Feargus Urquhart, CEO Obsidian Entertainment said:
[blockquote]Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is the first sequel we’ve made to one of our own games. Building on the incredible foundation of the first Pillars of Eternity, we’ve been able to create an even more dynamic world with systems such as our open world approach to the Deadfire. What’s been even more gratifying is the incredible support our community has given us over the years. Without them we would not have been able to create this amazing RPG.[/blockquote]
The standard edition of Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (£32.99 – digital and £44.99 physical retail) contains the base game, while the Deluxe Edition (£46.99) includes the game’s official soundtrack composed by Justin Bell, an in-game pet, a Deadfire themed special in-game item, a digital pen and paper RPG starter guide, a high-resolution game map and Volume II of the digital guide book, published by Dark Horse. Taking a step up, the Obsidian Edition (£57.99 – digital and £69.99 physical retail) includes everything that comes in the Deluxe Edition as well as the first three DLC expansions for Pillars of Eternity II (normally £7.49 each), the first of which, ‘Beast of Winter’, will be available in July.
