Obsidian's Kickstarted spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate boasts a great deal of complexity and depth, with a strong emphasis on player choice. At least that's what I've gleaned from the first 300 seconds of the game.
Behold the pulsating adventure of its Steam page description:
Prepare to be enchanted by a world where the choices you make and the paths you choose shape your destiny. Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth, together with Paradox Interactive is proud to present Pillars of Eternity.
Recapture the deep sense of exploration, the joy of a pulsating adventure, and the thrill of leading your own band of companions across a new fantasy realm and into the depths of monster-infested dungeons in search of lost treasures and ancient mysteries.
So gather your party, venture forth, and embrace adventure as you delve into a realm of wonder, nostalgia, and the excitement of classic RPGs with Obsidian's Pillars of Eternity!
But before you do that, create a character. To be honest, I sped through what we did get to see—I easily could have gone 15 minutes in character creation alone.
The First Five is the first five minutes of a game with light commentary. Once the five minutes are up, so are we.
