Pillars of Eternity Kickstarter Update #90: Post-PDXCon Preview Blitz + New Screenshots

Okay, so the new Pillars of Eternity Kickstarter update is actually just about the results of the physical disc poll from last week (the first option won by a large margin), plus some information on the game's Prima strategy guide. But I'd rather tell you about the profusion of Pillars of Eternity previews that appeared across the web today, a week after it was demonstrated at Paradox Interactive's PDXCon conference by Josh Sawyer. Here's a list of them:

The longest and most comprehensive English preview by far is the PCWorld one, which could actually serve as a fine introduction to the game for Infinity Engine fans who haven't followed any news about it. If that's too tl;dr for you, excerpts are available in GameBanshee's round-up post, and in our own Pillars of Eternity thread. But wait, that's not all! Obsidian also released a few new screenshots for this round of publicity:

There'll be more in a couple of weeks, when Pillars of Eternity is exhibited at PAX East. They're certainly going all-out with the publicity for this game. It'll be interesting to see how well it pays off.
