A fan-funding campaign for a follow-up to 2015’s Pillars of Eternity, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, is now live.
Obsidian Entertainment, the developer behind Fallout: New Vegas, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the original Pillars of Eternity, launched the campaign on Fig. The campaign has an overall goal of $1.1 million USD.
According to Obsidian, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire “improves upon the rich narrative, beautiful environments, and intricate, tactical combat” that helped make the first game a success.
The sequel sees players return to the world of Eora, this time to explore the Deadfire Archipelago. Traveling “by land and sea,” players move from island to island, exploring the environments and smoothing out relations between the locals, “trading companies, and bands of fierce pirates.”
