Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind Fallout: New Vegas and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II, unveiled its new mysterious RPG over the weekend by posting a Kickstarter page for Project Eternity.
The Kickstarter goal of $1,100,000 was made pretty quickly, and with around a month still to go, Obsidian has added some new goals to the campaign.
It’s the first update from the studio since the announcement, but gives gamers and backers some details on what to expect going forward with the project:
1.1 million, Base Goal – Achieved!
Base game includes three races, five classes, and five companions. We have ideas for these, but we want to hear your opinions on what you’d like to see. Stay tuned to Kickstarter, our website, and our forums to join in on the conversation.
1.4 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
Expands your options for character creation and adds a companion of the new class.
1.6 million, a Mac Version of Project Eternity and The Story Grows!
We’ve listened and we’ll make a Mac version of the game at this tier. We’re also going to add a new major storyline along with new quests, locations, NPCs, and unique loot (special histories everyone?).
1.8 million, New Playable Race, Class, and Companion!
The options grow for your main character and the roster of your motley crew expands with the addition of a new companion from the selected class.
2.0 million, Player House!
Get your own house in the game that you can customize, store equipment in, and where your companions hang out, or, as the elves say, “chillax”.
2.2 million, a new Region, a new Faction and another new Companion! And, dare we say it… ? LINUX!
Great news, everyone! For the Tarball Knights of Gzippia out there, we’ll be adding Linux support!
Also, the world of Project Eternity grows in a major way with the inclusion of a whole new faction and the territory it holds. This adds new NPCs, quests, magic items, and hours of gameplay. And yes, you got it, another companion.
2.4 million and beyond! Coming Soon!
We’ve been listening to your feedback, and have the following announcements:
- DRM Free: We are looking into it! Please check back for updates.
- Digital Only Tiers are coming!
- PayPal is coming asap. Please be patient!
- New $5k Tier. We are looking into a new $5k tier since it sold out so quickly! We are looking into equivalent alternatives.
