(Project) Pillars of Eternity Unveiled with Gameplay Trailer

Obsidian Entertainment’s Kickstarted homage to old-school RPGs, Project Eternity, appears to be right on track for its projected April 2014 launch.

In the biggest update we’ve seen on the project yet, we got the first gameplay trailer as well as a new name: Pillars of Eternity. If you’re as excited about this one as I am, I’m sure you’ll want me to dispense with the chit-chat and get right to the trailer:

There’s a brand-spanking new Pillars of Eternity website, which compiles all the previous updates Obsidian had been making on the Project Eternity forums in a pretty package. A formal backer portal is within the site, allowing those of you who contributed way back in 2012 to manage your pledges and link your accounts.

Obsidian also notes it’s not too late to pick up Pillars of Eternity at a lower backer price. Order now and you can grab a digital download of the RPG for $35.

With Pillars of Eternity and Wasteland 2 on the way, 2014 is shaping up to be an amazing year for classic RPG fans.

Great site, but it’s very confusing how they word things in their confirmation of backing process. They seem to imply that you haven’t paid yet (obviously untrue), and that the process involves payment. It doesn’t. You *can* choose to add extra stuff for extra money (ie above what you’ve asked and paid for already), but what they *actually* want is to get your shipping details, and how to break down the amount you’ve pledged. I’m part of the Obsidian Order of Eternity, so I had to explicitly state that as if it were some new add-on to my pledge. Thankfully, as an international backer, once they had my shipping details I didn’t have to specify that I wanted international shipping. But their language was still entirely “purchase” this and “proceed to checkout” that. Very confusing.
