Pillars of Eternity 3: A Jumping, Flying, and Dynamically-Dynamic Adventure!

"As a game developer, I can't help but analyze games and break down what makes them tick," Sawyer begins, a mischievous twinkle in his eye. "Baldur's Gate 3 has achieved remarkable success through excellent execution." He believes that many of the elements in Baldur's Gate 3 have been seen before in other games, but Larian has mastered the art of bringing them to life in their RPG.

Sawyer's first desire is to incorporate the fluidity of movement from Baldur's Gate 3 into the world of Pillars of Eternity. He envisions a game where characters can do more than just walk around, but jump and fly as well. Imagine the possibilities! Soaring through the sky, gracefully leaping over obstacles, and maneuvering through the terrain with finesse. It's not only about the feeling of freedom; it's about the expanded options for problem-solving and dealing with different situations. And let's not forget the astonishing speedruns where players practically jump their way through the entire game. Who wouldn't want to experience that?

But it's not just the movement that Sawyer admires in Baldur's Gate 3. He's also enamored with the dynamic nature of the world. The game is a living, breathing entity, with properties like wetness and burnability affecting gameplay. Objects can be picked up, moved around, or even broken. It's a feast for the senses, and Sawyer can't help but salivate at the thought of incorporating this level of dynamism into Pillars of Eternity 3. Imagine the joy of setting a room ablaze, watching the flames dance and spread, or using your newfound strength to hurl objects at enemies. The possibilities are boundless, and the potential for chaos is irresistible!

Sawyer acknowledges that Larian's mastery of these elements in Baldur's Gate 3 comes from their experience with previous games like Divinity: Original Sin and its sequel. They have honed their skills over time, perfecting the art of creating a vibrant and interactive world. It's not something that can be easily replicated by a new team of developers. But, oh, the potential for greatness if Obsidian were to take up the mantle and weave their own magic into the Pillars of Eternity universe!

Of course, Sawyer has expressed his desire to create Pillars of Eternity 3 before, but there's a catch. It will take a budget the size of Baldur's Gate 3 to convince him to embark on such a grand adventure. But fear not, fellow adventurers! If you're craving more Pillars of Eternity goodness, Obsidian has a remedy for you: Avowed. Set in the same world as Pillars of Eternity, this upcoming game brings spells and other familiar elements from the beloved CRPG series into a fresh and exciting experience. It's the perfect bridge to satisfy your hunger for more epic tales from the Pillars of Eternity universe.

So, my dear readers, prepare yourselves for a potential future where Pillars of Eternity 3 takes flight, where heroes can jump, fly, and navigate a world of unparalleled dynamism. It may require a budget of epic proportions, but with Obsidian's wit and ingenuity, there's no doubt that they could create a masterpiece worthy of the Pillars of Eternity legacy. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for Avowed and all the other exclusive games coming to Xbox Series X this year. Adventure awaits!
