Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire official artwork

After going through a highly successful Fig crowdfunding campaign and a refreshingly smooth development process, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire has now finally made its way to PC. Besides continuing on with the original's storyline, Pillars of Eternity 2 features player-controlled ships that you can use to explore a gigantic world, plenty of uncharted islands with treasure to loot and danger to overcome, a whole bunch of new enemies to battle against, and perhaps most importantly, a variety of interesting companions to chat up.

If you're interested in a sneak peak of what all of this might look like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. It won't exactly tell you what Pillars of Eternity 2 is all about, but it will at least help you get into the right mood. Have a look:

I'll have a full review once I finally finish the campaign, but so far I have to agree with the general consensus and say that I'm quite pleased with what Pillars of Eternity 2 has to offer. Besides the ship combat which I find to be beyond dreadful, it is a marked improvement over the original and thoroughly enjoyable RPG in its own right. So if you're a fan of the original Pillars of Eternity, or isometric RPGs in general, I think it's safe to say you'll like Pillars of Eternity 2 as well.

If you would like to give Pillars of Eternity 2 a try, or just learn a little bit more about it, you should head on over to either the official website or Steam. Enjoy!
