Publishing studio Paradox Interactive has announced that they’re bringing two PC games – Pillars of Eternity and Cities: Skylines – to consoles this summer. Both games will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in August of this year. Paradox cites their dedication to access as their reason for jumping on board to bring these popular titles to more platforms.
Pillars of Eternity is an indie RPG that was given life after a successful crowdfunding campaign. The game was originally developed by Obsidian Entertainment. Since its launch, PoE has won awards for both its rich story and complex world. Inspired by classic RPGs like Baldur’s Gate, the game features tactics-based combat, a nuanced character system, and a high fantasy setting. The Complete Edition includes a few UI updates and some expected tweaks to the controls. Both parts of The White March expansion will be included in this upcoming edition of the game when it releases for both PS4 and Xbox One.
Cities: Skylines is a management simulation game created by Colossal Order. In the game, players are given the freedom to design and maintain their own city. They can construct roads, buildings, and other amenities to keep their city running smoothly. Or, alternatively, players can choose to unleash chaos on the citizens if they so desire. The choice is entirely up to the person with the controls. The PlayStation 4 version of Cities: Skylines will include the After Dark expansion that adds a day-night cycle and new options for building up a city’s nightlife.
Pillars of Eternity: Complete Edition will launch on August 29th for PS4 and Xbox One. Cities: Skylines – PlayStation 4 Edition will be released exclusively for PS4 on August 15th. Fans can check out the announcement trailers for both PoE and Cities: Skylines in the meantime.
