Obsidian have revealed the roadmap for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire’s DLC. Three expansions are currently slated to release in the game’s wake, running into November of this year. Here’s the current plan.

Any burning questions? Consider them answered: here’s everything we know about Pillars of Eternity 2.

  • Beast Of Winterlaunches in July, and takes you to an island inhabited by a mysterious doomsday cult who are hiding an ancient secret. You’ll also get to explore The Beyond, a mysterious dimension populated by ancient souls and devilish challenges.
  • Seeker, Slayer, Survivordrops in September, and is a combat-focused expansion set on an undiscovered island. Your party’s martial prowess will be tested, as will your skills as a commander, in a mission to wrest ancient relics from the grip of Eora’s most skilled and savage.
  • The Forgotten Sanctumwill be available in November 2018, and will test your party’s allegiance and morality in a quest to help (or obstruct) the great wizards of Eora. Will you befriend, betray or befuddle these venerable mystics as you uncover secrets lost to the generations? Your decision will ripple across the Deadfire Archipelago.

All three DLCs are in the Obsidian Edition of Pillars II, which is on sale now for $74.99. If you’re not sold yet, a season pass with all three packs will be available after the game launches for $24.99. Alternatively, the expansions will be sold individually for $9.99 as they are released. You can review your options on the Steam page here.
