Pillars of Eternity, the ultimate role-playing experience on PC, comes to Xbox One!

From there, it released to broad critical acclaim, won dozens of awards, and has been a fan favorite on the PC. Now, Paradox Arctic has adapted this unmissable RPG for an entirely new audience on major consoles -- bringing Pillars' fantastical world, tactical combat, and unforgettable story to fans on a whole new platform. Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition includes all previously released additional content from the PC version, including all DLC and expansions in a single package.   But Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition goes beyond just offering everything together.

Players will be able to easily navigate the game's detailed character creation, real-time-with-pause combat, and party management from their couches thanks to new TV-friendly menus and controls.  Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition features: • Award-winning writing, story and artwork of Pillars of Eternity, along with the expanded world and content of The White March: Parts I & II • Countless character creation options, from races and classes to character backgrounds which drive your personal story • An epic universe to explore, filled with intriguing party members and companions, a variety of in-game factions, and a lovingly rendered world to traverse • All major updates from the original PC version, including a raised level cap, expanded party AI options, and new difficulty levels • New UI and controls designed from the ground up, presenting the Pillars of Eternity experience like never before

The outstanding classic-style RPG Pillars of Eternity makes a surprisingly virtuosic transition to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 with the Complete Edition, bringing both systems all of the content that's been released on the PC version so far. For an RPG of its complexity, it's surprising how pleasingly intuitive its gamepad control scheme is, and its easily legible text makes it feel just as good to play from the couch as from a desk. It's a memorable experience that suffers from only a few technical hiccups, most significantly its long and frequent loading times.

A surprisingly good port of a purposefully old school computer role-player, that proves even the most PC of games can work on consoles.

Despite the long load screens, I enjoyed my time with Pillars of Eternity, and look forward to continuing my journey through Eora. The setting and characters are wonderful, and anyone looking for a meaty, densely plotted RPG will find a lot to like. Simply put, games like this rarely get made, and seeing one on a console is like finding a unicorn egg in your cornflakes. If you have any interest in a playing a game like Baldur's Gate or Planescape: Torment again, you'd be doing yourself a disservice not picking this one up.

Ultimately, Pillars of Eternity is a stellar entry into its genre, but one that won't win over people who are not already fans. It is huge and richly detailed, with more history than some actual periods of real life, and a rare amount of care and attention. It's probably a better experience on a PC, but it's still definitely worth playing on console if it's your only option.
