Confirmed earlier in the day, Obsidian Entertainment’s crowd-funding campaign for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is now officially live on Fig. The funding goal is set at $1.1 million though backers can also purchase $2.25 million in equity.
Here’s something crazy to note though: Despite only being live for a few hours, the campaign has already garnered $271,838 which is 24 percent of its funding goal. Given how well the first title was received, it only makes sense that fans would be gung-ho for the sequel.
Among the many features promised – including transferring your saved game to the sequel to see how your decisions impact the new location – players will also encounter “truly living cities” and “more freedom to explore the open world.”
Check out the campaign launch trailer below. Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is currently in development for PC, Mac OS X and Linux. What are your thoughts on the features list thus far? Let us know in the comments below.
