Fight an evil, Lovecraftian cult, plunder an island fool of booty and play morality games with people having no sense of right and wrong (Wizards of course).

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, Pillars of Eternity 2 DLC


The course is charted for Pillars of Eternity 2 it seems, as the 3 pieces of DLC we can expect have all been announced. They will be arriving very soon- in July, September and November respectively this year.

In the first one called “Beast of Winter“, players will investigate a mysterious doomsday cult and explore another dimension of lost souls. Which sounds awfully Lovecraftian, which I definitely like. I hope for a whole lot of tentacles and visions of mad gods.

Second one, “Seeker, Slayer, Survivor” seems to be a very straight-forward cluster of combat arenas with loot at the end. Not necessarily my cup of coffee, but a lot of you will probably enjoy that.

Finally, the last one, “Forgotten Sanctum” is a lovely ride of philosophical pondering and moral dilemmas concerning the wizards of Eora AKA: people who absolutely should not be making earth-changing moral decisions, so it’s good that you’re there to give them a perspective of someone who doesn’t wield phenomenal cosmic power.

The line-up is varied and interesting, expanding on the content of the game without feeling like a necessity. Each piece of the DLCs will be purchasable separately or acquirable in a season pass. Even though I have a hard time getting into isometric, turn-based RPGs (ok it’s not exactly a turn-based but it essentially is), arguing philosophy with wizards has me hooked.
