To feature land and sea movement, dynamic quests and more.
Polygon seemed to have broken the news early on Obsidian Entertainment’s next big game, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. Though the post has been removed, a Reddit post has it archived with concept art and plenty of new details.
The sequel, which directly follows the original, will see its crowd-funding campaign go live on Fig later today. Obsidian is seeking $1.1 million though $2.25 million is available for equity.
The campaign sees players dealing with Eothas, the god of light and rebirth, now possessing a stone titan and leaving your base in ruins. It’s then a matter of tracking down said god and having a civil conversation with him.
Obsidian promises new cultures and levels, NPCs with their own schedules for the potential of dynamic quests and the return of old party members. There will also be land and sea travel, indicated in the above concept art, and it may even be possible to transfer your Pillars of Eternity save files to see how previously made decisions impact the world.
