Pillars of Eternity, the popular RPG from Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Entertainment is getting a Definitive Edition for PC, Mac and Linux on November 15th. This announcement comes as a surprising move from Paradox, which is infamous for its "too many DLCs for a game" sort of thing.
The Definitive Edition is like a Game of The Year edition, and includes all the content from the game. That means you will get the following in it:
- Pillars Of Eternity (base game)
- White March I (expansion)
- White March II (expansion)
Additionally, the Definitive Edition adds all the content from the Royal Edition, such as the original soundtrack, a digital collector's book, novella set, etc for free. A new add-on called the Deadfire Pack DLC, will be released on November 15th, along with the Definitive Edition. This DLC will be free for all existing and future owners of the game. The DLC contains new in-game items, portraits from the upcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
In other words, the Definitive Edition looks to be the same as the Pillars of Eternity Ultimate Edition + the new DLC with an all new price.
The Pillars of Eternity Definitive edition will be priced at $39.99. The Hero Edition of the game will drop from $44.99 to a price of $29.99 permanently (which is around 33% off). The game currently costs Rs. 929 on Steam, in India. So we can expect a price tag of around Rs. 623 for the base game.
