Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire seems to be firing on all cylinders as it launches today on PC. The sequel to the crowdfunded RPG (itself crowdfunded to the tune of nearly 4.5 million dollars) is getting fantastic scores from critics. Sitting right now at an 91/100 on OpenCritic, take a look at a few of the reviews below...
- GameSpace - 9.8/10 | Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire has taken Obsidian's formula of success and brought it to the new heights.
- GamesBeat - 9.2/10 | Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire puts the gods, warts and all, at the forefront of the story, and at this point, it shines when it focuses on your interactions with these powerful-but-flawed beings.
- WCCFTech - 9/10 | Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is an exceptional roleplaying experience that truly lets you forge your own path in a rich, multilayered, grog-soaked world. Occasionally the game is just a touch too retro for its own good, but, for the most part, Pillars of Eternity II proves Obsidian has set the right course. It's clear sailing ahead for the classic computer RPG.
- MMORPG.com - 10/10 | If you’re looking for the next, and perhaps greatest, grand cRPG; if you’re aching for an epic single player adventure; if you’re seeking a setting outside the norm; if you’re hoping for a story that takes you in and hangs on, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire fills the bill. It is something special, something you’ll want to play again and again and is a game that will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the genre’s best.
