Pillars of Eternity Exceeds 500,000 Worldwide Sales

By Published October 24, 2015 at 8:30 am

Old-school styled cRPG Pillars of Eternity has now sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.

Pillars of Eternity was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, the company that brought us Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and, if your memory’s really good, Alpha Protocol. Obsidian was joined by publishers Paradox Interactive for this project, announcing their collaboration at last year’s GDC event.

Pillars of Eternity is an isometric perspective RPG heavily inspired by early RPGs, like Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment. Separate from those games, Pillars of Eternity uses its own game mechanics and doesn’t use the Dungeons & Dragons system.

When developers Obsidian Entertainment and publishers Paradox Interactive brought the project to Kickstarter, it set a record for most money for a crowd-funded video game -- obviously this has since been smashed to bits by Star Citizen -- with Pillars gathering $4,163,208 during its campaign. Pillars of Eternity is available on Steam for Windows and Linux, as is part one of The White March expansion.
