Prepare for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’s Ultimate Edition, Coming to Consoles in January


Obsidian Entertainment, the developers behind Fallout: New Vegas and The Outer Worlds, is bringing an Ultimate Edition of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on Jan. 28, 2020.

Players who pick it up can expect to receive the base game and all three of the DLC content packs, called Beast of Winter, The Forgotten Sanctum, and Seeker, Slayer, Survivor.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is the sequel to Obsidian Entertainment’s hit Kickstarter RPG title, Pillars of Eternity, which launched in 2015. Players assume the mythical role known as the Watcher, a person with the ability to peer into other’s souls and view their memories. While the first game focused more on the hero’s journey, Deadfire centered around players sailing the high seas and exploring the world aboard their own ship.

The standard edition will run you $59.99 and contains everything mentioned above. For the superfan, though, there’s the Ultimate Collector’s edition, which comes with the base game, a 10-inch Od Nua statue, a keychain, a premium box, and a metal sticker. You can pick that up for $129.99.

For those eager to jump into the Pillars of Eternity for the first time on your console, you can catch up in the series by grabbing the first game on your console at the PlayStation, Nintendo, or Xbox digital storefront. Your actions and decisions from the first game will carry over to the sequel.
