Pillars of Eternity’s Next Expansion Gets New Trailer and Release Date

Classic RPG fans rejoice! Obsidian Entertainment’s incredible foray into the isometric RPGs of yesteryear will be receiving yet more content in the form of a new expansion pack called Pillars of Eternity: The White March Part 2. The expansion will emerge on February 16, 2016:

The expansion will let players cap off the White March storyline and explore new locations in the Eastern Reach. Additionally, there will be a raised level cap and a lovely new companion called Meneha the Barbarian. The expansion, or “xpack” as I understand all the cool kids call it, will be emerging a little later than planned, as Obsidian had previously announced plans for a January release date.

Pillars of Eternity has been lavished with a great deal of praise from fans of old school RPGs, and its success was thanks in no small part to its nearly 80,000 backers and $4 million budget. Interested in playing the original game before the expansion comes out? You can pick it up from steam here.
