The launch of the last DLC will coincide with update 4.0, which adds two new Mega Bosses.
Obsidian Entertainment may have been acquired by Microsoft, but it’s still wrapping up unfinished business as it surges forward with its last paid DLC for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. The Forgotten Sanctum is out on December 13th and will deliver a new story with some new quests. The DLC will cost $9.99 standalone and comes with the game’s Season Pass.
The story this time focuses on the Archmages of Eora as they ask the Watcher (aka you) for help. It turns out another Archmage has set some pretty bad stuff into motion and it’s your job to fix it. There will be a large new dungeon that’s inside of a sleeping deity to explore. Players can expect high level challenges and the chance to either “scheme with or defy the wills of Eora’s most powerful wizards”.
Along with the DLC, Obsidian will also release patch 4.0. This will add some new features, new Challenges, and two new Mega Bosses to fight. Considering the free support that Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire has already received, it’s good to see new content still being added. Will The Forgotten Sanctum send the game off with a bang? We’ll have to wait until December to find out.
