Obsidian Announces Pillars of Eternity 2; Launches Crowdfunding Campaign on Fig

Obsidian Entertainment announced that a sequel to the hit classic RPG Pillars of Eternity will be receiving a direct sequel. Being titled as Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, the game will let players pick up exactly where they left off from the original, however, the game will have some new surprises in store.

Watch the campaign trailer down below:

Here’s a brief synopsis of what to expect in Pillars of Eternity 2:

Eothas has returned. The god of light and rebirth was thought dead, but he now inhabits the stone titan that sat buried under your keep, Caed Nua, for millennia. Ripping his way out of the ground, he destroyed your stronghold and left you at the brink of death. To save your soul, you must track down the wayward god and demand answers – answers which could throw mortals and the gods themselves into chaos.

Your hunt takes you to the Deadfire Archipelago. Located even farther east than the colonies of the Eastern Reach, Deadfire comprises hundreds of islands spanning thousands of miles – ranging from lush tropics to barren deserts. Many of these lands have never been charted, while others are inhabited by rich native cultures and a new wave of colonial settlers.

The game will be crowd funded through Fig; the necessary money amount needed to complete development will cost 1.1 million dollars. As of writing, the campaign sits at $520,509 with 29 days left to go.
