Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition coming to Nintendo Switch in August

The award-winning RPG Pillars of Eternity is coming to the brilliant handheld console Nintendo Switch on 8th of August under the name of Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition. Its price is set to $49.99 / €49.99 and £44.99 and the game can already be pre-ordered via the Nintendo Switch eShop. Those who do will receive a whopping 20 % discount on the game.

Steve Escalante, General Manager at the independent game publisher Versus Evil mentioned that they “are thrilled to be announcing that Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition is launching on Nintendo Switch in August. Our continued partnership with Obsidian reaffirms our combined commitment in delivering one of the best RPG experiences available to Nintendo Switch players.”

Pillars of Eternity has been a success story from the beginning, having over 70.000 backers on Kickstarter, and the game only expanded ever since. The Complete Edition will include the expanded universe and content of the two-part DLC; The White March: Parts I and Part II. This will ensure that Nintendo Switch players and newcomers to the Pillars universe can firsthand witness the deep sense of exploration found the Pillars of Eternity game. If you think this is worth the wait, there’s even more. Nintendo Switch players will also benefit from all the major updates from the original PC version, including a raised level cap, expanded party AI options and new difficulty levels.

If you are not yet familiar with Pillars of Eternity, it is an RPG with strategic real-time (and pause) based combat and includes a plethora of side quests. There are six available races; Human, Aumaua, Dwarf, Elf, Godlike and Orlan, and a total of eleven different classes to choose from. As expected from an RPG, players can side with various factions each with their own story and consequences for the choices the players will be making.
