E3 2017: Hands-On With the Console Edition of Pillars of Eternity
What do you call a CRPG that's played on a console?
06.21.17 - 10:01 PM

Obsidian's critically-acclaimed Pillars of Eternity has been one of the greater gaming success stories from Kickstarter, and has certainly played a hand in reviving the classic CRPG gameplay for modern audiences. Pillars earned a two-part expansion and has a full-fledged sequel on the way in 2018, but has remained PC-only so far. Not surprising, given the type of game it is.

For PS4 and Xbox One users though, you're in luck: Obsidian has been hard at work adapting Pillars of Eternity for console play, with controller support and a UI designed for TVs. Oh, and it will include that aforementioned expansion, as well. We got to spend some time with it during E3, so read on for Rob's impressions!
