THQ Nordic is working tirelessly with Versus Evil and Obsidian Entertainment to bring out a sequel to Pillars of Eternity. Aptly named, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, which is currently in development for PC, Mac and Linux, will server to bring an even richer RPG experience than ever before. Partnering with THQ Nordic gave the developers an opportunity to release a solid physical product that matched the quality of the RPG itself. THQ Nordic will also be responsible for the distribution of the game, which is planned for global launch, excluding the Korean language version of the game.
The player will embark on a new journey to hunt down a god to save their own souls. Taking the already successful formula from the first Pillars of Eternity, everything has been expanded and improved upon. The graphics have been overhauled, combat has been streamlined, a new companion relationship system has been implemented, deeper mechanics are introduced and so much more is being added. Players will pilot their own ships across the archipelago in the region of Deadfire, fighting off enemies and discovering vast new locations. Players have a freedom like never before all while discovering quests from each port. Build your party from seven different companions, each with their own classes and abilities to unlock. There is no solid release date for Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, but you better be sure when it launches it is going to redefine the RPG genre!
