How to get Pillars of Eternity & Tyranny FOR FREE
It’s Thursday and that means EarlyGame is telling you how to get some sweet games for free. This is a big one: RPG fans rejoice – Pillars of Eternity and Tyranny, two modern-day classics, are free this week only!
Wow, here come the big guns! Two amazing titles by Obsidian Entertainment are up for grabs on the Epic Games store. Did you grow up on classic RPGs like Baldur’s Gate? Then these are for you! Have you never tried an isometric party-based game in your life? Then these are also for you! Perhaps you’ve picked up tabletop Dungeons & Dragons during quarantine and got into the whole RPG thing… You get the point, these games are great.
Pillars of Eternity
This game is so great it’s credited for single-handedly reviving a dying genre. A massive Kickstarter success back in 2012 lead to the official launch in 2015 and huge critical & fan praise. A true spiritual successor to classic RPG games like Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale and, to an extent, Planescape Torment and Neverwinter Nights. This title will entangle you in a fascinating story, rich world, and memorable characters. You’ll manage your party, equip them with sweet gear, and complete epic quests.
One of the games that directly benefited from Pillars of Eternity’s success and the new life force flowing in the CRPG movement is Tyranny – made by the same team. This one flips the formula on its head - we are used to heroes saving the world and taking down the one-dimensional, mustache-twirling villain – but what if there’s more to that? Well, it’s time we find out because in this game, you are the bad guy! You took over the world with your mighty fist - now rule it! Duh! Did we mention this is also the gold edition?
