Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Hitting Consoles Early Next Year

Time to gather the party back together console crew because the excellent Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will be unleashing on January 28th 2020 for PS4 and Xbox One.

The Deadfire Ultimate Edition takes what made the original RPG so compelling and ramps up the stakes, formula and story. At long last, You’ll be able to play in either Real-Time or Turn-Based modes depending on how you prefer an RPG served (I am a sucker for old school so give me Turn-Based any day of the week!). You’ll also have over 1000 class permutations to build and work from that gives a layer of depth and customisation few modern RPG’s have (Divinity Original Sin II and Path of Exile still reign king though, certainly check those out!)

On top of the huge world to explore, you’ll be getting the Beast of Winter, Forgotten Sanctum and Seeker Slayer DLC with the ultimate edition, we are talking well over a 100 hours of stuff to murder and explore here folks.

Still not convinced? Check out the launch trailer below.
