Pillars of Eternity sells 500k copies
Sales milestone reached for RPG, spinoff content is coming
Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive have announced that Pillars of Eternity has crossed a new milestone, and has now sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.
This number includes fans who backed Pillars of Eternity on Kickstarter, as well as new sales. In addition to its two-part expansion The White March, Obsidian has plans to continue to expand upon this universe across several forthcoming releases.
A tabletop card game based on the Pillars of Eternity world, Lords of the Eastern Reach, has also been announced for a 2016 release. In addition, several digital books (“eBooks”) are slated to release this year featuring the characters and lore of Pillars of Eternity, authored by members of the game’s core writing team, including Carrie Patel, Eric Fenstermaker, and Paul Kirsch.
Pillars of Eternity is a CRPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. The game was funded via Kickstarter in late 2012, raising $4.5 million through both backer pledges on Kickstarter and Obsidian’s own website.
