Obsidian has announced ‘Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’, sequel to the game released in 2015, and will be funded through crowdfunding platform Fig. He has been revealing on Twitter an image that insinuated the return of one of the best role-playing games of recent years and indeed has been.
Obsidian has made a name in recent times thanks not only to the game that concerns us, but also to others like ‘Tyranny’, ‘Fallout: New Vegas’ or ‘South Park: The Rod of. In fact, the ‘Pillars of Eternity’ itself shows a 89 in Metacritic and was in its moment the game with more collection of the history of Kickstarter. This time they have chosen Fig to finance it, a crowdfunding platform dedicated exclusively to video games.
There is great news for those who play or are playing the first delivery, as it will be possible to transfer the facts of the one in this sequel, which will also repeat the presence of some of the comrades that appeared throughout history. But the virtues already known, such as the narrative or its combat system are added new features such as a dynamic climate, thanks to its setting in the archipelago of Deadfire, which gives name to the game.
The improvements will also be graphical, with a new engine for lighting and shadows that will make some effects and spells more spectacular, as well as an improved interface and new interactions and enemies.
‘Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’ will go ahead, of course, but Obsidian is asking for this extra money to add even more classes for the characters, which in turn will directly affect the future of the plot. Its launch in PC is not yet concrete, but it would be expected for 2018.
