Did you know Pillars of Eternity, one of our favorite RPGs on Mac just got a sequel?
And did you know that said sequel did even better than the original and raised over $4.4 Million (4 times the initial goal)?
That alone created a lot of hype and high expectations, but it seems Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire will do just fine. In spite of a small delay concerning all platforms, the game is out and it currently sits at the top of the Top Sellers chart on Steam and earned an amazing 90 Metascore.
But the even better news is that Pillars of Eternity 2 for Mac arrived on the day as on Windows: May 8, 2018.
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire picks right where the original game left off. The game revisits the rich narrative, beautiful environments, and tactical combat that made the first game one of the highest-rated RPGs of all time.
Developer Obsidian promises:
A vast open world explorable by the player’s own customizable ship, character customization with enough options to make any RPG player want to make a hundred characters, and an exciting narrative that truly delivers on the reactivity that makes our games special.
And given how good the original Pillars of Eternity was, I’m not surprised they released something special again.
Pillars of Eternity 2 on Mac: Everything you need to know
The last time we talked to Obsidian, they had the conviction that multiplatform development was important and they were confident they would continue to support the MacOS platform in the future. After testing the game on 4 different machines for our Mac review, I can confirm they did a great job with PoE2’s MacOS version.
These are the game’s minimum system requirements:
- OS: OS X 10.12.6 Sierra 64-bit or newer
- Processor: 2.9 GHz Intel Core i5
- Memory: 8 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT750M
- Storage: 45 GB available space
The first Pillars of Eternity wasn’t particularly demanding and I can now confirm PoE2 is forgiving and can even run on older MacBooks.
