Obsidian Partners with Versus Evil for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire

The Sequel to the Award-Winning RPG Gets a Publisher

In order to deliver the most enjoyable experience to as many players as possible, Obsidian Entertainment, the maker of quality RPGs, announced they are teaming up with Versus Evil for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire.

The first Pillars of Eternity was an RPG like no other, with a story that stood on its feet and a delivery unmatched by other Isometric games. That said, the sequel will build on everything that made the first game great. Expect a more detailed environment, better combat, voiced characters, and even a relationship system.

Pillars of Eternity and Obsidian are practically synonymous with quality RPGs and we couldn’t be happier to work with their team and their community in supporting Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire”, said  Versus Evil General Manager Steve Escalante in a press release. “The sequel builds on the massive critical success of the first game and will be one of the premier RPGs to launch in 2018.  Fans of the franchise will be thrilled with everything that this sequel has to offer, and newcomers to the Pillars universe will get to experience a technically superior RPG adventure with a more meaningful companion system, deep progression mechanics and uniquely rich storyline for the first time.”

What’s more, players will visit a completely new region in Pillars of Eternity 2, allowing exploration of new land and lore. Specifically, players will visit the Deadfire Archipelago in hunting down a god to save their own souls. It will be a dangerous voyage, but that’s why you have your faithful, customizable party.

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire will arrive for PC, Mac, and Linux in early 2018. Considering the heads behind this IP, will you be picking it up come release? Let us know in the comments below.
