We haven’t long to go now before Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire releases on May 8th and some new details have been released about its DLC. Obsidian have revealed their plans for extra content to be released after the main game.
So far there are three expansions planned, which will release between July and November.
- Beast Of Winter launches in July, and takes you to an island inhabited by a mysterious doomsday cult who are hiding an ancient secret. You’ll also get to explore The Beyond, a mysterious dimension populated by ancient souls and devilish challenges.
- Seeker, Slayer, Survivor drops in September, and is a combat-focused expansion set on an undiscovered island. Your party’s martial prowess will be tested, as will your skills as a commander, in a mission to wrest ancient relics from the grip of Eora’s most skilled and savage.
- The Forgotten Sanctum will be available in November 2018, and 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? Your decision will ripple across the Deadfire Archipelago.
Each piece of DLC will be released on its own for $9.99 but there will also be a season pass for $24.99 which will unlock all of them. Alternatively you could pre-order Obsidian Edition of Pillars 2 and get all the DLC and some extras for $74.99. Check out the Steam page for more details.
