Post-Launch DLCs Announced for Pillars of Eternity II Deadfire
Obsidian Entertainment and publisher Versus Evil have announced post-launch DLC plans for Pillars of Eternity II Deadfire, the upcoming sequel to the cRPG released in 2015. There’ll be three of these, all of them included as part of the Pillars of Eternity II Deadfire Obsidian Edition (priced at €70 on Steam, though there’s currently a sale available on Fanatical). FIG backers who pledged at the Collector’s Edition tier or above will also get the Season Pass, which will otherwise be sold separately for €24.99 while the individual DLCs will be sold for €9.99.
Pillars of Eternity II Deadfire launches for PC (Windows, Mac and Linux) on May 8th while console gamers will get the title in late 2018 on all major platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch).
The first downloadable content pack (DLC), ‘Beast Of Winter‘ will be available in July 2018, and will take your party to an island populated by a mysterious doomsday cult, that hides an ancient secret. Players will get to experience adventuring in ‘The Beyond,’ a mysterious dimension populated by ancient souls and filled with devilish challenges.
The second DLC ‘Seeker, Slayer, Survivor’ available in September 2018, is a combat-focused expansion taking place on a previously undiscovered island that will challenge the martial prowess of your party, and your tactical skills as a commander, as you embark on a mission to rediscover ancient relics, and pit your party against Eora’s most skilled and savage.
The third DLC, ‘The Forgotten Sanctum’ available in November 2018, will test your party’s allegiance and morality in a quest to help (or obstruct) the great wizards of Eora. Will you befriend, betray or befuddle these venerable mystics as you uncover secrets lost to the generations? The consequences of your actions will be felt across the Deadfire Archipelago whatever you decide.
