Obsidian Entertainment has announced that Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will release on Nintendo Switch, with Brazilian developer Red Cerberus working on the port to consoles.
The game’s narrative centres on the god Eothas, who, once thought to have been destroyed, has returned to life as a titanic statue. As the Watcher of Caed Nua, it is down to you to discover his true purpose, and decided whether to help or hinder his efforts.
It was Game Informer that first reported the news, which will see the Unity-powered game’s enormous open world, massive cast of characters, and hand-painted backgrounds make their way to everyone’s favourite portable home console.
The Deadfire is a chain of islands that are home to a huge city, fiery volcanoes, mighty pirates, and desolate sandbars. The player will navigate them onboard their trusty ship, the Defiant, which acts as their home base, where they can perform upgrades, hire new crew members, and even take it into combat thanks to a dedicated ship-to-ship combat system.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Holiday 2018.
