Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition Coming to Consoles This August

A Complete Edition of Pillars of Eternity has been announced, and while it includes both parts of The White March expansion, it's currently only slated to be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 (on August 29th, 2017). As you might have expected, the console version of the game will come with a revamped UI and a new control scheme created with a controller in mind. Important to note is that, according to Eurogamer, the console port is being created by Paradox Arctic, which allows Obsidian to focus on the next installment in the Pillars of Eternity series.

Frankly, I'm curious to see how they manage to make Pillars work on a controller, but we'll have to wait a couple of months for that. Right now, there's an announcement trailer:

And a short description:

Pillars of Eternity, the ultimate role-playing experience on PC, comes to Xbox One! Created by and for role-playing fans by Obsidian Entertainment, masters of the RPG genre, Pillars started as a Kickstarter project, where it shattered all funding goals and pulled in more than 75,000 backers. From there, it released to broad critical acclaim, won dozens of awards, and has been a fan favorite on the PC. Now, Paradox Arctic has adapted this unmissable RPG for an entirely new audience on major consoles -- bringing Pillars' fantastical world, tactical combat, and unforgettable story to fans on a whole new platform. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition includes all previously released additional content from the PC version, including all DLC and expansions in a single package.

But Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition goes beyond just offering everything together. Paradox Arctic has thoroughly updated the Xbox One version of the award-winning RPG for play with a controller, and have entirely redesigned the UI for easy viewing on televisions. Players will be able to easily navigate the game's detailed character creation, real-time-with-pause combat, and party management from their couches thanks to new TV-friendly menus and controls.
