Wasteland 2 Free with Pillars of Eternity II Preorders

GOG.com announces they are giving away a free copy of Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut Digital Classic Edition to everyone who preorders Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. This comes following the announcement they are handing out a free copy of Shadowrun Returns with preorders of BATTLETECH. Word is both offers are retroactive for those who have already preordered, and transferrable for those who already own the bonus games:
As the chinese proverb goes: good things come in pairs. We're here to talk about free video games bundled with upcoming releases on GOG.com – the digital game store where good games come in pairs!

BATTLETECH and Pillars of Eternity II are heading to GOG.com, DRM-free on day one – and for a limited time all pre-orders come with a free game you can play right away:

Pre-order Pillars of Eternity II and get Wasteland 2 Director’s Cut Digital Classic Edition for free – two modern RPGs in one package of a combined bajillion gameplay hours, several novels worth of witty storytelling, and a bucketload of nostalgia for classic-style RPGs. Pillars of Eternity II is slated for release on May 8, 2018.

Pre-order BATTLETECH and get Shadowrun Returns for free – preface the upcoming tactical mech title with the beloved, cyberpunk, strategy-infused RPG from Harebrained Schemes. BATTLETECH comes out on April 24, so you'll be quite ready for more badassery. Supersized mech badassery.

Fine print and useful info:
The BATTLETECH offer will be available with all pre-orders and purchases until May 8, two weeks following the game's premiere.
The Pillars of Eternity II offer will be available with all pre-orders and purchases until May 15, one week following the game's premiere.
Both offers apply retroactively to existing pre-orders, eligible customers who already own Shadowrun Returns or Wasteland 2 on GOG.com can reach out to support.gog.com to receive a giftable copy.

HBS and Obsidian are probably going to do pretty well with their respective titles. For HBS in particular, it is their biggest game to date.

It earned one, for sure, but it did take it a while.

It's just Cutter. He's been whining about PoEt since before it was released.

No talking bad about Wasteland 2! Fight

As for PoE II, I will wait just because the last one started so... meh, but I imagine I will pick it up before too long.

Not the best choice for a give away, anybody who is interested in PoEt 2 probably already has Wasteland 2 by now.

Aside from that, you guys are naysaying pretty hard, Pillars 2 launch will be playable, just like the first game was. Buggy, probably, but finishable for sure. Then I'll replay after 4-5 months worth of patches, then probably again when DLCs start coming out.

Basically just like Pillars 1 for me.

PoEt 2 will most likely be less buggy than the first game; they've got all the engine issues resolved, they are familiar with all the tools... I'm expecting a few text errors, maybe a broken side quest, but finishable day 1, version 1.0. Balance wise, I'm sure some stuff will be overpowered, but it's a single player game, it won't really be an issue for most people's first playthrough if they do overhauls like 8 months later.

eRe4s3r, where are you reading a concrete number for the DLCs? I thought even Obsidian hadn't decided yet, aside from the one DLC from the Fig funding thing.

On the official store page on gog for obsidian edition they talk about 3 DLC's

Specifically here
https://www.gog.com/game/pillars_of_eternity_ii_deadfire_obsidian_edition

Dunno wtf is up today, but GoG nearly crapped out loading half a dozen times before that opened.

DLC Content Packs #1-3: Robust content expansions to the base game that will add new areas, new experiences, new items, and expand the world of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. (post-launch content, a $30 value)

And please remember, I played PoE 1 beta and release, I suffered (And helped fix) the savegame bug among with a few others in the forum after Obsidian ignoring us for nearly 4 days, fully with reverse indexing the entire savegame to show Obsidian where they fucked up, and no, it was not "finishable" for everyone until they hotfixed that issue. Your savegames could have become corrupt by act 3 or increase so much in size that each new area load (and save) took minutes. We are talking 2+ minutes. On a SSD

Sorry, but for me Obsidian is one of these "Good when patched" developers and I will not even touch this until all 3 DLC's are out I learned my lesson hard with White March part 1 and part 2 mess where you could get locked out of the next DLC if you if you had Part 1 and finished the game, and your only remaining saves were in the last acts....

So much bashing on POE1, I enjoyed the heck out of it at release. Yes, it bogged down a bit in the big city, but I finished it without much bug issues. I played it again a couple years later with all the patches and DLC and had just as much fun. High hopes for POE2.
BONUS: You can substitute WL2 for POE1 and WL3 for POE2 in the above paragraph for extra credit.

Wait and enjoy is the motto

Given how bad PoE was they should just be giving PoE2 away for free by way of apology. Wasteland 2 wasn't much better either. Shadowrun on the other hand was good. Here's hoping Battletech can pull it out as well.

Underwhelming since Wasteland 2 was already a pledge reward for certain PoE tiers back in the day (like my CE level pledge). They should have rewarded something like Torment or Tyranny instead.

Oh well, GOTY for me anyway. I'm done buying, let alone pledging or preordering, Obshittian's buggy, incomplete crapola alpha products.
