The Lifetime of These Pillars Really Are Eternity
Obsidian Entertainment’s 2015 RPG Pillars of Eternity debuted on PC. Two years later, it came out on PS4 and Xbox One. Two years after that, the Nintendo Switch is adding Pillars of Eternity to its catalogue. If you are an RPG fan and a Switch owner, this is great news. The Pillars of Eternity Nintendo Switch release is coming out in August followed by the console release of its sequel sometime this year. 2018’s Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will be released on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch thanks to last year’s crowdfunding campaign.
The Pillars of Eternity Twitter account announced the release date yesterday. Fans can pre-order right now on Nintendo’s website. The Nintendo Switch release is not just the base game. The Complete Edition comes with both parts 1 and 2 of The White March content and all content added to the PC version. There does not appear to be any bonuses for pre-ordering, but either way, fans do not have to wait long. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will be available on Nintendo Switch on August 8th. This sure is a week of surprise Nintendo ports. Just yesterday, the classic Doom Trilogy was released without warning on the Switch.
Greetings, Watchers! We are happy to announce that the original Pillars of Eternity adventure is coming to the Nintendo Switch on August 8th, complete with both of the White March expansions!
