these two concepts like a carnie veteran. In its epic 50-80 hour saga the effects of every choice you make, from character creation to dialogue choices to chosen companions, will ripple through the entirety of the game.
