Independent games publisher Versus Evil and Obsidian Entertainment have announced that Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will launch on Nintendo Switch on 8 August. 

Nintendo Switch players and newcomers to the Pillars universe will get to experience the deep sense of exploration and discovery in a meticulously crafted RPG adventure that was made possible by over 70,000 backers on Kickstarter. Not only will players journey across an original fantasy realm filled with monster-infested dungeons and challenges, but they’ll also explore the expanded world and content of the games two-part DLC, The White March: Parts I & II.  

In addition to that, Nintendo Switch players will also benefit from all the major updates from the original PC version, including a raised level cap, expanded party AI options, and new difficulty levels to build out the ultimate RPG adventure.

In Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition players can build out their chosen character and customize their hero as one of eleven classes across any of the six available races: Human, Aumaua, Dwarf, Elf, Godlike, and Orlan. Players can side with various factions using the games reputation system and craft their own story with the allegiances they make along the way, including a party of companions that can join their adventure. This is a realm where choices have far-reaching consequences and the chosen path can decide the fate of their party. 

The game will retail for $49.99. Players can now digitally pre-order the game through the Nintendo Switch eShop and receive a 20% discount on the game.
