    Megan is most likely on OW2 and Dollarhyde is helping Sawyer.

    Yeah, notice how they don't mention the words "Pillars of Eternity" anywhere on the website or in the trailer description. They only say the game set in "the fantasy world of Eora" (a name which only more serious fans will recognize). They're afraid it would turn people off, I guess.

    But of course there's still time.

    The only thing I honestly wonder at this point is whether it will be possible to have a playstyle. Will it be about completing objectives, with multiple avenues supported? Or will it be about killing all the things with your choice of lightning bolt or fireball?

    Seeing the "sword in one hand, magic in the other" turns my stomach. I never want to play a "y'know just a bunch of stuff you can do" type character.

    Because Todd flooded the market with Skyrim remasters and versions for every conceivable system.
    In 20 years people will install Skyrim on their retinal holo displays as a joke.

    It could be one of two ways.
    Class-based with Multi class system or Skyrim's trash ''jack of all trades , master of all''.

    Like a short and vague trailer of something possibly very generic.

    Aedyr is the empire where they wear Togas, hate Animacy and has a human/Elves mixed society. Trailer also mentions Oaths so we get more of the burned queen.
    In theory, you can do something with that setting but we have to see what Obsidian do with it. At any case, I did not expect them to return to Eora for this game and since it's on Gamepass I don#t even need to buy it so I'll definetly play it.

    Given the recent offerings from Obsidian I'm not overly optimistic. Especially if UE4 and mods don't work out.

    Why it is always the third game that experiences the greatest decline?

    I am interested what people who kickstartered PoE in 2012 would say if they knew that this would lead to a first person game. I am pretty sure that in 2012 this would feel like a greater betrayal than the kickstartered game ending up to not be as good as expected.

    - Do you hate those 3d action games and would instead play a glorious RPG with prerendered backgrounds?
    - Yes I do!
    - Joke is on you. It's a 3d action game now!

    Should it be not much unlike Morrowind or Daggerfall in a modern coating, I wouldn't oppose.

    That's a pipedream of course.

    I liked the Eora setting in PoE1, less so in PoE2. No overlap between the established predecessors and this new trailer though. Thats not necessarily bad but curious. Its not even 'PoE:Avowed'. Late decision to disassociate a bit?

    Not sure why everyone is assuming that it's going to be a TES competitor. I doubt Microsoft is going to dump the amount of money needed to make such a project on Obsidian. It's likely going to be of a much smaller game, like TOW. Probably be closer to something like Arx Fatalis in scale. Anyway, it's just another fantasy RPG. I have no further interest in this. I'll keep my eye out for all the juicy butthurt that always follows an Obsidian release, but that's as far as my interest here goes.

    I don't really follow Obsidian these days, so could someone tell me if they would have started working on this game before being bought by Microsoft or not.

    This'll be another undercooked mediocrity just like everything else they've made in the past decade.

    Because they said so, multiple times. Feargus even introduced it as their new *big rpg* right before the trailer.
