Hey,

 

I just stared a new game in Pillars of Eternity 3.0. Of course I have noticed that there is a new title screen. Sadly the animation that plays whenever you start a new game doesn't fit with it at all with the new background.

 

Can we please have an option to use the pre-3.0 title screen again?

 

Best,

ShadowOwl

Hey ShadowOwl,

 

That would be an great idea but unfortunately there will be no option to set the title screen to the old version. 

 

Thanks for the feedback!

That's too bad because this new title screen does not suite the original game at all. It would suite the White March Expansion, but not the original game.

 

If the purpose of imposing this menu was to entice people to buy the expansion then it backfired (with me at least).

 

The original menu and overall presentation of the game was one of the main I was interested in playing it, but now that this bland snowy field is the first thing I see when I start the game, I have lost interest in playing it.

 

Which means I probably wont finish the game and therefore wont want to purchase the expansion. Great marketing!

Oh, interesting, i thought the image belongs to the expansion and not to the patch.

If one would know the storage location of this image …

I would love to have White March installed, but have the original PoE main screen.

 

The WM main screen is sweet and all but has too much Icewind Dale vibe.

I'd cast my vote for the original PoE title screen also. It better reflects the majority of the game and having to look at a snow-covered landscape on every launch gives me unnecessary chills. ;)
