    Today's long-awaited Kickstarter update for Obsidian's Project Eternity informs us that the game is now officially called Pillars of Eternity, and introduces its new official site and pledge management portal, where you can finally register for all those add-ons you paid money for last year. Besides general information about the game, the new site also comes with a bunch of new screenshots and artwork, as well as a short gameplay teaser video. Without further ado:​

    After months of hard work we are happy to present to you with Project Eternity's BIG update. We have lots of stuff to go over, so let's get into it.

    Teaser Trailer

    Through the hard work of the Project Eternity team we are proud to present our first in-game teaser trailer.


    Stretch Goal Poll

    We've always taken your pledges seriously and we remain committed to giving our backers every stretch goal you reached during the Kickstarter campaign. Budgeting a game of this size can be daunting, but we always remember the cornerstones of our pitch and the features you funded. Even so, there are two things we know a lot of you have asked for: more wilderness areas and more companions. Both of these are very time-consuming, but we understand why so many people want them. Because we've seen these requests more than a few times, we would like to ask the community if you would be interested in new stretch goals to fund additional development. If not, no worries: we're still going to deliver on everything you've backed. Please let us know your thoughts in this thread on our forums.

    Interviews and Articles

    That’s not all. We also have a plethora of new interviews with members of the Pillars of Eternity team. Check them out below.
    That’s it for the update. The Pillars of Eternity team and the whole Obsidian crew would like to thank you for all of your support and help in creating the game over this past year. You can’t imagine how rewarding it is to get to work on this game with all of our Backers. Here’s to another great year!
    Read the full update for detailed instructions on how to use the site's pledge management functionality. The site also allows non-backers to pledge for the game - as you can see from all those interviews and that stretch goal poll, Obsidian is trying to pull a bit of a Chris Roberts here. Finally, it's worth mentioning that according to that non-backer pledge page, the game's release date is now "Winter 2014".

    Animation is a bit naff, however it looks and seems to feel like Baldurs Gate or Icewind Dale. That's essentially what I pledged for so kudos to them.

    Graphics look great, animation requires a bit of work. Will this be more like IWD or a deeper cRPG?

    It should be a hybrid of all three IE games. As long as I can get my BG2 2 fix I don't really care.

    Some of the animations looked great, like the wizards utilizing their spellbooks while casting. The up close melee stuff however looked a bit limp, for lack of a better word. Not a fan of the choir music. Everything else looked fantastic.

    Yeah, we should inquire about more prestigious matters than graphics... Character creation, progression, dialogue, C&C etc. :obviously:

    Not all that excited about this trailer, but Infinity games were never made for trailers. The joy of these games isn't something that can be communicated in a few short clips and spell animations. Nice to see progress though. And looking at it... Yup, that's what I paid for!

    Wow. They already finished the mega-dungeon. http://youtu.be/CVV2teZErUg?t=13m30s

    That big Ogre swing brings back memories of ToEE.

    That "No sleep for the watcher" at the end...
    Funny because I have to go to sleep and wake up in 4 hours.

    Also, what's going on with that stretch goal for additional companions? I hope they're not bombarded with extra romance requests from Biofans

    :excellent:

    The in-depth interviews were more fun than that short, unfinished-looking video. They made the right call in keeping it a minute in length.

    Nathan Grayson can go to hell of course.

    It's kinda amusing to see RPS more hyped for a turn-based than a RTwP game.
