Pillars of Eternity getting a physical GotY edition (White March included)


Recommended Posts

I was sort of hoping a GOTY edition would be released later on with a port to Unity 5 and a number of technical improvements.

 

Oh well... Here's to hoping for an enhanced edition, then.

I believe Pillars 2 will be the "enhanced" edition we're looking for.

 

After playing White March in patch 3.00 I have to agree.  Compare Russet Woods to Black Marsh Meadows and the Twin Elms temple district to Brackenbury and you see how far they came along in the course of development.  The system is significantly better (and I liked it a great deal originally), enemy design is better, and level design is much, much better.

What's wrong with Brackenbury? The Sanitarium is one of the coolest parts of the game, and Hadret House is definitely an interesting location!

 

Elms' Reach feels boring in comparison. (It does have beautiful graphics though.)

Porting to Unity 5 is so much work that it only makes sense commercially if they plan to sell this enhanced edition to a market that doesn't already own the game. That would mean either a port to consoles like W2 or D:OS did, or forcing people who already own the regular edition to pay again for the enhanced edition - neither of which are likely to happen.
