Developer Obsidian Entertainment has announced its partnership with publisher Paradox Entertainment for upcoming PC role-playing game, Pillars of Eternity. The publisher will be looking after marketing and distribution for the game, with Obsidian Entertainment retaining full control of development.
Originally known as Project Eternity, Pillars of Eternity drew over $4.1 million in funding as a Kickstarter project. The game will combine elements of role-playing titles like Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment.
Obsidian Entertainment CEO Feargus Urquhart confirmed the money raised via the crowdfunding campaign will be spent solely on the game’s development. He also confirmed that the game would be released in 2014, stating “we will deliver the game we promised to our backers, and we will deliver it this year.”
Earlier this year, it was announced that Pillars of Eternity would be delayed from its original release date to the second half of 2014.
