Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire official artwork and logo

After the extremely well-received Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian returned to crowdfunding in late January of last year in order to secure funds for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The fans loved the idea so much they not only contributed enough to reach the initial goal, but kept going until the Fig campaign ended with Pillars of Eternity 2 securing $4,407,598 in funding - 400% of the original target!

A fair bit of time has passed since then, and I am now delighted to say that Pillars of Eternity 2 is just about ready to launch! To be more specific, it will be coming to Windows, Linux and Mac on April 3rd. As for the console versions, not details have been given just yet, but you can expect Pillars of Eternity 2 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch at some point towards the end of 2018.

In gameplay terms Pillars of Eternity 2 is going to build upon the foundations of the original with an even deeper story, better visuals, more interesting combat mechanics and items, as well as a 7 new and wildly different companions to travel with. Speaking of which, Pillars of Eternity 2 will also feature some open-world elements in the sense that you can sail around with your very own ship and scour the wast seas for treasures and mysteries. Oh, and there will also be sea monsters, so good luck!

You can learn more about Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire by visiting either the official website or Steam. And as a final note, allow me to send you off with the latest gameplay trailer, just to give you a better idea of what to expect. Enjoy!
