There are three different pieces of DLC planned for the amazing CRPG Pillars of Eternity 2. The DLC will launch from July through to November 2018, and will cover three separate mini-stories. Pillars of Eternity 2 is certainly setting the bar high for games that follow. It’s building on the smash-hit of the first game and it looks to be doing quite well in terms of delivering a quality experience. If anything, these DLC will continue that trend of excellence, or at least that’s what I hope.
These quests run the gamut from hunting powerful beasts and treasure in newly discovered lands, to taking on an entire cult bent on destroying the world. And as one would expect, there’s plenty of new locales, quests, monsters and loot in these DLC packs.
Here’s the official blurb to summarize:
“The first downloadable-content pack (DLC), ‘Beast Of Winter’ will be available in July 2018, and will take your party to an island populated by a mysterious doomsday cult, that hides an ancient secret. Players will get to experience adventuring in ‘The Beyond,’ a mysterious dimension populated by ancient souls and filled with devilish challenges.
“The second DLC ‘Seeker, Slayer, Survivor’ available in September 2018, is a combat-focused expansion taking place on a previously undiscovered island that will challenge the martial prowess of your party, and your tactical skills as a commander, as you embark on a mission to rediscover ancient relics, and pit your party against Eora’s most skilled and savage.
“The third DLC, ‘The Forgotten Sanctum’ available in November 2018, 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? The consequences of your actions will be felt across the Deadfire Archipelago whatever you decide.”
Those will cost $10 each or $25 for a season pass which includes all three, each one to be delivered when they launch.
Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire is due to hit Windows, Mac, and Linux on May 8th. It’ll cost £33/€46/$50 on Steam and GOG. There’s also a version that includes all the DLC as well.
