Paradox Interactive to publish Obsidian Entertainment’s Pillars of Eternity

Posted on March 19, 2014 AT 05:03am

Obsidian Entertainment has announced a partnership with Paradox Interactive to help with the launch of its crowdfunded RPG Pillar’s of Eternity.

Paradox Interactive will be in charge of marketing and distributing the PC game when it launches later this year, according to the developer, allowing Obsidian to concentrate solely on development.

“When we signed this partnership we called it two independent players in the games industry supporting each other to stay independent by doing what we do best,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “The fans backing this game-many of us included-are looking forward to a classic RPG as envisioned by the designers at Obsidian, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get.”

Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart assured fans that all of the $4.5 million raised via crowdfunding would be spent on the development of the game. ”This game would not have happened if not for the passion and generosity of our backers, and their faith in us to create the game they wanted,” said Urquhart.

“How we are developing Pillars of Eternity has not, and will not be, changed; we will deliver the game we promised to our backers, and we will deliver it this year. Having Paradox as a partner, with their expertise in independent games like Pillars of Eternity, lets us put all of our focus on making an incredible game.”
