Pillars of Eternity was an awesome game – I sunk a good deal of time into it personally. I am also a huge fan of strategy card games. So this announcement really caught my eye.
Here is the press release:
Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the Kickstarter funded Pillars of Eternity, announced today they are entering into a partnership with Zero Radius Games to launch the upcoming card game, Pillars of Eternity – Lords of the Eastern Reach.
