Finish The Fight: The Pillars of the Earth - The Trilogy is out today!

View the video here.

Quote:
All three chapters of Ken Follett’s best sellers come together in one interactive novel
Thursday, March 29, 2018 — Having already released two chapters capturing the spirit of Ken Follett’s bestseller, today sees Daedalic sign off with the third and final part of The Pillars of the Earth, bringing the trilogy together in one neat package for the first time.

The Pillars of the Earth: Eye of the Storm signs off the entire adventure, bringing the epic conclusion to Follett’s legendary book to life. Players who already own the first two chapters from Daedalic on Steam - From The Ashes and Sowing The Wind - will automatically unlock the third and final chapter, with play seamlessly moving from one to the other upon completion.

Altogether, The Pillars of the Earth trilogy adapts classic adventure mechanics to tell the tale of the fictional English town of Kingsbridge in the 12th century. Players take on the roles of Jack, Aliena and Philip, with their decision making having a direct impact on the events of the book. The story focuses on the town’s efforts to build a cathedral to secure wealth and security.


Happy Gaming!

What do you mean by "pack" Mad? The season pass is available on GOG at $14.99 right now.

I thought part 3 wasn't being released until May too, but it showed up on GOG today.

Mad, The Pillars of the Earth is just one game in 3 episodes. Like oldbroad said, you can get the entire game right now, as its final episode was released today. thumbsup

For anyone with the GOG version, it does not appear as if the game has been updated yet. I thought something was strange when I didn't get the update notification symbol, but as the version number looked current, I thought it would be fine. However, it still looks as though Book 3 has not been added, as I can only load previous saved games from Books 1 and 2. Once again, it looks as though GOG users still have to wait. sad

I'm hoping this isn't a Galaxy only thing, as I don't want to be forced into downloading it there. Does anyone happen to know if the DRM free files can be downloaded through Galaxy? If so, I may give it a try to see if the correct update exists there.

EDIT: When I check "Changelog," is shows a March 29th update that mentions Book 3 has been added. Yet, as I've mentioned, I never got the notification symbol that anything was changed. This whole thing is very strange. I wonder if something is wrong with their files. I've tried downloading the new files several times.

I don't think I ever saw just the one episode available by itself Mad. Not that ME not seeing it means anything. I often miss stuff. Where did you buy it? Are you going to get the GOG season pass now or get 2 and 3 from wherever you got 1? Maybe you did purchase the full game?

Oh, dear, oldbroad .... I MUST apologise .... Definitely had a "senior moment" there !! shocked

I got totally mixed up. The game I was talking about is "Pillars of Eternity".

[ And I was thinking how strange that it should even be a topic on the Adventure Board duh]

Think I need more wine in my glass !! lol

Okay, I haven't seen any comments regarding this, but in case anyone is having trouble as I was with the GOG version, I've found the solution. The link provided for the GOG downloader version does not work, at least it didn't for me. Whenever I tried to load any of my saved games, they were listed as invalid. When I checked the menu, it looked like Books 2 and 3 were not there, so I tried downloading the DLC for those books and installing that. When I did this, my saved games would load, but the characters had completely disappeared.

So, it appears what you have to do is download each small file individually (if you want the version without the Galaxy addons, go to More, and select Classic Installers), including the DLC Download for Books 2 and 3. This is much more frustrating and time consuming, but it's the only way I was able to get it to work. Afterward, first install the game itself, and then, make sure to install the DLC, so Books 2 and 3 will be added as well.

After doing this, my saved games were able to load with characters intact. I spent all day on this, so I'm glad I at least got something out of it for my trouble. lol Hope this helps if anyone else runs into the same problem I did.

Thanks for taking the time to post this, venus. I looked into this for you on GOG today but I didn't see any posts about it. Glad you got it figured out. smile

You're welcome, Marian, and thanks for checking for me! wave Hope it helps anyone else who may have had the same issue. I'm guessing that most people on the GOG forums use Galaxy and therefore don't have that problem, though I could be wrong, of course. I haven't tried Galaxy yet, as I'm not sure that it's DRM free.

Galaxy is DRM free, too. I was reluctant to use it at first, but now I can't live without it. For starters, unlike the GOG downloader, it downloads the entire game at once, which is so much better and easier.

Could some kind person please tell me what the acronyms DLC (and OST) represent?
I've never been able to work it out. I note that Venus mentions DLC.

Many thanks, barnarosso

DLC = downloadable content
OST = original/official soundtrack
