After the release of Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition on consoles two months ago, it might not be surprising that Obsidian's RPG is set to receive a similar package on its home platform, entitled Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition. What makes this release definitive and not merely complete is that in addition to the White March expansion, it will also include a new Gun Runners' Arsenal-style DLC called the Deadfire Pack. The DLC will add portraits from the upcoming sequel to the game as well as an assortment of new items, and will be free for existing owners of Pillars of Eternity. Here's the press release for the Definitive Edition, which is coming on November 15th.
The award-winning title is now available as Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition, a comprehensive version of Obsidian’s crowdfunded masterpiece that includes both White March expansions, all premium extras, and an all-new bundle of content, called the “Deadfire Pack,” inspired by Obsidian’s upcoming Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.
Definitive Edition will be available for PC, Mac, and Linux on November 15, 2017. The new Deadfire Pack DLC will also be made available for free to all existing (and future) owners of Pillars of Eternity on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs to thank them for their ongoing support of what has become one of the world’s most beloved RPGs. With these additions, fans will have the complete set of all Pillars of Eternity content ever created inside and outside of the game in the final, all-encompassing release.
On November 15, the Definitive Edition will be made available via digital distributors everywhere for a suggested retail price of $39.99, and will include:
- The original Pillars of Eternity, a modern RPG with classic inspiration, and winner of multiple awards for its rich story, art, and world design
- The complete, expanded world, characters, and content from The White March: Parts I & II, which adds new places to travel and quests to complete
- All premium content originally sold with Pillars of Eternity: Royal Edition, including the original soundtrack, a digital collector's book, an original novella set in the Pillars universe, and much, much more
- The all-new Deadfire Pack DLC, which includes new in-game items to earn and discover, and new portraits from the forthcoming sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, releasing in 2018
Pillars of Eternity, originally the result of a crowdfunding campaign by over 75,000 backers, has led a resurgence in the classic RPG genre since its release in 2015. Winner of “Best RPG” from multiple critics, the game is now available for both PC and console platforms from retailers worldwide. A sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, is currently in development by Obsidian Entertainment.

Good excuse to replay the game and prepare a save import for Deadfire, eh? I wonder if Josh will put together one last balance patch for this release.
