Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire Announced

Fig is now hosting a crowdfunding campaign for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, an RPG sequel from Obsidian Entertainment. The campaign is just beginning, but is already well on its way toward its initial funding goal of $1,100,000. Here's a campaign launch trailer with a look, and here's a bit on the plan:
Obsidian Entertainment proudly presents the sequel to our crowdfunded and critically-acclaimed role-playing game, Pillars of Eternity. Welcome to Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. With Pillars II, we are revisiting the rich narrative, beautiful environments, and tactical combat that made Pillars of Eternity one of the highest-rated PC games of all time. Having a development team of over 77,000 people made the first game possible, but your feedback and community support made it amazing! Our team wants to take you on a second journey to Eora. We couldn't be more excited to get all of you involved in Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire.

Explore Deadfire
Voyage by land and sea across the myriad islands of Deadfire to discover new cultures and environments. Help to resolve a multi-layered conflict between the locals, ambitious trading companies, and bands of fierce pirates while following in the footsteps of Eothas.

A Living, Breathing World
The people of Deadfire have lives of their own, jobs to do, and appointments to keep. They will carry on with their affairs even when you're not watching. If you don’t find the street gang in their usual haunt, a street urchin might be persuaded to tell you that at night you’ll find them at their flop house.

New and Returning Companions
While some familiar faces will be returning, Deadfire will also present a fresh crop of travelers with stories of their own. Companions are tightly intertwined with the fate of Eothas and the Deadfire and will change based on the player's choices over the course of the story.

Enhanced Reactivity
Continue the story you began as the Watcher of Caed Nua in Pillars of Eternity, and see how your decisions and actions in the Dyrwood persist in Deadfire.

I'm in for the CE. I love seeing fans get behind a studio for a game they really want. I have enjoyed my time with all of them and I feel I got my money's worth from all but one of them. Even that game I can play for as long as they keep their servers up which should be for decades. I assume anyway. It seems to be getting better each time I pop into the game world to see how things are going.

So I have but that one regret with these crowdfunded games. I funded big that one time. Well if you don't consider CE big. I fund the CE level quite often. I pay extra for the nostalgia of the old days. Getting a huge box with lots of swag is even better. But I will never pledge big big again... that one game which I will not name... is still in beta two and a half years past the estimated release date even though they took in almost twice their goal. I have yet to feel it was worth it. Probably never will. Even though the founder and team has been working on MMOs and RPGs for more than three decades what they have so far is just not captivating enough to buy in at anything other than the lower levels. The only saving grace of my big donation is that because of my funding level I can step away from the game and not have to worry that my lot and all its content will be sent to the local bank account as soon as the taxes are past due. My lot is tax free.
