Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire official artwork and logo

If you were hoping to get your hands on Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire this April 3rd, I'm afraid I have some bad news. In order to ensure that they have enough time to polish up all of the content and fix any bugs that might pop up, the developers have recently announced that Pillars of Eternity 2 has been delayed until May 8th. The console versions are still set to arrive at some point towards the end of 2018, though no release date has been given for them just yet.

While I can't do much to help that extra month pass by quickly, I can share with you the recently posted gameplay trailer. It features player-controlled ships, exploration on both land and sea, a variety of battles against all sorts of enemies, as well as a gigantic dragon! So if you're up for a bit of a sneak peek at what Pillars of Eternity 2 will have to offer, you'll find the video right below:

It's not the most revealing of trailers, but I have to admit that my curiosity is piqued. I'm a massive sucker for games that focus on exploration and storytelling in equal measure, so Pillars of Eternity 2's premise of having you hunt down a god by exploring a gigantic ocean is quite the exciting one. I am especially looking forward to seeing what that dragon is all about, and perhaps more importantly, what sort of cloak I'll be able to make from it's hide!

My overly-ambitious plans aside, if you're interested in learning more about Pillars of Eternity 2 you should head on over to the official website
