Man, what a success. Obsidian launched yesterday a crowd-funding campaign for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and we are happy to report that the game has already been funded, raising $1.1 million in less than 24 hours.
Inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate 2: Shadows of Amn, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire improves upon the rich narrative, beautiful environments, and intricate, tactical combat that made the original a fan and critical sensation.
With Deadfire, Obsidian will take players on a second fantastic journey to the world of Eora, this time to the vast, uncharted, Deadfire Archipelago. where they will fight for their souls as they hunt down a god.
Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire will feature enhanced reactivity, intense and immersive dynamic weather, a new dynamic lighting and shadows engine, revised spells and abilities with new visual effects, as well as tons of scripted interactions, all-new interfaces for inventory and dialog, new creatures, and more.
