Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire was originally released back in May 2018 on PC. A console version was due to arrive this year but, as it turns out, it’s going to miss 2019 by almost a full month. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are now set to launch on January 28, 2020.
There’s still no word on when the Nintendo Switch version will eventually arrive, but hopefully it shouldn’t be too far off now that Obsidian’s old-school RPG is on other consoles.
As the name suggests, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire – Ultimate Edition comes with all of the previously released DLC included. There’s even a collector’s edition that’s bundled with a fetching statue of Od Nua and a couple of other trinkets. This will set you back $130/£120/€130.
The original PC version was awarded a score of 8/10 in GameSpot’s review. “Deadfire is dense, and it isn’t a small game, easily dwarfing its predecessor in terms of scale,” reviewer Daniel Starkey said. “There’s a lot to do, and it’s easier than ever to get lost in the little stories you find, without following the arcs that the game has specially set out for you. Still, it’s worth taking your time. The richness of Deadfire takes a while to appreciate, and like the brined sailors that call it home, you’ll be left with an indelible attachment to these islands when you do finally step away.”
