That’s right, Obsidian has announced the sequel to ever so popular (and ruddy brilliant) Pillars of Eternity. Much like the predecessor, Obsidian have decided to have the sequel crowd-funded. This time they have dropped using Kickstarter in favour of crowd-funding site; Fig.
“For the sequel, we have turned to Fig for our fan funding needs because we not only wanted our fans to help shape Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, but to financially share in its potential as well,” said Obsidian boss Feargus Urquhart.
POE 2 picks up where the first game left off, taking players on a second journey into the world of Euro. Obsidian have released the official blurb for the upcoming title:
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 destroys your stronghold and leaves 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.
Obsidian are promising new companions, a story that changes based upon players’ decisions, and the ability to continue the story of your character from the first title.
According to the Fig campaign page, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire will be released on PC in 2018. Check out the campaign page here.
