In a recent announcement, Obsidian, the developers of Pillars Of Eternity II, stated that, nine months after the game launched, it would receive a turn-based mode on January 24th. Before, Pillars Of Eternity II default mode of battle was real-time but with an option that allows players to pause and give commands.
Now, the new turn-based mode that will reach Pillars of Eternity II tomorrow, January 24th, would change the things significantly.
“The turn-based mode slows everything down. It’s a very, very tactical mode of play. It highlights some abilities and debuffs and things like that which aren’t necessarily as highlighted in the real-time with the pause combat system. And it’s really a lot of fun,” said the game director Josh Sawyer.
Pillars Of Eternity II rolled out in May 2018 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, macOS, and Linux. It received high rates, scoring 9 out of 10 on Steam and 88% on Metacritic.
