'Pillars Of Eternity' Card Game 'Lords Of The Eastern Reach' Announced, Kickstarter Already Funded
Obsidian Entertainment has announced Pillars of Eternity: Lords of the Eastern Reach, a card game based on the developer's recent RPG.
The title will be developed by Zero Radius Games, and features multiplayer gameplay designed by Chris Taylor (Lead Designer, Fallout 1) along with Obsidian's own Scott Everts and John Lewis.
Like Pillars of Eternity before it, Lords of the Eastern Reach will be funded on Kickstarter--the campaign has already passed its goal. There are 33 days left in the attempt, but the funding already sits at more than $62,000 of a $30,000 goal. There's a video, images, and a description on the page.
The card game will feature characters, locations, and items from the Kickstarted CRPG Pillars of Eternity, bringing competitive--but clearly very different--gameplay to the world of Eora.
"We are hugely excited to bring Pillars of Eternity to board and card gamers like us" said CEO Feargus Urquhart. "Using Kickstarter to fund the Pillars of Eternity computer game has allowed us not only to deliver an amazing electronic experience, but now let's us expand the Pillars of Eternity universe with new and different games."
"Having been friends and colleagues with the team at Obsidian, partnering with them for this project is natural fit", said Designer Chris Taylor.
