General Information

Available on:PCMay 8, 2018

Developer: Obsidian Entertainment

Publisher: Versus Evil

Genre: RPG

Chase a rogue god over land and sea in this sequel to the multi-award-winning RPG, Pillars of Eternity. Captain your own ship on a dangerous voyage of discovery across the vast Deadfire Archipelago. Delve deeply into the story you create through the new character customization system, meaningful companion relationships, freedom of exploration, and a world that reacts to the complex, moral choices you'll have to make. FEATURES: Discover exotic new cultures and environments as you plot your own course through the Deadfire region in your own upgradeable ship. Choose from 7 unique new, and returning, companions to accompany you. Watch how they react to each other through the all-new companion relationship system - or, instead, create your own custom party members from scratch. Play your way: create a truly custom alter ego with the new multiclass and subclass systems. Witness a living breathing world built on hand-painted backgrounds integrated seamlessly with 3D models, dynamic weather and lighting, and stunning visual effects. Captain your crew and upgrade your ship wisely to repel boarders, survive canon fire, and keep a potentially mutinous crew in-line. Import your Watcher and choices from the first Pillars, or create a new backstory for your character with an easy, built-in system to decide these choices.

Layers of rum-and-sunshine soaked RPG adventuring to lose yourself in. Does it really matter it doesn't quite tie together in the end?

Another unapologetically old school role-player that gives its audience exactly what it wants and adds some fun pirate-themed exploration for everyone.
