As one of the first crowdfunding success stories (raising over $4.5 million on Kickstarter), Obsidian Entertainment's Pillars of Eternity is finally out today for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Originally pitched as the spiritual successor to classic PC role-playing titles like Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, Pillars of Eternity aims to bring back a style of RPG many had thought was long gone.
“Moments like these feel surreal when they finally arrive,” said Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment. “Today is the culmination of two years’ hard work, but there’s even more to it than the usual game release day. Given where we were when we started on Pillars of Eternity, this is the start of a new chapter in the story of Obsidian. We’ll be forever grateful to all of our fans and backers for making this moment possible, and truly hope that we have lived up to the faith you placed in us.”

So. Many. Crashes.
And for so many different reasons. Even as far as inherent bugs in the Unity Engine they used itself, which makes patching seemingly more complex. I've just reached Defiance Bay, and just can't progress any further. Every 5 minutes, game crashes. I bought the GOG version, but Steam users also reporting same.
I'm giving up for now. Hopefully a patch resolves the issues and I'll have another crack at it.

I got a bug where I'm stuck in Raedric's Hold, if I try and leave a blank screen is loaded. I've tried a few ways out and nothing, bummer.
O well, gives me a reason to roll a 2nd character.

Toll, there's a way to fix that (but also a patch coming).
If you open your save file (inside Users/you/Saved games) with 7zip you can delete the zone you are trying to zone into. This will fully repopulate the zone when you transition into it so be careful of potentially duplicating stuff. I was stuck on the roof of Raedric's Hold with the same problem.
