Classic gaming revisited by Obsidian
The first gameplay trailer for developer Obsidian Entertainment’s “Pillars of Eternity” was released this week.
The game, which was funded through a Kickstarter campaign, is a old-school role-playing game that aims to recapture the feeling of tabletop games like “Dungeons and Dragons” as well as classic games like “Baldur’s Gate.”
Pledges of $35 are still being accepted over at the game’s official site, and it is expected to be released for PC and Mac in winter 2014.
EA under investigation
Electronic Arts is currently being investigated by Atlana-based law firm Holzer Holzer and Fistel. The investigation is focused on the company’s compliance with federal securities laws regarding the production and sale of “Battlefield 4,” according to a post on Business Wire.
The firm is looking to find out whether EA made false claims about the game’s status during development.
Since release, “Battlefield 4” players have been plagues with numerous bugs and glitches, and the game’s servers suffered a DDoS attack on Nov. 18 resulting in players being unable to join online games for a short time.
All work on expansions to the game has ceased until the issues with the game’s stability have been addressed properly, EA said in a statement last week.
