Pillars of Eternity Expansion This Month

Paradox announces August 25th is the release date for The White March - Part I, the upcoming expansion for Pillars of Eternity, Obsidian's role-playing game. Here's the news:
Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive announced today that “The White March – Part I,” the first expansion to Pillars of Eternity, will be released on August 25, 2015. “The White March – Part I,” revealed during E3 2015, adds a tremendous amount of new content to the Pillars of Eternity universe, and can be played alongside the original game whether players have completed the core game or not. The expansion offers a higher level cap, artifacts, new companions, new abilities, and a new realm to explore along with an expertly crafted story from Carrie Patel, author of the Recoletta series and writer on the original Pillars of Eternity, and Eric Fenstermaker, lead writer on Pillars of Eternity and one of the co-writers of South Park: The Stick of Truth alongside show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Take a peek at what waits in The White March - Part I with the reveal trailer:

Pillars of Eternity is a role-playing game (RPG) inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, backed by over 70,000 fans and released to critical acclaim in March, 2015. Featuring an original world and game system that evokes and improves upon the traditional computer RPG experience, Pillars of Eternity now ventures into new parts of Eora in its first expansion, “The White March – Part I,” including a selection of snow themed environments inspired by Icewind Dale. The White March - Part I offers new features for first-time players and veterans alike, including new rogue and monk companions, a party-based AI system, multi-class abilities, and many new challenges to conquer.

Wow, I'm sad to hear so many people didn't really like PoEt(!), but it has gotten a lot better with the later patches. At this point though, you might as well wait for the next patch, which is pretty major, and this first expansion.

Waiting for the second expansion? Overkill.


Also, Gog/Obsidian really need to condense their current patches on Gog, there are like 7-8 separate patches already.

I backed it and played it quite a bit, but I got kind of bored and didn't finish. At this point I'm going to wait for the 2nd expansion and see if they do a major tweak/rebalance patch before I touch it again.

You me, and everyone else.

I still need to finish the original story. Just really have no desire to go back into it, for some reason.

Nice. I just started PoE - made a Monk character who only uses his fists. Good times so far (punching bandits).

Hopefully I'll be done with Witcher 3 by then, its all encompassing. The AI system should help people who got upset at the games difficulty and didn't discover the plethora of pause related options. Didn't expect this so soon but hey whatever. It lands on the same day as Until Dawn though
Playing: Risk of Rain 2, Jedi Fallen Order, Last of Us II
Watching: Tenet, Peninsula, The Pale Door

Although POE was a bit of a disappointment, this is something I'll probably buy. Not a lot of good gaming options out there right now.
