Pillars of Eternity, which still stands as the second most-funded video game on Kickstarter, finally releases today. It’s also getting some rather positive reviews scores, which we’ve rounded up for you.
The isometric, party-based RPG from Obsidian Entertainment was one of the first video game projects to take to Kickstarter, and hit its $1.1 million funding goal in just over 24 hours.
By the time funding closed on Kickstarter, 73,986 backers had pledged $3,986,929, and with PayPal pledges from the official website taken into account, Obsidian had earned $4.3 million in pledges.
Pillars of Eternity will go live today on Steam at 9am PDT/12pm EDT/4pm UK.
