Pillars of Eternity is getting a giant expansion


Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian’s crowdfunded isometric RPG and one of the seven thousand spiritual successors to Baldur’s Gate and its ilk, is now within sniffing distance of its March 26th launch date.

During a Q&A on Reddit, Obsidian revealed that they’ve already started work on an expansion. It’s a big one, encompassing a chunk of world about the size of Baldur’s Gate expansion Tales of the Sword Coast.

“We are looking at doing an expansion that’s about the same size (area wise) of Tales of the Sword Coast,” said Obsidian’s Adam Brennecke.

“I won’t reveal much about it since it’s early in development, but we’ve already have a small team working on areas and environments while the rest of the team focus on shipping the game. We will announcing more things about it over the next few months.”

Obsidian had previously stated in an interview with Polygon that they’re planning on starting development on Pillars of Eternity 2, a sequel that would introduce some “new systems”.
