Paradox Interactive, makers of grand strategy games (Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings) and Magicka, are teaming up with Obsidian (South Park: The Stick of Truth, Fallout: New Vegas) for their new RPG, Pillars of Eternity.

On the heels of its fastest selling game (Europa Universalis IV), Paradox is building two new studios, as well as turning up its publishing efforts with partnerships like the Obsidian one. "We make games that we want to play," Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester explained. "It's both how we scout games and how we make games."

Wester said they're hoping for a long relationship with Obsidian and stresses that Obsidian is going to be in full creative control of the game, which remains their IP.

Obsidian also released a comprehensive FAQ on its forum for its Kickstarter backers. "Simply put, Paradox is assuming responsibility for the marketing and distribution of Pillars of Eternity. What this means is that Obsidian can now devote all of their time and resources to the development of Pillars of Eternity and make the game the best it can be."

"We like when developers try to go crazy with things," Wester said during the announcement. "When I played South Park: The Stick of Truth, I laughed at a game for the first time in 20 years, probably since Monkey Island." The partnership makes a lot of sense and could yield great things with future Obsidian projects.
