Pillars of Eternity II DLC arrives this August

Are you ready to return to the world of Deadfire?

Obsidian Entertainment, creators behind the multi-award winning RPG Pillars of Eternity and it’s sequel, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, have revealed the release date for the first major DLC expansion pack, titled “Beast of Winter”, for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. Players will be able to enjoy the expansion pack on August 2nd, 2018. Alongside the Beast of Winter DLC, Obsidian is also releasing the next major update to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire with their 2.0 patch that will be free to everyone and is set to include a host of bug fixes and balance improvements. Launching alongside both Beast of Winters and the 2.0 update is also the free DLC known as the “Deck of Many Things” pack.

Update 2.0 brings new challenge modes to Deadfire. These challenges will test player’s mettle in unique and interesting ways to play through the game. The “Dead of Many Things” pack however, is the largest free DLC to be released yet and has the mysterious merchant ship, The Deck of Many Things, arriving in the Deadfire looking to sell magical items its crew found on its journeys to the east.

The Beast of Winters is the first out of the three DLC’s included in the Season Pass, with the second DLC being Seeker, Slayer, Survivor and the third entry being The Forgotten Sanctum. All of the paid DLC’s will of course be available to purchase separately but at time of writing, have no confirmed price individually.
