Pillars Of Eternity Backer Beta Begins, Mac Beta Later
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Obsidian Entertainment has announced beta access is available now for some Kickstarter backers of the Pillars of Eternity fantasy RPG. Currently only open to Windows users through Steam, Obsidian promised Mac and Linux participants will get their own beta in the coming weeks. Inspired by classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate, and featuring the isometric view point and turn-based-with-pause combat system made popular by such titles, Pillars of Eternity will give players the chance to enjoy a high fantasy setting populated with interesting characters and challenges to overcome.

The Backer Beta is initially being released only through Steam and only for the Windows platform. We are working hard on bringing Mac and Linux to you guys in the next few weeks. Note that if you are concerned about linking the Backer Beta to the final product, you need not worry -- the Backer Beta is considered a separate product. If you want to participate in the Backer Beta, your final product will not be locked into Steam or Windows.

The content of the Backer Beta encapsulates the village of Dyrford and surrounding wilderness and dungeon environments. You will begin by choosing basic difficulty settings (Easy, Normal, Hard, or Path of the Damned), optional modes (Expert and Trial or Iron), and building your character. In the Backer Beta, you have access to all character races and subraces, all classes, and all starting cultures and backgrounds.
