Obsidian partnering up with Paradox on Pillars of Eternity

Pillars of Eternity

By on March 19, 2014 at 1:28 pm

Obsidian have announced that the distribution and marketing of their upcoming Kickstarter darling Pillars of Eternity will be handled by Paradox Interactive, allowing Obsidian to focus entirely 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,” is the claim from Paradox’s Fredrik Wester in an email statement today.

“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.”

The move is an interesting departure from the norm for Obsidian, but it makes sense: Paradox have the experience in marketing and distribution necessary to actually move a big RPG, and Obsidian are strictly a development house who don’t do anything else.

looking very forward to this

 

Yeah, I’m also looking forward to it. I backed this puppy, lets hope they deliver.

 

Excellent news! One of my favorite Devs partnering up with one of my favorite Publishers. Really looking forward to this. Obsidian are fantastic, and Paradox have slapped their name on and behind some of my most treasured games.
