With Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout New Vegas and Pillars of Eternity under its belt, Obsidian adds a lot of RPG power to Microsoft's line-up.

Both studios are beloved by their fans, for different reasons. inXile is perhaps best known for its top-down perspective roleplaying games, such as Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera. "Obsidian and inXile embody all of these qualities while also bringing expertise on the PC platform and a unique RPG focus to the table".

With Microsoft's tech and financing, inXile and Obsidian should be able to find new heights with their respective games, which have recently been funded primarily via Kickstarter.
