Obsidian and Paradox just announced the first expansion for Pillars of Eternity. It’s called The White March: Part 1. It has the new abilities, characters, and high-level content that you’d expect from an RPG expansion.
Paradox boss Fred Wester and Obsidian CEO Feargus Urquhart’s appearance at the PC Gaming Show was a bit of a victory lap for their partnership, as they discussed their experience in the industry and their partnership.
Interestingly, Wester mentioned that Kickstarter itself is something that Paradox contemplate a lot internally, but what he doesn’t like for Paradox, Wester explained, is that, “Your first idea is not necessarily the game that reaches the market X-months later.”
Urquhart took a bow for Pillars and Obsidian when he said, “We said we’re gonna make a successor to the Baldur’s Gates, and I feel we did.”
